Microsoft has been ignoring Windows 10 Mobile for a while now. The assumption and rumours have already confirmed that Windows 10 Mobile is dead and Microsoft is working on Andromeda OS, a new version of Windows 10 that will fill the gap between mobile and PC.
Recently, a report revealed that Microsoft has planned to support the current Windows Phones like HP Elite x3 or Lumia 950 until the end of 2018. The company is also working on enterprise focused features for the operating system. It seems Microsoft hasn’t internally given up on its mobile operating system.
Microsoft is internally treating Windows 10 Mobile as an important OS for their Windows business. A new report claims that Microsoft would use Windows 10 Mobile to test new apps and services for PCs and small form-factor devices. Microsoft recently launched the Windows Phone’s WordFlow keyboard for iOS, Windows 10 PCs and it also said to be part of the Redmond giant’s new project.
Microsoft has also moved Windows 10 Mobile to a different development branch than PCs and Tablets. Initially, it was a temporary change but now Microsoft has decided to dump Windows 10 Mobile in favour of new Andromeda OS. However, the company is still going to use Windows 10 Mobile for testing new apps with Windows Insiders.
