Windows Phone 7.0 and 8.0 Devices Will Not Receive Push Notifications

Microsoft on Tuesday released an official statement in which the company noted that they are ending support for all push notifications for Windows 7.5 and Windows 8.0 devices, starting today.

MICROSOFT HAS WARNED remaining users of Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0 that they'll no longer receive push notifications. They started with killing support for Windows Phone 8.1 months ago and now they are banging the final nails to the coffin.

According to the company, this change will not affect the devices with 8.1 and 10 of course. This is understandably a push from Microsoft to the users to turn to the Windows Phone 8.1 and 10.

As WhatsApp developers have already announced nearly a year ago, WhatsApp Desktop App that has been, for some years now, released for Windows and Mac, it is now available for download from the Microsoft Store. The company says that since both of those platforms have reached the end of their support, these services are now able to be discontinued.

In October, Microsoft admitted that its Windows Phone line was pretty much totally dead after failing to attract app developers, and its market share plummeted from 0.8 per cent to 0.1 per cent by 2017.

The "Find my phone" feature will no longer locate your phone. Let us know in the comments! Once this happens: Your phone will no longer receive notifications. Microsoft's last and latest mobile operating system Windows 10 Mobile is still kicking, but the platform is already in maintenance mode, and the extended support for the operating system will come to an end in mid-2019. We hope Microsoft comes up with something fantastic the mobile hardware and software department.
