Microsoft on Wednesday announced two new updates for its mobile and desktop operating systems including Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update 1. Both updates bring quite a few new features — although some are more important than others — and they will be available soon. Meanwhile, users who want to know more details about the main features available in Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8.1 OS can check out three new Microsoft videos in which Joe Belfiore recaps everything there is to know about it, including useful tips and tricks.

In addition to these three videos, Windows Phone users can also check out Microsoft’s recently released Siri vs Cortana video comparison, and an extensive collection of new YouTube clips that further detail its virtual voice-based assistant, one of the main features of Windows Phone 8.1. All three videos follow below.
