We already know that Microsoft will introduce a re-designed Action Center for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile with the Anniversary Update that’s more functional and user-friendly. However, the company reportedly is already working on a new design for the Action Center for Windows 10 Mobile that should be introduced in some of the future updates.
MSPU claims it received a message from a Microsoft source containing future plans for the Action Center on Windows 10 Mobile and the elements being currently tested internally. Images show a new, redesigned Action Center separated into a few sections instead just having Quick Actions.
Action Center is now divided into ‘Actions’ and ‘Toggles’ and features a brightness-adjusting slider underneath. Actions are round buttons that look like Android or iOS elements that can be used to open a certain app or perform a certain action. The camera, notes, connect and all settings buttons are currently displayed in the picture.
While Toggles look like old Quick Actions, they still retain their functionality and toggle some options on/off (WiFi, Bluetooth, flashlight, etc.). And of course, there’s a slider for adjusting brightness, just like on the majority of non-Windows 10 Mobile devices.
We still don’t know if users will be able to change Action and Toggle buttons in the Windows 10 Mobile Action Center, but since Microsoft constantly improves the flexibility of the OS, we believe users will be able to make at least some changes.
Since these changes probably won’t come with the Anniversary Update on August 2nd, there’s a big chance Microsoft will make some major changes to this design before it sees a release. The company will probably roll it out to Windows Insiders, so we’ll know more about the possible revamped Action Center in the future.
Until then, tell us what do you think about this design for the Windows 10 Mobile Action Center — would you change anything?
