Windows 10 ?Achievement Unlocked? feature is pretty much the same as the one on Xbox

Last Friday, leaked details for the much awaited Windows 10 OS has been released to the public, as reported previously by neowin. This leak was from the build 10056 and it comes with different and numerous updates like new animations and updated apps. However, there is this one feature that was included on that leak that will give gamers, specifically Xbox or Xbox One console users, something out of the ordinary and something new and familiar.

Windows 10 feature that will attract gamers, more specifically, Xbox One console users

On a different report from neowin, one feature that was included on that leak is the ?achievement unlocked? that is also present on the consoles Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

In case you didn?t know what this kind of feature is, there are certain actions on that console that allow you to earn achievements for?downloading apps or just opening them. On the Windows 10 operating system however, based on that source, the concept is pretty much the same.

As revealed there, if you already have the build (10056), try opening the Insider Hub. Once you do that, a message will prompt stating ?Insider since October 2014. You just earned an achievement for joining the Windows Insider program. Thanks for making Windows better!?

It sure is exciting and enticing especially if you are familiar or a frequent user of Xbox. Sadly though, this is the only Achievement Unlocked message the author has received from the operating system and they don?t know if this is tied to your achievements on your Xbox profiles.

Many gaming platforms today also share the same feature like the one on Steam and on the PlayStation 4?though on the PS4, it is called ?trophies? instead of achievement.

Microsoft still hasn?t released any official statement yet regarding this kind of feature that we saw for the Windows 10 build 10056.
