Windows Phone 8.1 Notification Center Leaked in Screenshots
Microsoft is working on highly requested feature “Notification Center” for Windows Phone 8. It will be included with Windows Phone 8.1. With this update, users will be able to customize and control the app and phone notifications direct from homescreen.
Winphollowers has published a screenshot showing the new notification center of Windows Phone 8.1. Microsoft call this “Action Center.” When you will tap at the top of the screen, it will display four basic quick settings including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other system settings. If you pull it down, you will be able to see the notifications.
The Verge also posted a clear view of Windows Phone’s upcoming action center with notifications and quick settings. Screenshot also confirms that battery percentage will also be there next to battery icon.
Previous leaked also revealed that separate volume control is also coming in next Windows Phone 8.1 Update.
This was the feature which Windows Phone users were missing. Android has a nice and easy to use Notification center that was later copied by iOS 7 major update. But Windows Phone users were missing this. For most of the tasks, they have to go to settings page and then set on/off. While notification center lets users perform these tasks quickly with two finger taps.
