Week in Review: April 7th

Welcome to the Week in Review, where we recap the top stories of the week.

WP 8.1 update for developers coming April 14th or 15th!

  • Joe Belfiore even confirmed that the developer preview will be available early in the week of April 14th
  • The update will be accessible through the Dev Preview program

8.1 still isn’t improving Office

  • Joe Belfiore announced that the new 8.1 update won’t bring any significant new features to Office on Windows Phone, which has remained stagnant for quite awhile.

Prepare for the 8.1 dev preview

  • To install the 8.1 developer preview before the painfully slow carrier rollouts, you first have to become a “developer”
  • You can become a developer through Microsoft’s App Studio for free
  • Then, install the Preview for Developers app and await the update!
  • Installing previews might void your warranty
