It's not certain that double-height Live tiles will make it to Windows 10 for phones, Microsoft bigwig says
The Technical Preview of Windows 10 for phones is already out for some users, showcasing the majority of features that might make it to the official release of the OS later on. As Windows fans probably know, among the numerous novelties of the upcoming platform are the double-height Live tiles, which are also a part of the Technical Preview.

Unfortunately, it's not completely sure that these will arrive alongside the full-fledged Windows 10 for phones later this year. A Microsoft exec, namely Gabriel Aul, the manager behind Windows Insiders program, revealed in a recent tweet that said that the new types of Live tiles are still being tested and might or might not make it to the full-fledged release.

It would've been nice on bigger screen phones like 1520. Anyway will interactive tiles comes with WP10? Any news on that?

What I really want is tiles that span all three space. That would be nice for designing.

I don't see why it's so difficult to put in live tiles in 2015

Well become an assembly/c/C++ coder and let us know the easyness of it. Its more about support/user experience than simply just saying it cant be done.

Long tiles are good... I won't use them... but is always ok to have options
