Nokia Lumia 520 FM radio to be enabled; network testing taking place mid-May.

This comes care of the tech news website My New Machine, from a submission from one of it readers.
That person has contacted Nokia, through its website's live chat feature - entitled Nokia Care Chat.
They asked the Nokia representative about the FM tuner built into the Lumia 520, where the response was -
"In Windows 8 you cannot use the FM facility"
“But in future you may use in the Nokia Lumia 520"
Microsoft’s rumoured General Distribution Release (GDR2) update is supposedly going to enable this aspect within Windows Phone 8 - as we reported here.
This is along with double-tapping the screen to awake from standby, with Nokia improvements such as flipping the mobile to silence a ringing phone.
WMPoweruser has reported that carriers will begin testing out this update during this month, news of which was spotted in an Australian network's own forum.
