Microsoft Store to drop support for Windows 10 Mobile soon

04 May 2019 4

Tech giant Microsoft recently asked the Windows Mobile users to switch to Android and iOS OS after the company officially stopped working on the Windows phones platform back in 2017. This meant, that third-party developers stopped showing interest in Windows Phone development and the OS is almost dead now. IN the recent update in this regard, the company has dropped the support for Windows Mobile from Microsoft Store which gives another final blow to the junked OS.

As noticed by an app researcher, the Microsoft Store package was explored from the core of it in the Microsoft Store version 11904.1001.1. gets a newly updated App Manifest file. The file shares how the latest Microsoft Store only supports Windows 10 build 16299 or up which clearly means that Windows 10 Mobile users won’t be able to use Microsoft anymore, as they’re yet stuck on build 15254.

This doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to use Microsoft Store app anymore and install the apps available there, it's about not being able to update the store app its self which would be a hindrance, in the long run, in case any new features are rolled out to Microsoft Store app.

What do you think about this? Have you switched over to iOS or Android yet? Let us know in the comment section below.
