Updated fine, so far so good :)


Voice to text seems to be fine for me 90% of the time (i'm on XT). How do you do text to voice ? I don't see an option for it to read the text to me?

Also, when I start office now it syncs all my notes wth skydrive... any idea where to disable this? god skydrive will rape my bandwidth,

Cheers

Theres a new speech option in settings now. Go settings> speech and when in speech scroll right to the bottom and theres an option there "read incoming text messages aloud" turn that on,


Not sure bout the office thing. I never really use office to be honest. But i do have a few notes so might have to investigate how to turn off auto syncing

oh @larno, can you confirm if speech to text works over 3g?  im trying to isolate the problem :) cheers

ps. for everyone who is on mango, can you also confirm this bug?
if you listen to music for longer periods of time the phone hangs and is not responsive. will have to remove battery.

my device : htc hd7
currently subscribed to zune pass (not sure if this plays a role in the bug)
not developer handset
no sideload/home brew apps.

Ropenuts: How did you get the facebook chat to work? When i try to go to whos online in messaging, it just says no ones online when i know that there is people online...


Yeah, I too get address invalid as it trys to add in FB chat to messenging and then you end up on a FB rss page with ie O_o.

Might not be working yet?


@Mcub3d : Yes it works fine over 3g for me infact its the only way I have used it. I have a at&t unlocked samsung focus on telecom XT.

Facebook chat is working for me now. I just had to resync facebook by going into settings> email and accounts then doing a long press on facebook and it'll give you an option to resync do it and should work.


IE9 seems like an awesome browser. Ive noticed some pages just load way nicer and all. Mango rocks

There was an option to turn on and turn off onenote syncing prior to the mango update. It's not there anymore. Could be a missing feature in the beta build or maybe they forgot to add it back again.

I don't play too many games. lots of emailing and chatting. the focus has a 1500mAh battery which helps.
