Overview of the Features in GDR2 and Amber Update for Windows Phone 8 [Video]

Nokia released the Amber update for Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices few days back. The Amber update sits on top of the Microsoft’s GDR2 update which also adds more features to the platform. Apart from this, Amber adds features from Nokia for the Lumia series. Along with Nokia, other phone manufacturers like HTC are also releasing the GDR2 update.

We have already covered some of the new features in the Amber update rolled out by Nokia.


In case you want to know the list of all new features in GDR2 + Amber update, here is a video walkthrough of the update on Lumia 920.

Nirmal is a big fan of Windows phone ever since it was released. He started off with Nokia Lumia 800 and then got the Lumia 920. Presently he owns the Lumia 730 and Lumia 930.


  1. It is not rolled out for all phones, will be complete by September end. For low end phones, it is coming soon.

  2. That’s one reason I would love to flash another ROM. Any idea if its available for Country Variant devices?

  3. 2 days back i have updated my lumia 620 with amber update but some features are not there like FM ,double tap and pro cam .will this features will come in another update or not.

  4. @Ankesh,
    Let me clarify your doubts.
    1. FM is not available for Lumia 620, it is the only lumia phone which will not support FM.
    2. Double tap- Again not available to low end phones I guess
    3. Pro cam is available only for Lumia 925, 928 and 920.

  5. My Lumia 920 says it has the Amber release, however I don’t have some of the “features” that I should have… Any ideas?
