Push Notifications Ending For Windows 7.5 and 8.0

Windows Phone 7.5, 8.0: Microsoft just killed push notification services

Windows 7, 8 phone users will no longer receive push notifications. Here is why?

There are some users who are determined to continue using their Windows Phones until they fall apart, saying they would never transition to any other mobile operating system no matter how many apps leave the system as long as they still have their Live Tiles.

Microsoft's all-but-euthanized Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0. Those phones were initially released to the public in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

Now, per The Verge, Microsoft has pulled out a stake and driven it right through the Windows Phone's lifeless heart by announcing it is ending support for mobile push notifications.

Microsoft still promises that phones with Windows Phone 8.1 have push notification support and Windows 10 Mobile are fully supported so if you are a diehard Windows Phone fan, you now have two options.

Windows Phone is practically dead and you might know that since Microsoft made a decision to stop supporting the platform and focus on other ventures. Once this happens: Your phone will no longer receive notifications.

It's worth noting that this decision makes the handsets totally useless, even the Android phones with Gingerbread has no such limitations. However, once support comes to an end for those platforms as well, it is likely Microsoft will also turn off push notifications there too.
