Some of the features shown during the demo include a new Action Center that syncs with the PC version of Windows 10, a revised app list, a revamped settings page and more. Microsoft operating systems VP Joe Belfiore showed that Windows 10 on smartphones will show recently installed apps at the top of the app list.
The new Action Center will dismiss single items, and it will have some expanding quick settings. Users can pull it down for a quick reply from notifications. The virtual keyboard can pull off to one side in Windows 10 and move around. It will also feature speech dictation from wherever you can type and it can recognize proper names, hashtags and more.
IP messaging will integrate into Windows 10 Messaging hub for smartphones, similar to like Skype, but this feature is not a actual demo at the moment. Windows 10 for smartphones will become available for Windows Insider members "in a little while" but not today.
Stay tuned as we will continue to post information from the Windows 10 press event. To see it all roll in live be sure to join us in the liveblog!
