Facebook Apps To Be Removed From Windows Phone Starting April 30th by sleeksavbvy: 1:26pm On Apr 04, 2019

Facebook has announced that it will remove its apps for Windows Phone, including Messenger, Instagram, and the original Facebook app.

According to a Microsoft spokeswoman, Facebook will end its support for its apps on Windows Mobile starting April 30th. Windows Phone users will then have to resort to accessing Facebook or Instagram through their phone's browser.

The upcoming removal was first noticed this weekend on Instagram, as reported by Windows Central. Windows Phone users on Reddit said they received a notification saying that Instagram would pull its app on April 30th.

Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger are all among the top free apps in the Microsoft Store, but it's unclear exactly how many active users this will impact.

Still, the departure of Facebook shouldn't surprise many Windows Phone users.Microsoft announced it was officially killing off its Windows Phone business in 2016 following lackluster sales. It halted issuing security and software updates in December 2018. Major third-party apps have been fleeing the Microsoft Store since 2015.
