Microsoft will stop offering Office Lens for Windows apps.

Microsoft released Windows 10’s Office Lens app back in 2014. But the app appears to be coming to an end, with Microsoft announcing it will be scrapped. On the app’s support page, Microsoft wrote that some cloud-based services in Office Lens for Windows, such as saving your pictures to OneDrive, OneNote, Word, PowerPoint, or PDF, will become unavailable after December 31, 2020. You can continue to use other features of the app installed on your device.

In addition, as of January 1, 2021, Windows 10 Office Lens will no longer be available for download from the Microsoft Store.

To continue to enjoy all the features of Office Lens, it is recommended to download and use the latest version of Office Lens for iOS or Office Lens for Android on your mobile device.

As a result, Microsoft doesn’t seem to be planning to deactivation the utility entirely, even though most of its features are built into iOS and Android’s OneDrive app.

So stop notifications can be seen as a legacy of the app in Windows Phone development, and Microsoft no longer offers it on a mobile platform that is out of support, just like many other UWP apps.
