    Love it on my 1520.
    For some reason Cortana did not show up on my 1320 though. Any body have any ideas as to why?

    I love the update but that one feature that does bug me is one of the many reasons I dislike Android...that Notification Center.

    On one hand...I like it and it feels better than the Notification Center on Android since I last used in 2013

    On the other hand....It bugs me because ALL THOSE notifications are there and with my Work appointments(I do modeling and casting calls and auditions so I have a lot of emails plus school, family and personal) not to mention texts....I definitely feel overloaded.

    My Action Center looks VISUALLY Better than Android's mess but I am literally overloaded.

    Goodness knows what will happen when our apps can then launch in the notification Center...OVERLOAD XD

    You know what? You can SET IT the way you want. Don't want mails to appear in it? They don't. Don't want your calendar to appear there? It doesn't.

    Finding some of my accounts stuck in a never ending "syncing" status since the upgrade. And this has drained my battery 30% in the last hour. Soft reset doesnt do much as they go back in to syncing.

    Also initial impressions show some lag in some areas. Whatsapp seems a little laggy now going back and forth into it and writing messages. The new Xbox Hub is very laggy for me and my avatar is laggy also.

    ​Still testing..
    How did you get FB to display updates in notification center

    The only thing I dont like about it is instead of putting text from one person all together you get a notification for each one. No biggie but if your a big texter you will wind up with a huge list to scroll through

    Doesn't seem to be an option yet....will be part of the app eventually. Surprised that it doesn't have it since Windows created the app and updated it for 8.1.

    No regrets updating. At some point, we all have to get used to the changes and I'm all for getting that out of the way. Store works fine for me; here Drive+ & here Maps all good; Facebook connected with phone (definitely a little strange getting used to People & Me tiles now.)

    All in all, I love the update. I'm sure with some time, updated apps and a little experience with the changes, I'll love it even more.

    It's available. You have to update the app and set it up to connect with your phone.

    Dont like that Cortana has to have location to work. I just want to voice input quick reminders............


    Also, I noticed if I hold the windows key down nothing happens anymore, no voice dialer

    Please help!!! I have a 920. At 6:30 this morn I started the update. It was stuck on the gears for 2 hours without moving so I did a soft reset. I waited another 2 hours with no changes and tried to do a hard reset. Still stuck on gears with no movement. Any ideas??

    Install was flawless on both my 920 and 1020. Love Cortana. Love Data Sense. Love new calendar. Hate the notification center (I won't be using THAT). Hate the transparent tiles (I won't be using THAT either). Hate that the Me tile is now gutted and useless, forcing me to send the SAME POST THREE TIMES. Hate the fact that there are now TWO Facebook links in the "post an update" in the Me tile.

    Pin it to start (it's in the apps list). But, you don't really need it there because when you click the Search button you get Cortana.

    If your phone is very full, it could well take that much time because it has to rearrange things just to get the new update. If you are near capacity I would HIGHLY suggest deleting photos & music (back them up first, obviously, if you don't already sync to the cloud). This will speed things up considerably.

    Agreed. Notification options seem very similar to the iPhone. Me likey.

    I'd actually like to turn OFF the notification center completely. It's a pain in the rear end.
