Microsoft To Shut Down Nokia Reading App And Its Service By End Of This Year

Nokia Reading

Nokia Reading app for Lumia devices allowed users to download eBooks or import their own via OneDrive. It also allowed users to read internet news stories with News Stream. Microsoft today sent out an email that the Nokia Reading app will be discontinued by 31st December 2014. They have mentioed that the service has reached maturity, and they have taken this decision knowing that there are many other eReading apps, such as Kindle and Audible available in the Microsoft Store.

Dear Nokia Reader,

We are letting you know that the Nokia Reading app has reached maturity. The Nokia Reading app will be discontinued by 31st December 2014.

Up until 31st December 2014, you will be able to purchase new books and to access previously purchased books from the Nokia Reading archive. News Streams will no longer be accessible.

You can still read books you have bought from the Nokia Reading bookstore by simply downloading the books from the Archive in ‘My Books’ before 31st December 2014. You can keep ebooks on the phone for as long as you like. The same applies for audio books purchased via Nokia Reading.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any further questions, please see our FAQs.

Thank you,

Services Team at Microsoft Devices
