If you’re a Nokia Lumia 920 owner, then pay attention. The latest WP8 update called GDR2 is arriving tomorrow. While there’s been much conversation about its testing/approval process online, it’s good news tonight.

Telstra Products and Service Team member CraigR confirmed the GDR2 update is coming on Telstra’s Crowd Support site.

The Lumia 920 GDR2 update will go live from tomorrow morning (16 August). It was approved by Telstra on 5 August.

Here’s what’s included in the updated:

Xbox Music
It’s now easier to select, download, and pin music. Plus, music fans will see more accurate metadata (such as song and album information) and many other performance improvements.

FM radio
Listen to FM radio right from the Music+Videos hub. (Not available for all phones.)

Data Sense
Stay on top of your phone’s data usage with Data Sense. You can set a limit based on your data plan, or just keep track of which apps use the most data. (Not all mobile operators offer Data Sense.)

Skype
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) apps like Lync and Skype now feature improved stability and performance.

Internet Explorer
Your web browsing experience is now better than ever with improved HTML 5 compatibility.

Camera
Set your favorite Lens so it opens automatically when you press the camera button. (Not available for all phones.)

Update

The GDR2 update did indeed arrive today for Telstra 920 owners. What we weren’t ready for was up to an hour without the phone. Now the update is done, the FM radio is definitely a welcome return to the platform.
