Live tile updates

Updated: August 27, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1

On the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 Start screen, tiles are the primary representation of an app. Users start their apps through those tiles, and the tiles can display new, relevant, and tailored content to the users. You can keep tiles alive with activity and draw users back into your app repeatedly. You can display information about Premium services, or any important information that you want to bring to users’ attention.
