Microsoft has already announced that Windows 10 Mobile will be
reaching the end of support in December which has made more and
more developers to abandon their apps for Microsoft’s mobile
platform.

Earlier this month, Microsoft quietly announced
that the official Microsoft Translator app for Windows 10
Mobile will also stop working later this year. The company has
announced that the text translation will continue to work but
speech translation is expected to be killed off in October.

Users who have already installed the Translator app on their
Windows 10 Mobile will be able to use the app until the end of
this year. However, if you accidentally remove the app from
your Windows 10 Mobile then you will not be able to install it
back again.

“Microsoft Translator app on the Windows Phone 10 will not be
available in the Microsoft Store starting in April 2019. If you
currently use the Windows Phone 10 app, text translation will
still work, but speech translation will not be available
starting on October 15, 2019. Translator will continue to
support and enhance the Windows 10 app for PC,” Microsoft
explains.

Microsoft is advising users to try Translator app on Windows 10
PCs, Android or iOS devices.

Windows 10 Home and Pro to be discontinued next week

With the development of Microsoft’s next major update Windows
10 May 2019 Update almost complete, the company will be ending
support for its earlier Windows 10 version 1709 also known as
Fall Creators Update.

The Windows 10 Home and Pro editions are expected to be
discontinued starting next week. The last updates for this
version are expected to be shipped on April 9, Tuesday.

However, Windows 10 version 1709 for Enterprise and Education
users will continue to receive updates until April 14, 2020.
Hence users still running the Fall Creators Update are advised
to upgrade to the company’s latest software update Windows 10
October 2018 Update before the deadline.
