Photos live tile stops updating after approx 30 seconds and Cortana's live tile stops updating after approx 25 seconds. I have to touch my screen to see them alive again. Is there a duration for live tiles?

  • It is most likely app specific. What is your screen time out duration? – karancan Jun 10 '14 at 14:50
  • Also, why does the duration matter? – Neil Turner Jun 10 '14 at 15:36
  • Screen timeout is 5 minutes – Vivek Parekh Jun 10 '14 at 18:29

The live tile animations stop after 25 seconds of inactivity - this cuts down on battery usage, and doesn't appear to be configurable.
