Since Microsoft released its new Windows 8.1 Preview more and more features and tweaks to the new operating system are coming to light and a new one seems to have removed most of the Facebook and Flickr Photo integration that was installed in the original version of the Windows 8 operating system.
Microsoft explained why the Facebook and Flickr Photo integration has been removed from their Windows 8.1 Preview via a Microsoft’s community forum post. Explaining that both Facebook and Flickr users should now use the specific applications created by the companies within Windows 8.1, saying:
“Now there are many apps in the store that offer ways to view photos on other services,”-“We’re confident Facebook will offer great ways to view and engage socially with photos on Facebook. We welcome Flickr to do the same.”
Initial feedback from Windows 8.1 Preview users seems to be of disappointment with the loss of the application are combined to services into one application. However the people app in Windows 8.1 will continue to include the usual Facebook integration. As more information comes to light on the changes within the latest Windows 8.1 Preview we will keep you updated as always.
