Microsoft To-Do Windows 10 app gets Live Tiles support with new Insider update

Microsoft has started testing Live Tile support for its To-Do Windows 10 app today. If you’re a Windows Insider on the Fast or Skip Ahead Ring, you can download the latest version (1.40.1809.14001) from the Microsoft Store and check out the new Live Tile on your Start screen.

Be aware that the Live Tile for Microsoft To-Do will only display tasks that you’ve added to “My Day.” If you opt for the “Large” square Live Tile, you’ll be able to see up to seven tasks, compared to just three for the Medium and Wide Live Tiles. Once you’ve completed all tasks added to My Day, the Live Tile will also display a congratulations message.

Overall, this is a pretty useful update for the task manager app, especially if you’re used to seeing your upcoming appointments on the Outlook Calendar app. If you’re not a Windows Insider, you should get this new version over the next few weeks.
