Push Notifications Ending For Windows 7.5 and 8.0

Push Notifications Ending For Windows 7.5 and 8.0

Now, per The Verge, Microsoft has pulled out a stake and driven it right through the Windows Phone's lifeless heart by announcing it is ending support for mobile push notifications.

The technology giant confirmed that from February 20, devices running either version of the software will no longer receive notifications or live tile updates. They will also lose the useful live tile updates that displayed information at a glance, and users will no longer be able to locate devices with the "find my phone" feature.

The windows phones are fading from the market and have been out of the picture since Microsoft made a decision to stop supporting the platform which is demand and focus on other ventures.Although it doesn't make any difference ending the push notification feature.

"Once this happens: Your phone will no longer receive notifications". Despite the nomenclature, they were totally different operating systems: Windows Phone 7.5 hardware couldn't upgrade to Windows Phone 8.

Meanwhile, Windows 10 Mobile, which launched in 2015, is still fully supported by Microsoft.

If you're one of the few using the more recent Windows Phone 8.1, which dropped in 2014, Microsoft writes that everything will still work as usual "at this time". This basically means that the surface phone presentation could take place officially even before the rumored dates that are 'towards the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019'. Instead of Windows Phone, Microsoft will now focus on Android and iOS apps. However, for users of smartphones running legacy Windows Phone operating systems, Microsoft is making it harder to remain stuck in the past.
