Device Hub will be replaced by Gadgets on Windows 10 Mobile in coming builds

Device Hub

It seems in a future Windows 10 Mobile build, we will get one new app known as “Gadgets”. This app will replace the “Device Hub” app on Lumia devices running Windows Phone 8.1. The official FAQs that have earlier revealed VoLTE and VoWiFi support on Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL also have details for the Gadgets app.

Device Hub has evolved into Gadgets and can be found in the main list of apps.

Microsoft Gadgets help you get the most out of your smart accessories.

Some key features:

  • Smart triggers – Launch a particular app when you connect an accessory.  For example, start the music player when you connect your headphones or start HERE Drive when you get in your car.
  • Launch pad – For each accessory, you can specify a list of apps which will appear when it’s connected.
  • Locate a misplaced accessory. Gadgets track where and when you last connected an accessory.
  • Support for Microsoft Display Dock and other accessory firmware updates.
  • Invitation to charge – Wireless charging plate will blink when phone battery is low.
