WhatsApp for Windows Phone will stop working today

As Windows 10 Mobile has recently received its end support from Microsoft, and today marks the end of support for WhatsApp on the now-dead mobile operating system from Microsoft. As such, users are recommended to move to a platform where the app still receives support—either Android, iOS, or even certain KaiOS devices.

The Facebook-owned company pulled the app from the Microsoft Store back in July, preventing new users from downloading the app. Those who already had the app installed were able to use it until today.

Those who prefer to do most of their online tasks on the desktop can still download WhatsApp on the Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store, which will sync messages across iOS, Android, and other platforms, as well.

Although the Windows Phone efforts are now dead, Microsoft seems to be re-entering the mobile phone market with their upcoming Android-powered Surface Duo. The Redmond giant has also been supporting both iOS and Android with the development of apps such as Microsoft Edge and Office, and the latter operating system with Microsoft Launcher.

With the demise of Windows 10 Mobile, what has become your mobile ecosystem of choice? Feel free to leave a comment below.
