just received an update that allows you to set your lockscreen photo as the background. The Lumia-exclusive feature displays time, missed calls, texts and emails, Facebook and Twitter notifications among others when the screen is off, negating the need for you to unlock the device to quickly check an incoming notification.
If the feature sounds familiar, it is because it was already available in Glance Background Beta
. It looks like Microsoft is integrating the functionality from that over to the official Glance Screen.
Also, if you want functionality that is above and beyond what Glance currently offers, there are utilities like DayGlance
that aim to do just that. As for the update, do note that you have to restart your phone for the changes to be visible.
How are you guys liking the update?
