Nokia X update brings more Microsoft, a new task switcher and store

The Nokia X line of devices is recieving a sofware update which adds a number of new features and enhancements. These include a number of pre-installed Microsoft services, as well as a new app switcher.

When activated, the new app switcher displays your apps as a series of cards. This is a lot like the switcher found on the Nokia X2. To activate it, swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the app switcher icon. You can select the app you want to switch to, or tap the "X" below an app to close it.

Three of Microsoft's services will now come pre-installed on the Nokia X. The note-taking app OneNote, email, and Microsoft's OneDrive are all now part of the Nokia X. They join Skype, which has been avialable on the Nokia X line from the start.

There are also some improvements to the Nokia Store. These changes are designed to make it easier to search and find apps and games on the store. The Store now also integrates with third-party stores so that you can search for apps in one place on your phone. There is also a new Home screen Spotlight widget for easier app discover, as well as one-click downloads.

The update is available for the Nokia X, X+, and XL. You can wait for it to download automatically, or go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check now to download the update manually.
