Yesterday we reported that Microsoft is closing its Lumia Regional Twitter and Facebook handle accounts at the end of this month. Now there is another confirmation from Microsoft Lumia US through its Instagram account that the Regional Instagram Lumia Account is also going to be shutdown/merged with the main Microsoft Lumia account.

There has been no specific date mentioned but, as rumoured the Instagram account could also see its end on 31st Aug 2016 00.00 hrs which is the date given for the closure of Twitter and Facebook regional accounts.

In a post on Instagram the company revealed that its Instagram Account will soon be changed to @MicorosoftLumia.

“Our Instagram account will soon be @MicrosoftLumia. Don’t worry, you don’t need to do anything and you’ll get beautiful tranquil images shot on a #Lumia straight to your feed. This is all to make it easier for you to be part of our international, larger, Microsoft family. “

This would mean that the company is trying to get all its Regional accounts under one roof to have a larger community of Windows Users getting access to daily updates on Windows Phones, future of Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and also likely the launch of Surface Phone.

This change could well mean that the Lumia 650 could be the last Lumia Device launched by Microsoft before unveiling its Rumored Surface Phones to the Windows Fans. Don’t be surprised if the same regional accounts might get a change in name once the launch of Surface Phone.
