    I've seen a few videos saying the search button doesn't work in the SDK for 8.1, but reading the documentation it says you have to now double-tap the search button (to avoid accidental search). Perhaps there are some wee secrets under there? Can anyone confirm this?

    it is disabled since Microsoft don't want to show all the features of windows phone 8.1 in sdk , most probably it will open voice assistant or new Bing smart search , and for double tap yes it is said in applications and games , since many users have complaint they press the button while playing games , so it won't open up ;)

    They thing is, they tried context search and people complained. Then they made it exclusively Bing and people complained.... So changing it again will just cause problems.

    P.s. I find it funny that the same thing happened with windows 8. Started contextual and then switched.
