Voxer WP8 app will no longer work after Sept. 26


22, 2016


Back in 2013, Voxer first released their app for Windows Phone 8 platform. Voxer allows you to easily and instantly communicate with one friend or a group of friends. Friends can listen to your message while you talk, or check audio messages later. After their initial release, there was no major update from Voxer for their WP8 app, but their app continued to work. Today, they have confirmed that Voxer app on Windows Phone 8 devices will no longer work from September 26th due to changes in their infrastructure.

When we launched the Voxer app in the Windows Store in 2014 we were amazed by the number of avid WP8 users that started using the platform. A lot has changed since 2014. Microsoft has moved to WP10 as it’s core mobile offering. The number of users on WP8 has been steadily decreasing. As a result, Voxer can no longer support WP8 devices. We will be doing some infrastructure upgrades starting Monday, September 26, 2016. Unfortunately that means that the Voxer app will no longer function for most WP8 users. You may continue to access your Voxer account via our web product, available for Chrome and Firefox browsers. We are constantly updating and improving our iOS and Android apps as well. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes and thank you for using Voxer.

Currently, they don’t have any plans to develop their app for Windows 10 Mobile. Are you still using Voxer? Let us know your thoughts on this app/service in the comments section below.
