Video: Get a sneak peak of the upcoming Chaseable Live Tiles and improved Notifications in Windows 10


At Build 2016, Microsoft announced some new updates coming to the Live Tiles and Action Center in Windows 10. Yesterday, the company announced Chaseable Live Tiles, and some widget-like notifications in the Action Center. Microsoft also announced that Universal Windows Apps will also get a badge for the number of notifications in the taskbar. For example, if you have 5 unread notifications from Twitter, the Twitter app will show “5” in its badge on the Taskbar.

For those wondering, the Chaseable Live Tiles allows users to directly navigate to content that gets shown in the live tile. For example, if the Twitter app’s live tile is showing a tweet from Twitter Moments, clicking on it will open that Moments page rather than just opening the homepage of the app. Additionally, Microsoft also announced some nice additional toast features for notification which is quite nice, too.


Microsoft showed off these new features in a session at Build 2016, and you can watch it below:
