Microsoft will no longer focus on Windows Mobile

Finally, if you thought that Microsoft didn't try hard enough to get developers on board with Windows 10 Mobile, that turns out not to be the case. But one of its execs has now clarified its position: Windows on mobile is no longer a focus for the company.

For those wondering why Windows Phone failed to take hold, there's no real mystery to unravel.

Microsoft Corporation's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Joe Belfiore has confirmed that Windows Phones are basically dead.

Microsoft's desperate effort to port its world-leading operating system into mobile devices is over, according to a Redmond executive. This leaves the smartphone industry with just two rivals - Android and iOS, though Windows Phone could never acquire a major portion of the pie.

Microsoft started gutting its phone business previous year, making thousands of job cuts.

However, the Windows 10 chief made an assurance that they will continue to support the different companies that were using the platform.

Belfiore admitted that he no longer users a Windows phone.

Last month, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates outed himself as an Android user. This suggests the tech giant will now focus on multi-device scenarios and intelligent cloud solutions. Most recently, Microsoft cut off support for Windows Phone 8.1 and above.

According to netmarketshare, a website that tracks the market share of operating systems, Windows Phone now has mere 0.87% market share. His recent tweets revealed the discontinuity for windows phones. It was said that Windows 10 Mobile would allow the users to move between desktop and mobile or tablet seamlessly - an "everywhere OS".

Customers were informed of the change by an email from Facebook. "Choose what's best 4 u". But, in the end, the "volume of users is too low for most companies to invest", he added. The key feature expected in the app is its "Continue on PC" option that enables users to send webpages to a PC, restore earlier pages, or resume from the last page.
