Windows 9 notification centre details revealed
The Windows 9 notification centre is reportedly available on some builds of the OS
The notification centre set to be a part of Windows 9 is reportedly present on some builds of the operating system, with features and design details leading to speculation.
The report comes from NeoWin, who claim the feature is up and working on some later builds of Windows 9.
According to the site, the notification centre appears and operates as expected, hosting alerts in much the same way as that on the Windows Phone.
It is reportedly set to launch from the system tray, with notifications grouped according to which app they come from. The alerts appear in a fixed-size window that pops up in the centre of the screen, with a white background and sleek design.
Users will either be able to clear notifications individually, or with a single click if preferred, report tabtec. Advanced options and specifications are nonexistent as it stands, with the feature currently appearing to be very basic. This will likely evolve in time.
This is an update to Windows Threshold that will likely prove popular, and our first real look at it will probably come as part of the Technical Preview for the OS following Microsoft's press event on 30 September.
Last week, Microsoft China accidently leaked a Windows 9 announcement, with many of the rumoured details of the OS apparently confirmed. This includes the return of the start menu and the official name for the next generation of Windows.
Since then, however, it has been speculated that Windows 9 will drop the number and simply go by the name Windows'.
