    A Bing engineer was mentioned in saying they are still working on the back end technical side of things with Cortana.
    Thanks for Tips, fortunately the problem my friend

    But I'm glad Lumia520 Can Support 3 Tile

    Yes, Cortana is still full Beta release.
    There may be a new update coming via Dev Preview to fix some things, no idea what is all in it
    but the main thing is to fix the issue for people who are getting errors when trying to run the second part of update to 8.1

    it is unknown if current successful updates to 8.1 will get this next one.
    Nor is it know if there will be any other fixes in this update.

    As Preview for Devs (this time around) seems more for all of us willing to take the plunge are actually beta testing 8.1
    GDR3, was more complete.

    that is not a bad thing, I don't mind doing it myself.

    Also, see this...... and contribute as needed.... let's help make WP the best it can be.

    There are some updates to fix issues on, for example the Lumia Icon, where the power button doesn't put the device to sleep or anything.

    Also, Xbox Music is to be updated on Tuesday and the Xbox team I believe stated they're going to shoot for biweekly updates of it. Good! Because it sucks more than a Hoover.... That's been my ONLY main issue with the Preview is Xbox Music. When I'm driving, I want to be able to quickly switch songs or artists and right now, that can be delayed by a whole minute and a half.

    Thanks for the info,, and that is odd, I don't have that issue with xBox Music
    also,, if you hold the search button and tell Cortana, Next Track, she will go to it.
    If you tell her previous track, she will restart the current track you are on, bummer.

    I do however,, have the issue with the phone not coming back on after it does sleep, or pausing for a moment to open
    Also, Cortana for Time and Location based Reminders are not working for me.

    It seems like people are having different issues across same model of devices as well, it really weird.
    I wouldn't go back through even if I could, over all, so far, 8.1 is pretty dang sweet.

    I concur, I wouldn't even consider at this point going back to 8.0. It's just like Windows 8.1.1.

    I did have a problem with Cortana for the first day where she wouldn't even be alive and would just do Bing searches. Apparently it was an issue on the Bing back end servers that was resolved, now I have a cheeky and delightful assistant!

    Xbox Music for some reason on my 920 is just poop. Cortana can play a song, but I think she also needs to know what artist as I have a couple of songs, one original and one cover song, by two different artists.

    hmmm,, that artist issue could be.
    Maybe she doesn't pick up on conflicts with Music yet. I have not tested that.

    I really hope the Tilesparency developer makes a universal app for W8.1 also. It would alleviate some of the issues with tiles I have cluttering the start background.
