Microsoft confirms the end of support for Office Apps on Windows 10 Mobile

 

Microsoft has already confirmed the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile and after 10th December Windows 10 Mobile devices will no longer receive updates. Unfortunately, Microsoft is also dropping support for first-party apps for Windows 10 Mobile.

 

According to a post published yesterday (via Plaffo), Microsoft will be dropping support for Office Apps on Windows 10 Mobile on 12th January 2021. Microsoft noted that the Office apps include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote. After this date, Office apps will no longer receive security updates, free assisted support options or online technical content updates from Microsoft. This, however, applies just to Windows 10 Mobile users and other platforms including Android and iOS will remain unaffected.

 

Microsoft also stated that the apps will continue to work past the end of support but won’t receive important security updates. Microsoft recommended users to switch to Android or iOS to get the latest updates and security updates. Microsoft is not the only company that is dropping support for Windows 10 Mobile apps. Last month, WhatsApp confirmed that it will drop support for the app on 31st December 2019.
