It was a day back when wpworld.pl started a rumor that WP8.1 GDR2 will start rolling out on 8th October for Preview for Developers users based on a claim from a supposed Microsoft employee, Sylwester Salek. This report is Fake. Many sites including WPCentral, WMPoweruser and other chinese websites reported this and said it might be true. We have got a word from Ex-Microsoftie, Nawzil that the new update will not come on October 8 and the leaked info was totally false. Nawzil made a vague statement saying that he had already set the Facebook event to 8th October but didn't approve the rumor to be true.
Now, we saw wpworld.pl reacting to this and had published a post saying the rumor is false and Sylwester Salek is not a Microsoft employee or leaker at all and it’s nothing more than a false rumor.
Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 is rumored to bring these features:
-The ability to create groups of applications in the application list.
-Sorting options in the Settings.
-File manager application becomes a system, so as to be able to use other applications.
-The ability to change the default messages application.
-News communications – DLNA, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth Profiles.
We apologize for the wrong information we provided to our readers. This is why we should not trust anyone on the internet. We are extremely sorry for the wrong info provided by us and we assure that this won't happen in future. We will confirm the identity of the person before taking his leak on to our account. Stay tuned with us because we still believe that the the genuine dates will be out soon. Till then enjoy Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 1 and also let us know what features you want from Microsoft inn future updates.
