We all krecent Windows Phone 8.1 is coming. It has already leaked numerous times before in tips, screenshots and even detailed videos. Thanks to all those leaks we know a notification center with toggles is coming, a brand recent voice assistant is on the way too, among other features.

But what will be the next Windows Phone version called? Well, its name is rather boring, though expected, and now confirmed officially - Windows Phone 8.1.

Microsoft has already started updating the compatibility section of the apps in the Windows Phone store. We can see Windows Phone 8.1 version above the previous Windows Phone 8. As it turns out most of the Windows Phone 8-copatible apps, if not all of them, are compatible with the next version of the OS. But don't expect those developed specifically to work with the WP 8.1 to be backward compatible due to the recent APIs and services.

Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to be detailed on the upcoming Microsoft BUILD conference on April 2. The Developer's Preview WP8.1 update should be launched during BUILD, while the final version should become available to every WP8-compatible device out there a few weeks later.
