Facebook and its Messenger app have been delisted from Windows Phone Store. So if you want to use Facebook and the Messenger app, it is advisable that you look somewhere else. And unfortunately, you have only two choices, Android or iOS.

This comes at a time when WhatsApp is already in the process of putting an end to support for all versions of Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile. As we reported earlier, Windows Phone users will not be able to use WhatsApp on their Windows smartphone after December 31.

Fortunately, Facebook and its Messenger app are still available in the Windows Phone Store as a beta app, and that means Windows Phone users will still be able to use them as long as Facebook decides to keep their beta version in the store. However, if you’re heavily dependant on Facebook, you definitely wouldn’t want to run a beta app for your daily conversation.

But if you’re an ardent Windows Phone fan, use Facebook daily and don’t want to bid goodbye to Windows Phone any time soon, the best option is to try mbasic.facebook.com or touch.facebook.com. They are definitely better than the beta version.

Are you still using Windows Phone as your primary smartphone? Can you see the Facebook and Messenger app in the Store? Do let us know in the comments below.
