As Windows phone’s market share crumbles, banks around the world have pulled support from the platform.

Nubank Brazil is one of the recent ones, reaching out to users to let them know that support for the banking app is EOL, meaning that it is likely to be pulled and rendered non-functional in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, the bank Türkiye ?? Bankas? A.?. communicated to its users via email from the 21st of March 2018, they’ll be unable to login to their bank account via the Windows phone app.

Users in both cases are advised to use more modern mobile platforms like iOS and Android or use the web app.

The reasons for this are obvious, and need not be rehashed in any detail.  Windows phone didn’t take off, and as more customers are moving towards the iPhone and Android, banks and app developers are adjusting their strategy likewise.

Does your bank still support Microsoft’s mobile platform? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks for the tip TSGS!
