Live tile refresh every second or timer on live tile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. I am building an app for which I want to add the following feature.

    I want it to represent some kind of a countdown for what I need to refresh live tile every second. Is it possible to do so?

  • Your app would most likely be suspended when the start screen is visible. So if you want to update tile when idle you need to do it in a background task - and that runs up to every 15 min. 

    A local tile (like "now playing" in a music app) can be updated every few seconds when the app is running. But it is not possible to update every second - Windows controls how often tiles are updated, not you.
