List of Microsoft Lumia Smartphones getting the Windows 10 Update!

Windows 1o as an operating system is bringing so many great things to the table and the desktop and tablet version of the same operating system is already out. Microsoft has decided to unify their operating system ecosystem by making a single operating system for both mobile devices as well as PC and laptops. There will not be a mobile version of Windows for smartphones, but the same Windows 10 for desktop will work without any flaws on all devices including smartphones and tablets.

Microsoft released the test builds for a few Lumia devices in February, but they didn’t make it clear if the old smartphone users – who are coming from Nokia will get the update or not. But we have a confirmation that the older Lumia devices will also get the Windows 10 update and we have the list.

Windows 10 for Lumia devices

Windows 10 for smartphones and Lumia devices is kind of a big deal when it comes to the fraction of ownership that Microsoft has when it comes to mobile sphere. Windows 10 brings a lot of new things to the table and after a disappointing Windows 8.1 update for their devices, people are looking forward to have some good update that not only makes their device better in terms of performance but also provides some great features.

Let us take a look at some of the features that are new on Windows 10 for smartphones.

Windows 10 Features for smartphones

  • Make full sized images background for start screen: The Windows Phone 8.1 update brought this feature to life but Windows 10 takes it a new level and you can now apply a full image as a background in start screen.
  • Better quick actions in Action Center: Quick Actions were introduced with Windows Phone 8.1 and in the Windows 10 update they have added some extra actions and you can now expand the quick action center and have three rows of actions you can perform.
  • Better Speech-to-text: Speech to text has been a nightmare for both Windows for PC as well as Windows Phone but with Windows 10 the speech-to-text is improved to a new extent. The conversion is instant and the punctuations appear automatically.
  • Better photos app: Photos app will now show photos from your OneDrive account as well as the photos on your phone. The experience and the app is much better than what it used to be on Windows Phone 8.1.
  • Actionable Notifications: You can now interact with the notifications directly without going in the app. Example, you can reply to a text message right from the notification toast as it appears.
