Microsoft pulled LinkedIn app from Windows Store


Aah! here it comes. Another set back. Microsoft pulled the LinkedIn app from the Windows Store. Actually a while ago company accidentally sent emails to Windows Phone users that they will discontinue app but later on they clarified it. But now we have confirmation.

Back in June 2016 Microsoft acquired one the most popular professional networking company LinkedIn. For a moment we thought that company will bring Universal Windows Platform app for it but thing’s are gonna different now. Microsoft pulled the LinkedIn silverlight app from the Windows Store. That means user will not able to download the app from now. If you have already app installed on your device then you will able to use it but until you uninstall it.

Actually you will not find the app from by searching it nor direct download link will work. So thins thing point out that the company will drop support for the Silverlight app. But hopefully company will launch the Universal Windows Platform app. Maybe. No information about it yet.

We are also hearing from our sources that company is working on the new mobile hardware which is expected to announce by end of the year and will be available by next year. And this device will not have support for the Silverlight apps. Only UWP.

Microsoft have lots of things under pipeline for next 12 months. And dropping the support for Silverlight app is just the small thing. Are you using LinkedIn on Windows Phone?
