CallerID app TrueCaller has ended the availability of their app in the Microsoft Store and confirmed on Twitter that they are no longer supporting Windows Phone, saying:
“Due to Microsoft stopping focus on developing Windows 10 Mobile, we have also discontinued support. Sorry about that.”
In another tweet they said:
“Unfortunately, we have stopped support for Windows 10 Mobile. This is why you are experiencing this. If you still want to look up numbers, please use our number lookup on [website].”
While normally this news would simply be par for the course for Microsoft moribund phone operating system, it is notable that, according to reliable reports, Microsoft is releasing a small mobile device that will be able to make phone calls, and due to Microsoft not making any efforts to preserve their smartphone app ecosystem the device will launch into a more or less blank slate once again, something which has always been associated with failure for Microsoft.
The app can be seen but not downloaded in the Windows Store here.
