Besides the Modern apps, the redesigned GUI and many other things, Windows 8 also comes with what is called “live tiles” displayed right on the Start Screen.

Designed to show a preview of the installed apps, the live tiles can change their appearance according to the information they provide, which means that you can see the weather forecast, the played song or email messages without actually opening the apps.

Since live tiles are holding such a critical role for Windows 8’s long-term success, the Norwegian branch of Microsoft has created a video to showcase the way they could influence your life.

Microsoft also provides more information on the live tiles, so if you wish to learn more about this feature, click here.
