Facebook will terminate its Windows Phone apps on April 30

Facebook Instagram and Messenger apps abandoning Windows Phone this month

Behold the smouldering wreckage

Windows 10 Mobile users are about to lose their official Instagram app at the end of the month. Based on current rankings, Facebook's family of apps are now among the most popular offerings still downloaded by Windows Phone users.

News of the upcoming change was first reported by Windows Phone users on Reddit, where they noted that Instagram had pushed out an update warning that support would end on April 30. The Windows Phone platform has been on its death bed since Microsoft announced that they were killing it off in 2016 due to low sales that are still affecting even existing giant smartphone manufacturers like Apple and Samsung. Windows 10 users will be able to operate and download the app normally. We have seen major third-party apps being pulled out of Microsoft Store since 2015. As of now, WhatsApp only supports Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile OS, but it would be just a matter of time, when Facebook retires the messaging application from Microsoft store. At the weekend Windows Phone users received a notification from Instagram stating that the app would no longer be available on Microsoft's hardware. It even stopped issuing security and software updates previous year in December 2018.

Believe it or not, there are still folks using Windows Phones but sadly their access to apps is about to get much smaller.
