Facebook Will Kill Its Apps for Windows Phones Beginning 30 April

Facebook is ending support for Windows phone OS, including its other apps like Messenger and Instagram, apart from the original Facebook app, reported Engadget.

According to a company spokesperson, Facebook will end the support of its apps for Windows phones beginning 30 April.

Facebook’s decision comes three years after Microsoft discontinued Windows phones in 2016. The company will halt security and feature updates later this year.

Some might wonder why people are still using Windows phones in 2019, well the answer probably is the lack of trust shown by some in Google and Apple when it comes to data security. Camera optimisation in Windows phones might be another reason.
