One feature that was lacking in Windows Phone devices was the presence of the notification center, which both iOS and Android smartphones have been enjoying for a long time now. However, Microsoft has been working on its latest Windows Phone 8.1 build and soon it might get unveiled. The company is most likely going to unveil the updated Windows Phone OS at its upcoming BUILD conference, which kicks off on April 2, 2014.
However, this would likely be an important update coming from the heavy weight software giant. The latest leak pertaining to the same build has also been revealed via leaks. The latest screenshots, which have been leaked online, comes courtesy of the winphollowers and shows the a notification panel.
The screenshots are reportedly said to have come from an internal Microsoft email that contained information on the Windows Phone 8.1 update. The new Windows Phone 8.1 notification area could be called as the "Action Center."
Moreover, inside the Action Center you can also see quick toggles for features like Driving Mode and Wi-Fi. Also the usual indicators for signal strength, battery and time, which now also show the network, battery percentage and date directly can be seen in the same panel.
There is also a "Clear All" button that would likely clear any notifications that a user had in the Action Center which can be seen in the Android devices. The "All Settings" button which would take the users to the Windows Phone's Settings menu has also been involved in this update.
According to the PhoneDog report, the Action Center also comes with a unique feature that will be seen when the user is in a full-screen mode. When the user swipes down across the screen, while inside of a full-screen app, it's reportedly said that a small blue tab will show up and allow the user to pull on it, ensuring that the Action Center is displayed only when it's actually wanted.
