Windows 10 Mobile to ship with Large Tiles support

People Hub

If your remember Windows 10 Mobile‘s earlier preview builds supported some new Tile Sizes including the “Large Tile”, which is like Four small tiles put together. Later these tile sizes were depreciated from the newer builds and if you check the latest builds like Build 10536.1004, you won’ be able to resize tiles to “Large size”. But if the official documentation has to be taken into account it seems, we will see Large Size Tiles option available along with other three commonly used Tile Sizes.

Wide Tiles

While this is not a must have feature, but many would like such a tile size for specific apps like Photos, Music and others. Microsoft is set to announce Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 550 during October 6 event and one can also expect more news about Windows 10 Mobile availability on this date.

    Large Tile is needed for the future ‘Interactive Live Tiles’. Like Music or Email Tile, you can work with them directly without opening the apps. Is the ‘Interactive Live Tiles’ coming?

      It’s coming, but most probably not this year.

    I like seeing more on a Live Tile.
    Tweets, txt-msg, fb, e-mail. Etc

      Yes, Mobile. Of course we want to see those stuff too, but talking about large live tiles, I would really like to see things like image, album cover, clock, weather because it will look awesome on the start screen.
