Windows Phone 8.1 'Action Centre' showcased in purported SDK video

The leaks for the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 OS update keep coming, and this time appear in the form of a video. A video on YouTube clears the air on the proposed 'Action Centre' which will be included in Windows Phone 8.1.

The video clearly shows that 'Action Centre', also known as the notification centre for Windows Phone 8.1, can be accessed by a simple drop down swipe gesture like seen in Android and iOS OSes. One can see easy access toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Flight Mode and Rotation-Lock along with a quick access button to the Settings page.

The video further shows the user accessing the WP8.1 Action Centre settings which allow the user to add additional quick access buttons, such as Brightness, Camera, Internet Sharing, Location, Project my screen, VPN and more.

It has been also shown in the purported Windows Phone 8.1 walkthrough video that for each option, for instance Messaging, one can activate/deactivate the notification alerts along with the options for 'Showing Notifications Banners' and Notification sounds.

After the recent leaks regarding common universal apps for Windows and Windows Phone attributed to information accompanying the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK files, the latest iteration of the Microsoft's mobile operating system is now said to arrive sometime between July and August 2014.

The tentative launch window was reported by a Chinese publication, which claims the updates will be released between July and August of this year.
