Coming not just to Windows 10 PCs but to Windows 10 Mobile, as well as Android, it will sync all devices, so dismissing a notification on your PC -- whether for a text or something else -- will also dismiss it on your phone. You can do the inverse too on Android, either the old-fashioned way or through the Cortana app -- no Windows 10 Mobile handset required.

Other features include widget and tile support, so 'information cards' for weather and such can be displayed in the new Center.

The new digs are expected to launch with the Anniversary Update launching this summer for PCs and mobile.
