As it moves on December 11, 2019, Microsoft has just ended its support for the Windows 10 Mobile operating system, with the last release of the v1709 in October 2017. This means that this mobile operating system will not receive any security and feature updates in the future. While users will still be able to continue using Windows 10 Mobile, major apps, including WhatsApp, will stop working in a few weeks.
This once high hopes of the “world’s third largest mobile phone system”, finally came to its own end. At the same time, Windows 10 mobile apps will stop working (and infact, many have been withdrawn), especially from Microsoft’s official Office Suite, which ends its lifecycle on January 12, 2021, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote four components.
Windows 10 users will continue to download, install, and use Office for the next month. After January 12, Microsoft will remove the download, users will no longer be able to access through official channels, and installed users will continue to use, but will no longer receive any maintenance support at their own risk.
Microsoft says it will continue to provide a great Office experience for mobile phone users, moving to Android and iOS platforms.
