Just a couple of days back, we reported that Instagram will be leaving the Windows Phone platform on 30th April. Now a new report from Engadget confirms that Instagram won’t be the only app leaving the platform on 30th April.

Microsoft has already declared Windows Phone platform dead which has pushed developers away from the platform. Now Engadget has confirmed that Facebook will be killing off their apps on 30th April. Surprisingly, WhatsApp will still work on the platform as Facebook is planning to kill only the main Facebook app, Facebook Messenger and Instagram.

Facebook, however, has separate Windows 10 apps so the PC users shouldn’t be affected by the move. With Microsoft abandoning the OS, this is of course not surprising in any way. One could actually more reasonably ask what took them so long. Are any of our readers affected? Let us know below.
