Microsoft wants your ideas to improve Windows 10 gaming

It remains to be seen how this will affect any remaining Windows 10 or UWP games now available to Windows Phone users, but we can guess that support from third party will be fairly slim if there's no first-party support to back it up.

Microsoft is planning to put its future mobile app development efforts behind the iOS and Android platforms, going forward.

Nokia had gone from market leader to also-ran since it had announced plans to adopt Windows Phone 7 back in February 2011 - eight months before the first Windows Phone device, the Nokia Lumia 800, appeared.

Microsoft previously ended Windows Phone 8.1 support on July 11th 2017, so the end of Windows 10 Mobile support is not unexpected. On the FAQ page on the website of the company, the staff suggested the users to a new device powered with the iOS or Android operating system.

"Windows 10 Mobile failed for numerous reasons", Ben Wood, an analyst at CCS Insight tells TechRadar Pro.

Later that year, Belfiore announced that all development on Windows 10 Mobile had ceased.


Microsoft has confirmed that it will stop supporting Windows 10 Mobile later this year, the company will stop support the OS on thw 10th of December 2019.

Windows Phone has always been dead, and now Microsoft has officially confirmed it.

While former CEO Steve Ballmer seemed committed to catching the last boat when it came to mobile - most notably through the acquisition of Nokia - current chief executive Satya Nadella is comfortable with having missed the boat entirely.

It's important that you upgrade to a modern operating system such as Windows 10, which can provide the latest security updates to help keep you and your data safer.

Microsoft is advising individuals and organizations still using Windows Phone devices running Windows 10 Mobile to switch to devices running Apple's iOS or Google's Android mobile OSes instead. Compare the percentage with Android at 74.92% and iOS at 22.2%.

When it comes to using VR in the classroom, Microsoft will make it simpler to boost students' reading speed and comprehension with the help of the Immersive Reader which is now supported on its Windows virtual reality headsets.
