Those who use Windows Phone are eagerly awaiting the new Windows Phone 8.1 update, and with it a huge number of updates that will hit the phone. On Wednesday, a preview video or leak of the upcoming notification center was released, and shows what is coming for Windows Phone users.
The new notification center on Windows Phone 8.1 will be named the action center according to many, and will have a lot of the features that iOS and Android users currently enjoy. The video is still in preview mode, but shows what the notification center will become later this year.
A New Notification Center
With the new notification center in Windows Phone 8.1, users will get a number of new features that other users have been having on other phone operating systems. One of the best new features will be quick access to toggled settings like WiFi, Bluetooth, screen brightness, and other items. This alone should be a hit for Windows Phone fans.
With these quick settings, the video shows that these settings are actually configured based on the users actions and preferences. It’s not 100% known how it actually does this, but the action center gives users the ability to switch that off, reset it back, and make adjustments according to their phone needs.
Windows Phone Needs Notifications and More
With the news of the notification center being added to Windows Phone 8.1, this means that Windows Phone users will have a real operating system. Other operating systems have had this type of tool available to them, and now Windows Phone will with Windows Phone 8.1. Microsoft is finally stepping up and making Windows Phone 8.1 the real deal.
This type of update along with the others being added to Windows Phone 8.1 is perfect for the new phones that are scheduled to be released later this year. With all the software and hardware improvements being added to Windows Phone, it makes Windows Phone a phone that could go beyond the 3% marketshare that it currently operates. It can go head to head with Android and iOS with this type of update, finally from Microsoft.
I have watched this video a few times with amazement. I have a Nokia 1020, and cannot wait for the new updates to arrive for Windows Phone 8.1
