Unannounced Bonus Features That Come with Tango
As we all were sitting around and waiting for our Tango updates over at WP Central they were playing around with it and noticed a few features that Microsoft did not announce was coming with the update.
- New wallpapers – We first noticed this on our Tango-fied Lumia 610 but Microsoft is now including those new “nature” themed wallpapers in the Tango ROM
- Faster numeric PIN response – At least on our 8112 devices (Titan II, Focus 2, Lumia 900), when we would attempt to unlock our PIN on our phone it would sometimes be very slow and not register, requiring you to re-enter the number. While minor, it was annoying. That was fixed by updating all our devices.
- Send ringtone via MMS – This surprisingly only showed on our AT&T phones (and not our Sprint Arrive) but we can now attach and send ringtones to others via MMS. You can only send custom ringtones though and nothing that is “in ROM”. This in addition to the new “send voice note” and attach multiple images in an MMS that’s found in Tango too.
- Letter indexing – On Windows Phone 7.x after a user installs 45 apps, the app list will automatically index, giving you the “letter picker” to jump to find your favorite app. The problem, albeit minor, was if you went below 45, the “letter picker” would not disappear. It was odd behavior and nothing we ever experienced but Tango evidently fixes this.
While none of these features are stunning or a game changer it’s just always nice to get something extra!
