The end is near for Windows 10 Mobile. We definitely realized that specialized support for the mobile operating system would end on December tenth, 2019 (that’s right, that is tomorrow). Presently, we have an official end-of-life date for the Windows 10 Mobile Office applications, as well: January twelfth, 2021. Starting there onwards, the much-cherished programming suite – including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote – won’t get any bug fixes, security updates and general specialized help. The applications will in any case work, Microsoft affirmed, however, you won’t have the option to introduce them on any new gadgets.
“Because of the lack of security updates, we strongly recommend that if you wish to use Office on a phone you transition to the latest Microsoft Office apps on an iOS or Android phone,” Bill Doll, senior product marketing manager for Office apps strategy at Microsoft urged.
The declaration is certifiably not a colossal astonishment. Windows 10 Mobile was a business flop and it’s been a very long time since Microsoft discharged another Lumia cell phone. The stage is gradually being retired and that, definitely, incorporates any Microsoft-made applications. In case despite everything you’re sticking to a Lumia 950, however, you have one more year-or-so to jab around the Office applications and envision what could have been. Actually, we’re prepared to proceed onward and grasp Microsoft’s dual-screen, Android-fueled mobile future. We’ll miss a portion of the stage’s crazier thoughts, similar to Continuum – an idea Samsung is keeping alive – however next to no else. Farewell, old companion.
