    Hello friends. Loving 😍 the 8.1 update but I have few concerns and hopefully you can address them.
    1) My battery life is worse with the update so if I put battery saver and enable whatsapp(emails aren't that important to me) can I save a bit of battery and not miss important things??
    2) I am from India and my Cortana is working because I have out the region to USA! Now when my location is off Bing search comes but when my location is on Cortana comes. May I know how you got Cortana without enabling location instead of Bing search? Thank you. Please help a
    Fellow WP lover.

    You'll probably have to experiment with the background tasks to get the best results for you. There seems to be some people experiencing extreme battery drain with certain apps.

    As for Cortana, it only works with Location and Data/WiFi on. There's no 'offline' mode for it.

    Thank you. But you mean Cortana doesn't work without location and Bing search comes?

    I mean that Cortana requires a data connection and location to work.
