Microsoft starts auto-update of Windows 10 1809 three months late

Microsoft CEO giving up on Cortana? Wants it as a 'skill' in Google Assistant

With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device, says Microsoft.

Microsoft previously ended Windows Phone 8.1 support on July 11th 2017, so the end of Windows 10 Mobile support is not unexpected.

Just a couple months earlier, the NYPD swapped out over 36,000 Windows Phones for iPhones after it seemed likely that the Windows Mobile platform would be phased out eventually.

Why is Microsoft ending support for Windows 10 Mobile? The company even encouraged its users to switch to a supported Android or iOS device whenever possible.

Microsoft is ok with third-party apps, which provide support for Windows 10 mobile platform, as they said, "Third parties or paid support programs may provide ongoing support, but it is important to recognize that Microsoft support will not publicly provide updates or patches for Windows 10 Mobile".

"Under “What should Windows 10 Mobile customers do now?” Microsoft recommends that Windows Phone users “move to a supported Android or iOS device".

When the company ends support in December, some features like device backups for settings, along with some apps, will continue until March 10th, 2020.

Not all devices will be supported through the end date, either.

According to both CNBC and Thurrott, Microsoft has basically killed Windows 10 Mobile. This comes from Microsoft itself on a new FAQ page surrounding the end-of-life of Windows 10 Mobile.

Microsoft's Xbox division runs regular "idea drives" to gather feedback on various features and let the community vote on which changes are most important.

In addition to this, the company is also focusing on revamping the "Start" function reliability and on adding advanced font management options as part of the April update for Windows 10.

We often talk about Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant in the same breath as Alexa and Google Assistant, but Microsoft doesn't think that's right.

If you somehow find yourself still using a Windows 10 mobile device, expect more disappointment.

It's nearly here. The end of Windows on phones. If you belong to the Windows Phone clan, this news might be disturbing. When it was launched in 2015 with Windows 10, the plan for Cortana was for Windows users to become locked into an emerging AI ecosystem. Sadly this was also a big failure for them, and Microsoft finally wrote down it is 7.6 billion dollar Nokia purchase.

Microsoft has a problem with marketing Windows 10 updates.
