The era of Windows phone is gradually coming to an end, very bad news for windows phone users. Microsoft’s VP Joe Belfiore took to his twitter handle, saying that “we know that Windows 10 Mobile is also slowly but steadily heading to the product graveyard of Microsoft.”
However, it doesn’t mean that your windows device will cease operating, Microsoft VP, responsible for the mobile OS said that Microsoft will keep supporting the platform with bug fixes, but no new features or hardware will be introduced.
REASON FOR THE DECISION
Microsoft V.P Joe Belfiore explains why He says that developers never really backed the platform and Microsoft could not find partners to work with. Along with the low number of users, (it seems most Windows users ported to Android and iOS platform).
I think this is one of the reason why Microsoft decided to open up its Edge browser exclusive to Windows alone to other platform (Android and iOS). Indeed this is really bad news for windows phone lovers.
