Microsoft has has officially given up on Windows Phone. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, in a series of tweets, has revealed that the software giant is no longer developing new features or hardware for Windows 10 Mobile.

While Windows Phone fans had hoped Microsoft would update the platform with new features, it’s now clear the operating system has been placed into servicing mode, with just bug fixes and security updates for existing users.

“Of course we’ll continue to support the platform… bug fixes, security updates, etc. But building new features/[hardware] aren’t the focus,” he wrote over the weekend.

One of the big reasons Microsoft is giving up on Windows Phone is because developers never backed the platform. Microsoft had many problems with its Windows Phone app store, and the inability to retain apps once they were developed.

“We have tried VERY HARD to [incentivise] app devs. Paid money.. wrote apps 4 them.. but volume of users is too low for most companies to invest,” Belfiore wrote.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has been dead for more than a year, but the company has never officially admitted it before. CEO Satya Nadella , during Microsoft’s recent Build and Inspire conferences, dropped the company’s mantra of “mobile-first, cloud-first” in favor of a focus on what he describes as the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge.

Belfiore also admitted to switching from Windows Phone to a rival mobile platform. Bill Gates recently did the same thing, choosing Android over the iPhone.
