Microsoft Retires Another App After Killing WINDOWS Phone
« on: July 17, 2017, 05:03:47 AM »

Microsoft ended support for Windows Phone 8.1 earlier this week, leaving Windows 10 Mobile the only version of the operating system thatís still getting support, and now the company is making another change thatís impacting its own platform.

The official app developed by LinkedIn, a company that Microsoft purchased last year, is being pulled, so neither Windows Phone nor Windows 10 Mobile devices will be able to run it.

The LinkedIn app is going dark on August 31 this year, and LinkedIn tells users to switch to the browser in order to continue connecting to their accounts. This is the workaround that every single developer thatís leaving the platform is providing to their users, and LinkedIn even includes detailed instructions on how to pin the website to the Start menu.

ďWe are retiring the existing Windows Mobile app on August 31, which means the app icon will remain on your phone but will no longer work. You can continue to use LinkedIn on your Windows phone by going to from your mobile browser (Edge, Internet Explorer),Ē the company says.
