Windows Phone 8.1 will support up to 20 notifications per app in Action Center

We know that Windows Phone 8.1 will feature an "Action Center," bringing a centralized notification center to Microsoft's mobile operating system. Now, it has been revealed that an application will be allowed to show up to 20 notifications in the "Action Center" among other things.

So far we have seen numerous screenshots and video leaks of the upcoming update to Windows Phone, but now a report from WPCentral has revealed the functionality specific to the Action Center found out through various APIs.

The report mentions that users will be able to see up to 20 notifications from a single app. Persistent notifications can be visible for up to 7 days. A user can choose to tap to open the app which sends the notification, dismiss a single notification, or a group of notifications. Developers on the other hand will be provided with the ability to send, remove, replace, group or tag the notifications. They can set expiry periods for the notifications and use ghost notifications for testing.

A video of the "Action Center" in action leaked last month, which showed off some of the functionality mentioned above and it seems by the time Microsoft makes the update official at BUILD 2014 in April we would have most of the information about it already.
