Microsoft Explains Why Windows Phone Died Despite Efforts

Microsoft officially confirmed that the Windows Phone platform is long gone, dead and there is no way to make another mobile operating system. Instead, they are going to focus on making Windows 10 on PC connect easily with both iOS and Android smartphones.

A series of tweets by Joe Belfiore confirmed that they tried their best and despite all their efforts, Windows Phone died. It is not only because of Microsoft but also the fact that developers didn’t support it which in turn pushed users out of the context.

“We tried by giving a lot of incentives to app developers. We even paid money to many of them but they wouldn’t respond. The user volume was low, they said and when apps were missing users were not interested to adopt it,” he tweeted.

The exact reason still remains a mystery but Microsoft confirmed that they will continue to fix bugs, make old phones run properly and roll out security updates. However, no new Windows Phone hardware will get launched and all major apps may stop rolling out newer versions due to the further smaller user base at present.
