Microsoft Engineer Hints At New Windows Core OS Notification System

Microsoft hasn’t been much vocal about the development of the Windows Core OS – its modular platform that forms the base of operating systems on various devices. Yet, curious humans have been able to get an idea by collecting all the information scattered here and there.

Recently, we came to know via a Linkedin profile that future versions of Xbox software will be based on WCOS. Also, it’s expected to include many open-source components.

Now, the profile of Microsoft Engineer Di Cao reveals that the company is working on a redesigned notifications system page (aka Action Center) for the Windows Core OS. This strengthens earlier rumors that an updated notification center for Windows is in the works.

Cao writes on her profile that she has been tasked with implementing an “in-context feature on the notification settings page on the Desktop and also in Windows Settings on WCOS.”

We can assume that these changes will be reflected in the upcoming Windows 10X which is also a flavor of WCOS. For the OS designed for foldable PCs, Microsoft would want to add the much-need improvements to the Action Center that enhance the user experience.

We can expect the new Action Center (or whatever it will be called) to have a more compact UI and refreshed toggle buttons for enabling Bluetooth, WiFi, and other features.

Speaking of Windows 10X, it will power the Surface Neo foldable that’s scheduled for an official release later this year. The OS is expected to arrive with a new Start Menu, macOS-style Dynamic wallpapers, and simpler setup process to name a few.
