First Look: Window's 8.1 Notification Center [Video]

Windows Phone users have been waiting a long time to be able to see all their notifications in one place. Over the past few months there have been multiple reports that a notification center will launch with Windows Phone 8.1.


Today, Unleash the Phones leaked a video that apparently shows the reported notification center in action, and it will be called Action Centre.

The feature will apparently pack many of the same capabilities that iOS and Android users have been enjoying for quite a while. Users will get four quick shortcut buttons to toggle settings like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, screen brightness, etc. The best part is that the four quick toggle buttons are completely customizable giving users access to the controls that they want.

Reports have also rumoured that 8.1 will allow users to switch Wi-Fi off for a set amount of time, after which it will turn back on.
