Universal dismiss for Notifications on Windows 10 PCs and Phones
Notification mirroring and universal dismiss coming soon
Microsoft has demonstrated many interesting features to app developers during the BUILD 2016 conference. Some the best new things we saw are connected to the Action Center and the app notifications.
Microsoft now allows developers to modify their apps and let them sync information on the cloud. All connected devices, including Windows PCs, Windows Phones and Android phones, that use the same Microsoft account will be able to receive the notification from the app via Cortana – the feature is called notification mirroring. Sometime later, the feature will be integrated deeper into the Windows platform, so even users in countries where Cortana is not available will be able to see and dismiss notifications on all their devices.
Universal Dismiss will work only on Windows 10 platform. If the notification is dismissed on one device, it will automatically disappear on all connected devices.
Windows 10 Anniversary update, scheduled for mid-2016, aims to further integrate PC and mobile. We already reported about the possibility of making and receiving phone calls on a Windows 10 PC. Windows Insiders may be able to test some of the new features very soon on their Insider PCs and phones.
