In a great WP8.1 FAQ O2 UK reveals Visual Voicemail, Cortana and more, coming to their Windows Phones

imageO2 UK has posted up a great FAQ regarding the Windows Phone 8.1 update for their customers to their support forums.

In the FAQ they confirm the WP8.1+Cyan update will start rolling out “towards the end of July with others following over a few weeks past then” and will support the 520, 620, 625, 720, 820, 920, 925, 1020, 1520.

They also added some new information however.

They revealed that Visual Voice Mail will be coming to their Windows Phone 8.1 handsets, working the same way as on the iPhone, though the Nokia Lumia 635 and 930 will have to wait a bit for this to roll-out.

They said:

Anything else we can look forward to?
As a matter of fact, yes, and it will launch exclusively on O2. Visual Voicemail! Want it? You got it! We’ve been working closely with Nokia to implement this feature into our network and to get it enabled on devices via the new 8.1 update. This works similarly to how it does on an iPhone – when you receive a voicemail it is downloaded to your handset and gives you visual controls to play, pause and delete. No more calling 901/Voicemail for you.

The company also confirmed that Cortana will not be included in the initial update but arrive “some time in Q4

O2 also revealed they are working “tirelessly” to bring their O2 WIFI, TU Go (which lets you send text messages using your tablet or PC using your phone number) and My O2 apps to Windows Phone 8.1 also, which is good news, especially for the cool TU Go app.
