Yesterday we heard that Microosft has stopped selling Windows Phone apps and now the company has announced that it is killing off some apps.
The Windows Phone apps that are being retired are Microsoft Teams, Yammer and Skype for Business. These applications will no longer be available from the 20th of May 2018. You can see what Microsoft has to say about this below.
“Effective May 20, 2018, the Windows Phone apps for Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, and Yammer will be retired. Starting on that date, these apps will no longer be available for download from Microsoft Store, and Microsoft will no longer support them.
While Microsoft continues to support Windows 10 Mobile, we are not focused on building new features for the system. We will continue to invest in the Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, and Yammer mobile apps for iOS and Android, and also in desktop apps for Windows and Mac.”
