Today at Build, Microsoft announced new features for both Live Tiles and the Action Center. The new features were revealed in the session “What’s new for Tiles and Toast Notifications”.
Chaseable Live Tiles
The Live Tiles are getting smarter with the ability to show the story that is listed on the Live Tile in the app itself at first place. This means that the Live Tile and the order of the content in the app are getting synced. This feature is not a big addition but it makes the user experience nicer and more consistent.
Adaptive Toast Notifications
With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft makes interactive toast notifications even more interactive. Notifications will get many new features, for example bigger images, more information, more options… Furthermore, context menus can be added to notifications.
On Windows 10, apps that are open can show a number on their icon in the task bar to highlight the number of notifications.
Microsoft Edge now also supports web notifications.
