    Windows Phone 8.1

    Its well know that Windows Phone works flawlessly with CUE. For those enjoying that and thinking of installing 8.1 via the Developer Preview rather than wait a few months for your carrier to push it out, be aware that you will need to unpair and re-pair your phone after installing 8.1. If you don't, CUE won't relay your voice commands to the phone such as to read texts or to dictate a text. Once you re-pair the phone its back to phone/CUE nirvana.

    Now back to our regular scheduled discussions......

    I pulled down the dev preview the day it came out. Apparently today was the first time I tried to use voice commands, because I gave up after 5 tries. I'll re-pair tonight after work. Thanks! I often see you over at WPC and I get confused as to what board I'm on

    You only have to do it the once? Started sounding like this would have to be done every time you get in the car.

    Should be just once. I attributed this to WP8.1 using a different BT profile than WP8 and the car still thinking the phone was using the profile from WP8. Re-pairing forces CUE to upate its information about the phone including the BT profile the phone is now using.

    You can tell by the infractions count by my avatar. I got busted at WPC when someone went on a hate rant against Google. A bunch of people asked how ANYONE could possibly hate a company that much and I guessed that maybe Google raped his sister. But some good came of it; I convinced them to add rape and variations to their filters to protect people like me from themselves.

    I would not say it works flawlessly as I wished the Pandora app would work. However, that is a Pandora issue and not WP. The developers release is awesome

    Did you catch Cortana on Arsenio? I didn't even know he was back on the air until someone sent me the link to the video. I was kind of surprised his writers were aware of how much better WP voice recognition was compared to iOS and worked that in several times.
