Yet another company is giving up on Windows Phone platform, Kik Messenger for Windows Phone has been removed from the Microsoft Store. Up to recently, Windows Phones were included in Kik’s list of supported mobile platform but the social media company recently pulled the app from the Microsoft Store.
“We aren’t working on an update to Windows Phone, as resources are currently allotted to Android and iOS. It is on our radar, and we will look to make this update in the future,” Rod McLeod, the Director of Communications at Kik said last year.
Users recently discovered that Kik has removed their Messenger app for Windows Phones from the Store. Kik has also removed the download links from its website, meaning that now there’s no way to install Kik Messenger on your Windows Phone, but it should function properly if you have it installed already.
Kik Messenger is a instant messaging mobile app from the Canadian company Kik Interactive, available on all popular mobile platforms; Android and iOS. Kik allows users to send and receive messages, photos, videos, sketches, mobile webpages.
Kik currently has no plan for a app based on Universal Windows Platform for Windows 10 PCs and Mobile. It seems that only WhatsApp is serious about its Windows Phone app, the company recently updated its Windows Phone app with a lot of new features.
