LinkedIn has today announced users on mails that they will be retiring the existing Windows Mobile App on 08/31/2017. It is another blow already struggling Windows phone users. The app won’t work after the deadline date even if you have installed the app before it. LinkedIn says that Windows phone users who want to use their service should now use their Web browser to access linkedin.com website.
Apparently they have also mentioned that the website will offer all the Linkedln features, including search and profile editing, which were not available on the app. They have also announced that they will be launching a new Linkedln Windows desktop app in a few weeks that will be available on the Windows 10 App store.
They have advised users to pin the website to your start screen for easy access to Linkedln on their Windows 10 mobile smartphone. You can do that by:
- Open the web browser on your Windows phone.
- Enter www.linkedin.com and navigate to the site
- Tap the three-dot menu button at the top right.
- Select “Pin To Start”
It’s a really bad situation for Windows 10 Mobile users because now even Microsoft has been retiring their Services from the mobile OS.
