Microsoft Lumia 650 Now Available in the USA for Only $199

This new feature will hopefully arrive for the stable version of Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update.

In fact, it's the behind-the-scenes activity that the Windows maker wishes to focus on intensely at the moment even if that means not much of a substantial development on the ground with Windows Phone, revealed Microsoft's Windows and Devices head Terry Myerson at the Build 2016 event.

It seems that with less that 2 per cent of smartphone users owning Windows phones and the recent popularity of VR devices has swung Microsoft's attention away from the Windows 10 mobile platform.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 comes with some great features but at the same time it also has its downsides. Other new features of the Action Center announced by Microsoft include the arrival of tiles and widgets that will display information like weather.

It should be noted that developers will have to enable the dismiss feature in their apps.

The release date of this update hasn't been confirmed yet, but it should most probably occur during July this year.

With Microsoft managing to sell just over 5.8 million Windows phones compared to nearly 300 million Android smartphones and over 46 million iPhones in the third quarter of 2015, it seems Microsoft has temporarily given up any intention of investing heavily on Windows 10 phones until next year. "If you wanted to reach a lot of phone customers, Windows Phone isn't the way to do it", he said. Initially, the service will work through Microsoft's Cortana app - but later on, it will worth "through the OS", according to Windows Central. However, over the years, things looked like they were slowing down for Microsoft Corporation, as the Windows Phone and the Windows 10 Mobile OS division came down to stagnating standstills.
