Microsoft to kill its UserVoice website, rely on Windows Feedback app


As Microsoft has been offering Insider builds to both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile fanatics, users were able to offer suggestions and feedback via Microsoft’s UserVoice website and the built-in Feedback app bundled into the builds. Soon users will only have the later option as Microsoft looks to consolidate these services.

According to a post on the Windows User voice forums:

Windows Feedback gives all engineers in Windows access to the complete set of raw feedback that users provide in the tool. Because it is plugged directly into our engineering system, it not only makes it easy for the engineers to find user feedback, but also makes it easy for them to act on it. Windows Feedback also enabled two-way conversations between engineers and our more than seven million Windows Insiders. This allows you to see if your feedback is in our systems, and ready to be promoted to a work item.

Though the shut down technically began October 30th, the website will still be accessible until November 16th, lining up rather closely with the expected Windows 10 Fall Update.

What do our readers think? Is it a good idea shutting down the UserVoice site for the feedback app, or did you prefer the web service? Let us know in the comments below.
