Windows Phone is practically dead and you might know that since Microsoft chose to stop supporting the platform and focus on other ventures.

For the time being, Microsoft will continue to support push notifications, as well as live tiles, on newer devices with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Mobile 10 (like the Lumia 1020 pictured above). Windows Phone 8.0 platform was the company's attempt to wrest a piece of the mobile pie away from rivals; iOS and Android.

As Microsoft previously announced, Windows Phone platform - no longer receive any upgrades.

Your phone will not receive additional live tile updates. However, for users of smartphones running legacy Windows Phone operating systems, Microsoft is making it harder to remain stuck in the past.

While Microsoft phones with Windows OS were nearly out of the markets due to low engagement ratio, the news of Andromeda has warmed up Microsoft's mobile tech launch pad again. It's worth noting, of course, that Windows Phone 8.1 support ended back in July, so there's no guarantee that Microsoft will continue to support it with notification services for any given time.

Hope may still spring, though: Rumor is that Microsoft is working on a new, foldable tablet device that could also function as a smartphone.
