Windows Phone is closer to its demise and it seems the company is getting rid of services that are consuming resources related to its operating system.
Recently, the company mentioned that Skype apps will no longer work on Windows Phone operating system after July 1st.
The company said in a statement,
We’ve noticed that you are, or previously, using Skype on Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, Messaging app for Windows 10 Mobile, Windows RT or a TV. We’re sorry to inform you that we will be permanently retiring these versions of Skype. As a result, after July 1, 2017, you will no longer be able to sign in to these versions of Skype.
So if you’re using Skype on Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, or the Messaging app for Windows 10 Mobile, you’ll be disappointed to know that the Redmond-based company will discontinue the service after July 1st. This means that if you want to use the service on your device, you will have to switch a device which supports it.
Is their any possible way Microsoft can resurrect the Windows Phone operating system?
