Truecaller, the popular caller ID solution for blocking spam
calls, has ended support for its Windows Phone app. The
company last week ended support for its Windows Phone app, and
you can no longer download it from the Microsoft Store
(formerly), leaving the Windows ecosystem somewhat poorer once
Truecaller’s Twitter handle confirmed that they have ended
support for app on Windows platform as Microsoft discontinued
“Due to Microsoft stopping focus on developing Windows 10
Mobile, we have also discontinued support. Sorry about that,”
the company said in a tweet.
“Unfortunately, we have stopped support for Windows 10 Mobile.
This is why you are experiencing this. If you still want to
look up numbers, please use our number lookup on [website],”
the company said in a follow up tweet to another user.
While some say PWA will replace these important apps, it seems
unlikely as Truecaller’s website only allows you to check the
unknown numbers, and it does not offer real-time
protection from spam calls and messages.
