Microsoft dropping support for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0

21 February 2018

Microsoft is ending support for mobile push notifications on its Windows Phone 7 and 8 software by February 20th.

Microsoft has hammered one more nail into Windows Phone's coffin, announcing that Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 will no longer receive notifications.

For those of you using newer Windows phones will not have to worry as it only affects the older phones.
