Get Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview now!

It is now available although it is not the final version. Get a free Microsoft Developer Account and Start a project.

You start right here by accessing this link and once there sign-in with your Windows Credentials:

Once there you start your project as shown here:

In this screen you start creating a project.
You do not have to create a full blown project but test the water with some minimum features and save.

You will get an email to take it further.

To get the develope's preview click on OS preview for developers which will take you to this link here:

Note that you can register
* as Windows Phone Developer
* as developer with App Studio
* or 'Developer unlock your phone'

Before you download read the contents on this page paying attention to the following warnings:

•After you install a preview update, you may void any warranty from your mobile operator and OEM.
•A preview update only includes the Microsoft portion of the update; mobile operator and OEM driver updates will be available when the official update for your phone is available.
•You cannot revert or return to a prior operating system release version after you have updated your phone to a preview update. We will move you forward to a "released state," but we cannot take you back to a prior "released state."

You will get an email with instructions to install. Open the email in your Phone (herein, Nokia Lumia Icon).

After you install you will have to agree for some license terms before your installation completes.
The updating of phone OS takes quite a bit of time and finally you will get a 'Installed successfully' message.

When it completes you get some information on New Settings:
  • Wi-Fi Sense
  • Automatic Update of Store Apps
  • Microsoft account Updates
You will also recieve a free message on your phone asking you to go to:
There are tons of things you can do with your new installation. The one I like immediately is to choose the option to connect to Wi-Fi ovr cellular as my data plan is limited.
