HTC One M8 for Windows gets Softcard NFC payment update


The HTC One M8 for Windows will never get Lumia Denim, but Verizon M8 owners need not feel left out, as there is in fact an update available today for you also.

Verizon has just posted an update for the handset which takes it to version 2061.30.21705.605.

The update does not get many new features, but does bring official support for Softcard NFC Payment (users will still need to download the Softcard app).

It also brings a number of fixes, including:

  • Resolved an issue where the phone was intermittently not able to power on.
  • Fixed the copy/paste functionality at the time of Xbox account sign in.
  • Improved stability to prevent the phone from rebooting on its own.

HTC One M8 for Windows owners can get the update by checking for updates under Settings>Phone Updates>Check for updates.
