In what comes as expected, popular online telephone directory Truecaller has pulled out its support for the Windows Phone platform. An official tweet from the company confirms that Truecaller will no more be supported on the Windows Mobile platform, leaving existing users to depend on their website alone.

The decision has been taken in lieu of discarded support from Windows Mobile’s developers and Microsoft itself. Windows 10 Mobile is on life support for the past few years, with no new devices using it as its operating system. With a majority of users migrating to the popular mobile platforms, Truecaller has been pulled out from the Microsoft Store and will longer be available for download on Windows Phones.

 

“Due to Microsoft stopping focus on developing Windows 10 Mobile, we have also discontinued support. Sorry about that,” read the tweet. “Unfortunately, we have stopped supporting Windows 10 Mobile. If you want to still lookup numbers, you can go to truecaller.com,” another tweet states.

With Truecaller pulling out, Windows Mobile is lacking support from major services and apps, thereby making the Windows Phones good enough only for making calls, sending texts and browsing the Internet. Microsoft will keep supporting the platform until mid-2019, after which Windows Phone will be left for good.
