Windows 10 will soon get Chaseable Live Tiles & Widget like notifications

In the final day of build 2016, Microsoft has announced Chaseable Live Tiles & Widget like notifications for windows 10 & windows 10 mobile. Both the new features are good inclusion to improve the user experience. Chek out in details below.

Chaseable Live Tiles

With the Chaseable Live Tiles, Microsoft is radically changing the Live Tile experience in Windows 10. Currently, in Windows 10, when you click on an info from a Live Tile, the live tile takes you to an app’s homepage. However, with the Chaseable Live Tiles, users will be able to directly navigate to a content or item that is shown on the title. For example, if you see an article in a live tile, click on the Chaseable Live Tile will directly open that article rather than opening up the homepage of that app.

This feature indeed looks pretty exciting, to say the least. Microsoft says this will be coming to Windows 10 PCs and Mobile devices.

Widget notifications

In todays, event Microsoft also introduced a new toast notification type for the Action Center in Windows 10. As you can see in the below image, the new notifications look a lot like Widgets (kind of like iOS and OS X widgets). For example, the Weather app will show notifications about the weather in the Action Center, and expanding it will give you more details on the Weather as you can see in the above image.

Microsoft is also making other improvements to notifications in the Action Center, including:

  • Features that requires no code change
  • Larger images in toast
  • App identity
  • New button style
  • Better discoverability
  • More current and relevant

It isn’t clear if these improvements will be coming to Windows 10 Mobile, but they do look very nice in the PC. What do you think? Discuss in the comment section below.
