Microsoft Portugal claims Pokemon Go coming to Windows phone, but don’t get your hopes up


Had enough of Lumia support telling you that Snapchat is coming to your Windows Phone. Now, Pokemon Go is the latest app lusted after by Windows phone users, left out of the new phenomenon., and Microsoft is offering an adapted version of the same sweet talk.

In response to a user posting on their Facebook page, Microsoft Portugal [‘s social media intern] replied that the app would be making its app to Windows Phone

Here’s a translated version of the post;

Hi Rafael,
The application will be home soon, which refers to the windows phone store.
Thank you,
Team Microsoft Portugal

While it is possible that Pokemon Go could be coming to Windows phones – Google Search, YouTube and Waze do exist in the store – it is quite improbable. Especially when it is taken into account Microsoft’s very public refocusing of the Windows phone platform as an enterprise one. It’s also worth noting that several times, Microsoft support workers have told Windows users that apps like Snapchat would be making their way to the platform, information which is clearly inaccurate.

In other words, we’ll note this is a thing that was promised, but we’re loathe to ascribe to it any credibility.
