In a recent tweet by a Microsoft exec, Microsoft will no longer develop “new” features in its Windows phone platform. Given the fact that only Android and iOS devices have big share in the market Windows phone fails to impress people in its smartphone features.

Microsoft will still able to support the platform only into servicing mode, with just bug fixes and security updates for existing users. According to recent sceptics, the company admits that developers never backed the platform because there are only a few users for them to invest.

Also, Microsoft Edge has been released for iOS and Android in beta. This just means that the company is trying to push its way to the mobile platform as its own Windows OS is failing in that market. “This new area of focus means Microsoft is now working on multi-device scenarios and cloud-powered technologies that don’t always involve Windows.” –  The Verge
