Enable badge notifications on Lock screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been looking at the Advanced Tiles Sample... the tile and badge notifications work, but I can't see anything new on the Lock screen. I've made sure lock screen notifications are enabled in the manifest. When I try to add the app under Personalize > Lock screen notifications in the Control Panel, I get these messages:

    Currently, there are no apps that can be set as badges on your Lock screen.

    Currently, there are no apps that can show detailed status on your Lock screen.


    I remember seeing badge notifications on the lock screen in presentations at BUILD, so obviously it's working for some apps. What needs to be done to enable lock screen notifications for others (such as the Advanced Tiles Sample)? Is there some installation or app registration process I'm missing?
