Here at Wind8Apps (which will be rebranded into wind10apps and later on into windapps, btw), we have started covering Windows 10 more agressively, as per the suggestion of our readers. Now we take a look at the recently released Action Center feature in Windows 10.
After having a look at the Battery Saver and new DataSense features in the upcoming Windows 10, it’s time to analyze the recently unveiled Action Center, as well. What you’re seeing above is a previe of the Action Center in work. Along with many other features, Microsoft ‘borrowed’ it from Windows Phone over to the PC.
However, this preview version focused on enabling basic notifications for now, but quick actions and a cleaner user interface will come later. Still, it’s enough to understand how this will work and how will we interact with it.
Users will get notifications from the Windows system and apps, from new emails and IMs, Facebook posts and much more. This is one of the most awaited features and I’m telling you – it’s here to stay.
The reason why I think this feature is a really smart move from Microsoft is because it will save users a lot of time – you will get in a central location the resumed activity of your Windows Store, calls, Skype messages and emails. Almost everybody else has a similar functionality and it’s nice to see Microsoft do the same.
Personally, I hope Windows 10 will come with some awesome features like the ones found in Mac OS X’s Yosemite, especially Continuity, which allows users to resume the work on their iPhone, iPad and also to take calls on their desktop device.
