The most notable new addition is the Notifications Center.

Another noteworthy enhancement is the Cortana voice assistant, which should in all probability work similar to Siri and Google Now from Apple and Google respectively. Also making the cut in Windows Phone 8.1 is sorting of app lists and actionable notifications.

Anyway, this new information that both companies are testing the new version comes from here, and shows the FB Page Manager application installed on devices powered by various builds of Windows Phone 8.1. No further details, however are available.
