Jan 19, 2:29 AM EST Newsletter Signup BusinessTechnologyWorldNationalMedia & CultureOpinionSportsLuxury Technology By Mike Luces 12/07/17 AT 9:26 PM It’s sad news day for Kik Messenger users on Windows Phone. The app is no longer available on the platform as it has bid goodbye and officially disappeared from the Windows Store.On Thursday, MSPowerUser discovered that one of the first messaging apps on the Windows Phone OS is no longer present on the platform. The outlet was tipped by some users that the app actually went missing from the Windows Store at the end of November.

Best answer: No, Microsoft isn't building new features for Windows phone. There are no new phones, and in the next year, Microsoft will abandon the platform altogether. If you must, however, we recommend the Alcatel Idol 4S. But you'd be much better off with a OnePlus 6T or iPhone XR.

It was no longer committed to building new features, experiences, or devices for Windows 10 Mobile, and within the next year, the company will outright abandon the platform as support comes to an end.

I've been using Windows phones exclusively since 2006. My first smartphone (second cell phone) was the Cingular 2125 running Windows Mobile 5.0, and I loved it. I've enjoyed all of my Windows phones. From Windows Mobile 5.0 to Windows Phone 7.5, to Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile, devices powered by Microsoft's mobile platform have been my portal to the smartphone experience. I web surfed, played music, watched movies, ran apps, took pictures, accessed Office documents and more with my Cingular 2125 which introduced me to mobile computing before Apple's iPhone "mainstreamed" consumer smartphones in 2007. The productivity power and versatility of "Windows in my pocket" has long appealed to me, though Microsoft has yet to perfect the pocket computer vision I embraced. So even through the waves of disappointments familiar to enthusiasts who've endured the promises and failures of Windows-on-phone, I held on to what I liked through the years. I liked Windows phone. I like … [Read more...] about A Windows phone diehard FINALLY embraced Android — here’s how it’s going so far
