Microsoft's mobile operating system, Windows Phone, is officially dead. The ill-fated phone platform failed to make a significant dent in iPhone and Android sales, and indeed now Microsoft is recommending that owners migrate to Apple or Google's platforms.

As per observation by Thurrott, Microsoft has suggested to all existing users of Windows 10 Mobile that they should now opt for "other platforms", which basically means Android or iOS.

Windows 10 Mobile support is coming to an end in December.

David Ramel is the editor of Visual Studio Magazine. The news doesn't come as a surprise as Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows 10, had made clear that they wont be focusing on new features or hardware for Windows 10 Mobile back in 2017. Support for the mobile OS is ending later this year. It's even worse if you own a Microsoft Lumia or Lumia XL: June 11, 2019 will be the last date those devices are supported.

Microsoft is preparing to say goodbye to Windows 10 Mobile, warning hold-outs that their smartphones will no longer get support by the end of the year.

So how do you feel about Microsoft finally pulling the plug on their mobile platform? Android appears to be receiving the bulk of Microsoft's support, with a launcher and more apps available there.

If you are on Release Preview Ring you can download the update by going to Windows Update and click on Check For Updates. It's already built a mobile version of Edge, an Android launcher, Windows Timeline integration, Cortana, and more for team Android.

Microsoft itself no longer sells Windows phones, but certain models, like the HP Elite X3, continue to be available from various retailers.

Customers who plan to run devices with Windows 10 Mobile after support end are encouraged to craete manual backups; this is done under Settings Update & Security Backup More Options Back up now.

For now, I suppose the best move is to heed Microsoft's advice and drop the doomed mobile OS before it's too late.

But, Microsoft couldn't keep up with the Android and iOS trends and eventually died out.
