Microsoft is finally done with Windows Phone, it's now officially dead

11 Octubre 2017, 02:15 | Bibiana Flor

The mobile OS we don't often hear much about though is Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile. Instead, Microsoft announced a new version of Windows 10 codenamed Andromeda aka Windows Core OS that works cross-platform, on any device type or architecture. Not to forget, Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft himself already switched to Android even though the phone that he used might carry plenty of Microsoft services in it.

If you own a phone running Windows 10 mobile, ignore the headlines that tell you to upgrade your phone immediately. Even so, the volume remained too low for most companies to invest in.

The head of Microsoft's Windows division says that Windows 10 mobile is not going to be a focus for the company anymore as the number of users is too less for the companies to invest.

He said that while Microsoft would support the "many companies" that had adopted the platform, he had switched to Android for the diversity of its apps and hardware. While the company failed to keep up with Android and iOS, it also had no specific hardware strategy, or so it appeared.

Joe Belfiore, a Microsoft vice-president and long-time Windows Phone evangelist, broke the news in a series of tweets. They tried "VERY HARD" to incentivize the app developers. Microsoft has cut the funding as much as it can, and only tries to keep the current customers, mostly business customers, safe from hackers and other security problems. It marks the end of Microsoft trying to enter the smartphone market. He further states that he has shifted the platform for better usability and asked the users to make a call on which to use.

Belfiore posted on his Twitter account that the "Building new features'and new 'hw aren't the focus" where hw denotes to hardware.

Phones affected by the withdrawal include the Microsoft Lumia 640, 640 XL and the Lumia 535.

In a second tweet, Belfiore said the platform's downfall was in part due to developers being uninterested to creating apps for it, because there were so few users.
