Microsoft Details Upcoming GDR2 Update, Data Sense Coming To More Carriers

Microsoft today detailed the upcoming Windows Phone 8 update coming this summer. This is not a major update but it includes small number of improvements and upgrades. Microsoft noted that this is similar to the update they released earlier this year which brought Wi-Fi and messaging improvements like the ability to text a reply to an incoming call. Here are the improvements Microsoft noted on their blog,

The new update, which is expected to start rolling out to existing Windows Phone 8 phones later this summer, brings back support for FM radio (we heard you!) and makes the Data Sense feature of Windows Phone 8 available for more carriers to offer. The update also makes it easier to select, download, and pin tunes in Xbox Music and improves the accuracy of song info and other metadata—something I know music fans will appreciate. (FM Radio and Data Sense availability depend on your phone model and carrier.)

The update includes hundreds of other small quality improvements. One final one worth highlighting, as we announced earlier, is that the update also ensures Windows Phone continues to work with Google services by adding support for the company’s newest sync protocols—CalDAV and CardDAV.
