Over the last few weeks the Me tile on our Windows Phones is showing a strange behavior.
As usual, we get notified in the way you can see above. What are we doing then? Right, we are going into the “notification” tab and check what´s going on.
Normally, the notification on the tile are going away and we will see our profile image switching around. But this does not work anymore. The notifications are still remaining.
I have tested this on three devices with three different Live-IDs:
- HTC Titan, OS version .8107
- HTC Radar, OS version .8107
- Nokia Lumia 800, OS version .8107
All three devices have regional settings for Germany.
Only if we get another notification and read them, the notification goes away. But here is the next strangeness: only Twitter mentions can clear up Twitter notifications, and only Facebook news can clear up Facebook notifications.
Re-adding the accounts does not solve this problem.
Maybe it has to do something with the recent switch from Live-ID to Microsoft-ID since the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was released. I will track this and keep you informed.
Did you experience the same issues on your Windows Phone´s Me tile? If so, please leave a comment below with your phone model, your OS version and your region. I will shot this article at the Windows Phone Support team, as I did before with the article about tweets not showing up on Twitter..
Windows Phone Support has looked into the problem. It seems the problem is solved for the moment. I tried also to get mor information, but sadly the support team does not share a lot of information. I will track this over the next few days and keep you informed.
If you still have this issues, I recommend you to contact @WinPhoneSupport. Alternatively leave a comment below, I will shot them a message.
