Microsoft to End Support for Windows 10 Mobile This Year

Microsoft CEO giving up on Cortana? Wants it as a 'skill' in Google Assistant

Microsoft is widely known across the world for its operating system it manages to install even on your gaming console. However, until that happens, one can at least be sure of not seeing any Microsoft-branded smart speaker. Also, Windows Phones were often a little lower down the price range, so here's hoping the price helps too. Potentially, we could see some unique apps for both iOS and Android that Apple and Android developers haven't made yet.

All the Windows Phone users would be definitely disappointed after hearing that Microsoft has officially announced to stop support for Windows Phone.

"Windows 10 Mobile, version 1709 (released October 2017) is the last release of Windows 10 Mobile and Microsoft will end support on December 10, 2019", Microsoft explains on its recently updated support page.

The FAQ explicitly states that Windows 10 Mobile customers should "move to a supported Android or iOS device" by December 10, 2019.

For Windows 10 Mobile users now looking to make the switch to Android or iOS devices, we'd recommend the OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy S9, or Google Pixel 3 for Android phones. However, we are talking about the mobile version of the OS, which was formally closed in 2017, but so far for smartphones based on it released small updates to enhance security. Later, Microsoft took over and continued the production of the Lumia from Nokia. In the wake of the problems, Microsoft introduced a way for those testing early builds of the OS under the Windows Insider Program to flag the severity of bugs and committed to "improve our ability to prevent issues". "But building new features/hw aren't the focus".

Microsoft says it best. Introduction of Windows 8 didn't create much hype.

The feature update, also known as version 1809, has had a pretty torrid time since it was revealed in October previous year, with the rollout halted on October 6th, after a number of PCs were hit by a file-wiping bug. That's why Microsoft has recommended that its users migrate to Android or iOS. The prior head of Window Phone Mr Terry Myerson said a little about its failure in March of a year ago.

Starting with the next big Windows 10 system update, codenamed 19H1, the operating system will allocate a portion of your PC's hard drive as reserved storage for important system updates and temporary files (periodically deleting them as necessary).

Customers were informed of the change by an email from Facebook. And you should also be able to use [Cortana] on Google Assistant. In other words, there aren't going to be any more updates, and only a few phone models will even be supported until that final date. However, the company is now pushing its first wave of the update to all remaining users who have otherwise avoided upgrading.
