Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) included Rooms in Windows Phone 8 when it launched in 2012. The feature was considered an extension of the People hub and allowed users of the mobile operating system to share photos, notes, calendars or just chat with other in their own private “rooms”.
However, the feature must have not achieved the traction the Windows Phone maker wanted as the feature is now going away courtesy of the latest mobile version of Windows 10.
“We’re making way for new features in Windows 10 that will help you stay in touch with the people that matter most. Once you update to Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones, rooms will no longer show up on your phone,” the technology behemoth said in an email.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has ended the ability to create rooms in Windows Phone 8 though users of the old mobile operating system can still view their surviving rooms. Sending messages will be turned off by March.
For those who have upgraded to Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) wants you to say goodbye to Rooms. The feature was notably absent from the preview build that the software giant rolled out earlier this month and this email has confirmed that Rooms won’t survive after Windows Phone 8.1.
For now, users of the dying service are encouraged to backup information in the Rooms that they want to save.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) shareholders includes Jeffrey Ubben’s ValueAct Capital which owned a massive stake comprised of about 74.24 million shares by the end of September.
