After demonstrating Apple’s Siri-like personal assistant Cortana for Windows Phone, the most-requested feature Action Center has been leaked again in a video as well as a screenshot.

The screenshot from an internal Microsoft PowerPoint presentation is leaked by reputable leaker @AngelWZR, detailing some new functions of Action Center in Windows Phone 8.1.

As per leaked info, Action Center will allow 20 alerts per app for 7 days, and the user will be able to tap a notification and remove a notification or a group of notifications as well as all notifications.


About a month ago, Microsoft released a preview version of SDK for Windows Phone 8.1 that reveals new Action Center APIs. A new set of APIs will allow developers to set different notifications; replace a notification with a new one; set their maturity, and send Ghost Toast.

The Action Center will be accessible by a swipe from top to bottom, and show four small tiles for many quick actions as turn on/off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Internet sharing, screen rotation, airplane mode etc.

In addition, there’re some more interesting details about the future of Windows Phone OS. Microsoft will launch the Windows Phone 8.1 early next month during the annual BUILD developer conference, but the Redmond developers have already started work on the next Windows Phone iteration, apparently Windows Phone 8.5.


The SDK reveals SecondaryTileVisualElements.Square70x70Logo is obsolete or may be altered or unavailable for release after Windows Phone 8.5. Of course, no information is yet available about the future release than Windows Phone 8.1 aka Blue.
