Nokia Asha 230, Asha 500, Asha 501, Asha 502 and Asha 503 have today received a new software update which includes push notifications, and an updated Fastlane which now shows the notifications from the social platform like re-tweets and Facebook likes.

The firm says it has also improved the camera experience on Asha with a panorama mode offering and a voice-guided selfie feature. The update will store photos automatically (or manually) on Microsoft OneDrive – each user has 7GB of free space.

According Nokia East Africa’s King’ori Gitahi Asha users will receive an important push notification letting them know once the update is available. Users can also manually check for the update by going to Settings > Phone Update.

“We are very focused on enhancing the user experience on all our devices. With this update, we have added voice guided selfie shots and panorama modes in camera, a power save mode for improved battery life, video stabilisation and parental control for the browser and Nokia Store access,” Gitahi said.
