Windows Phone 8.1 Action Center video shows how notifications work
Ready for your daily dose of those Windows Phone 8.1 leaks we’ve been enjoying ever so much over the course of the last week or so? Yesterday we took a look at a few dozens icons pulled from the platform’s SDK, revealing some of what Cortana will be able to do. Today, though, we’re revisiting an earlier leak, as a new video arrives to give us a better look at how Windows Phone 8.1 will handle notifications.
We already shared with you a leak detailing the WP8.1 Action Center, as this notification center will be formally called. Back then we had some screenshots and a brief description, but in the spirit of actions (no pun intended) speaking louder than words, a video of the Action Center is now available to fill us in on its operation.
It’s just a brief look, but we get to see the key components here: options to set up “quick action” toggles (your choice of four), as well as those letting you specify which types of notifications you want to see, if you also want audio alerts, and how your phone being locked should change notification behavior. And sure enough, the swipe-from-top mechanic we expected from that last leak is now confirmed.
