Windows Phone 8.1 is no longer supported, and that means even Microsoft is dropping services for the platform, including updates and even Store support.

It seems one of those features being dropped is some elements of Cortana, with the app currently showing the above screen saying:

Change is constant

My clever engineers are making some improvements back at base. By January this page will be retired, and I won’t be using it to show you what’s coming next.I’ll still be there to answer your questions and keep your reminders.

Given that the operating system is now nearly 18 months out of support users can not really complain, though I suspect wrapping up the announcement in cutesy language and the promise of improvement seems somewhat immature.

Are any of our readers still on Windows Phone 8.1? What do you make of the announcement? Let us know below.
