We are just one day away from Microsoft’s Build conference, but that hasn’t stopped rumors about the upcoming Redstone release of Windows 10 which centers on interactive cards coming to the Action Center and Cortana.
The new cards should offer a cleaner presentation over the static displays currently in use by the two services. Cortana and the Action Center will reportedly share a common set of actions that are accessible in multiple ways. As a result. the Action Center and Cortana will have the ability to communicate with other through these cards and provide a more personalized experience to the user.
Both first- and third-party applications will reportedly have access to this new Card UI feature for presenting information and actions. The report provides an example, saying that the Calendar app would have the ability to pin birthday reminder cards to the Action Center. Individual cards for meetings could also be pinned to the Action Center, giving the user a visual indication of what meeting occurs when, and if any of them clash with another scheduled appointment.
