Recently it was reported that Microsoft is readying the technology preview of Windows 9 which the company is expected to release next month. Over the past few weeks certain details about the upcoming iteration of Windows have leaked online, but its imperative to note that there has been no confirmation from Redmond, so its possible that last minute changes might be made. A new report published today claims that interactive Live Tiles are also on the cards for Windows 9 aka Threshold.

This isn’t the first time that interactive Live Tiles have come into the picture. Microsoft has worked on this feature in the past as part of a research effort but it never made it to Windows. According to WinBeta, this feature will be included in Windows 9. A notification center is also claimed to be onboard.

The scribe does not that both of these features won’t be included in the technology preview that is expected to be released next month. However they’re both said to be locked in for the final version of Windows 9, which might be released in April 2015.

Word on the street is that Microsoft will update the Windows 9 technology preview once or twice a month to add new features so we might get a clearer picture of the next Windows iteration as the time progresses. Some of the other features that it is expected to bring include virtual desktopsrevamped Charms bar, mini Start Menu and even integration of Cortana.
