Facebook Messenger to drop support for some Windows smartphones, Android and iOS devices in line


If you are using a Windows smartphone and Facebook Messenger eats a lot of time of your day then this might interest you. Starting end of March, Facebook will drop the support for Facebook Messenger on smartphones running Windows 8.1 OS or below. For the stats, currently, about 76.3 percent of Windows smartphone users run Windows 8.1 OS version.

As per the latest report from AggiornamentiLumia.it, users running Windows 8.1 on their device have started receiving emails which reads - “Thank you for choosing to use Messenger,” the notification reads. “We regret to inform you that since the end of March, the app version you’re using is no longer supported and you can no send and receive messages.”

“To continue to send and receive messages from Facebook on your phone, update your Facebook app to the latest version.”

Further, Facebook Messenger doesn’t support Windows 8.1 for its latest update so users have to eventually update the Windows OS version or buy a new Windows smartphone incase there is no update for the said device.

WhatsApp did something similar earlier this year where it dropped the support for Android 2.2 froyo and older versions, iOS 6 and older versions and Windows Phone 7 operating system. Further, Microsoft also dropped the support for Skype for various dated devices running on older OS versions, earlier this month.

With Windows 8.1 on cards, we expect Facebook to run the same drill for older Android and iOS devices as well. So, don’t be surprised if you get a notification asking you to update your Messenger app or warning you about the discontinuation of support.
