Microsoft will discontinue the Reader app early next year, trying to convince users to switch to Microsoft Edge instead.

In a notification displayed to users when launching the latest version of the Reader app, Microsoft explains that support would be pulled in February 2018, and customers won’t be able to use it beyond this date.

“Microsoft is retiring the Reader app on this and later versions of Windows 10 and you will not be to use this app after 15 February 2018. We recommend Microsoft Edge for reading PDF, Windows XPS Viewer for XPS, and Windows Photos app for TIFF files,” Microsoft says in a warning that also includes a link to open the file in Microsoft Edge (via onMSFT).

While it’s awkward that Microsoft recommends users to switch to three different apps just because it kills one tool, it’s believed the Reader app hasn’t been the most widely-used document viewer lately, especially given the Microsoft Edge push in Windows 10.
