Microsoft has made it official to shutdown the support for all push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 devices which started yesterday being Tuesday.
Once the support is terminated, devices running on these versions of the Windows mobile operating system would no longer receive notifications and additional live tile updates as well as the “Find my phone” feature would no longer locate a user’s smartphone.
“Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 have reached their end of support dates and thus services for these versions of Windows will be discontinued over time,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Microsoft also make it known that windows phone 8.1 and above will keep receiving the service.
“Notification services will continue to function for Windows Phone 8.1 at this time and newer phones running Windows 10 Mobile are still fully supported,”
