    So, Now that the 8.1 Preview is out and the world of technology moves so quickly, some people will already be looking to the next new and best features.

    What are the top features that were missed in 8.1 do would you love to see in WP 8.2?

    Ability for Cortana to change reminders herself instead of asking us to do it manually.. But it's not a deal breaker for me anyways

    Smarter web fields, WP should be able to save certain info about you ex. Name, address, phone number, email address etc. The ability for it to be smarter and save this info will just be a click to fill the blank field

    Think of your favorite live album....you know how in between tracks there's some crowd noise? Without gapless playback there will be a second or so of silence in between each track, instead of flowing smoothly.

    It's jarring, to say the least.

    Apples playback on there iPod and iPhones seems to have gapless playback. Faster transitions from track to track

    Yep, and a tick box for gapless playback in iTunes when adding albums.

    More customizations on the Start Screen.
    Cortana becoming more and more human
    Stop button on Xbox Music App. :(

    That's all I can think of right now.

    Office Universal Apps with Ribbon UI in landscape mode.
    Games back to the hub, not the App List.
    Reading List app with PC sync.
    Alarms app to be revamped to look more like Windows 8's.


    I know Cortana is in Beta but, anyway.
    • Cortana to be in Spanish and other languages. Or at least to not have the need to change the whole system's language in order to use it.
    • Cortana to use HERE Maps instead of Bing ones (HERE has much more information about my country, for example).
    • Better context recognition, eg: "Make this alarm" and then "Cancel it". "Who's Barack Obama", then "How tall is he?"
    • Cortana to be integrated with Rotten Tomatoes and so on to ask her about movies, and why not, with IGN and ask her about videogames and their scores aswell.
    • Back and forth conversations with Cortana (chit chat).

    A sorted list in the 'Settings' ... may be by use or alphabetically. At present on day one something is on top and then after updates it goes to the bottom of the settings menu!!

    It's for tracks that are supposed to sound like a single long track. No gap or crossfade.

    EAP-TTLS/PAP authentication. Android's phase 2 authentication options. WP8.1 preview only has EAP-TTLS. Many enterprises and universities use phase 2 authentication. Copy from android atleast.

    -actionable notifications
    -interactive live tiles
    -larger size for live tiles (Like Windows 8) and maybe only these tiles can be interactive because they're bigger, the size of 2 double wide tiles stacked on top of each other
