The CNN app was already quite old, and it probably didn’t have a lot of users. CNN may be planning to release a Windows 10 app in the future, but we’ll let you know when and if that happens. In the meantime, you can just use the built-in News app in Windows 10 to stay up-to-date with the latest news.
