    while on a travel 3 months ago I noticed something new on websites, I don't know if this was available previously on WP 8.0 or if is exclusive on WP 8.1, probably someone with WP8.0 can try, but this feature is not working on iOS or Android either, visiting websites that contain street addresses will highlight those as hyperlinks and if you just tap on those links your navigation app will open, is this feature coming from Cortana or from the Maps app? it was available on WP 8.0?

    I been trying this on an iPhone 5s, HTC One and Galaxy S5, none of them can do this...

    test with some random websites on your smartphone:

    El Paso Chess Club | Chess Club USA
    Breaking Bad Tour - Wikitravel

    opening those websites with iOS or Android will show just plain text, same on a desktop PC, with addresses not highlighted...

    this is how it looks on WP

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Cortana's contextual engine picks up on details like addresses and phone numbers everywhere, so I would think it's a part of Cortana

    yup WP is pretty smart.
    I'm surprised other OS doesn't have it. guess it'll be another one of our rare exclusives :]

    But is not working anymore after the wp8.1 update 1, it just recognizes phone numbers, not addresses, nor time/date/days, just phone numbers like iOS or Android, that sux
