Smartphones running Windows Phone 7.5 or Windows 8 are no longer getting push notifications, after Microsoft announced it's pulled support. In a series of tweets, Joe Belfiore, the company's corporate vice president in the operating system group system clearly confirmed that no Windows Phone will be upgraded with new features. Neither operating system found a huge audience at the time, and there likely aren't many phones out there using it today - which is part of why Microsoft now finds itself in this suboptimal smartphone situation in the first place. Microsoft released a statement which says both Windows 7.5 and 8.0 have reached their end of support dates and that service for these versions will be discontinued over time. The phrasing here keeps the door open that things could change in the not-so-distant future.
