Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1: New Features Leaked
Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 will bring along the ability for users to create 'Live Folders' in the Start screen, apart from featuring other major enhancements.

Microsoft is all set to bring the most anticipated Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 to developers starting next week. One of the highlights that the new OS update promises to bring along is the support to create 'Live Folders' in the Start screen, in much the same way as folders are created in iOS.

Once the Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 starts rolling out officially, users should be able to create folders by simply dragging and dropping live tiles on top of each other.

This feature, termed 'Live Folders' can now be seen in a new video that seemingly provides a demonstration of how to create folders in the Start screen in smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 update 1.

Check out the below video.

The video shows that users can long press a tile to select/move it and then drag and drop it on another tile, to create a folder.

After a new folder is created, users should also be able to remove tiles from within the folder, by dragging that particular tile to anywhere on the start screen.

As of now, only the 'Live Folder' support is demoed in the latest video. However, Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 is also expected to bring along other features like support for interactive phone cases, and Microsoft's much anticipated personal digital assistant Cortana (currently confined to the United States).

The Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 will also bring along multiple enhancements to Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11 web browser.
