GoPro drops Windows Phone support

Himanshu, 29 March, 2016

Back in December last year, action camera maker GoPro promised to update their Windows Phone app with support for Windows 10 Mobile. However, it has now come to light that the company has dropped the support for Microsoft's mobile platform.

"Please keep in mind that the previous post stating that we support Windows phones was back in the beginning of December of last year, and as is the nature of technology things change fast," a GoPro support member wrote while replying to a user query on the company's website.

"That being said, we definitely do offer legacy support for Windows phones. This means we will do all we can to help out in getting your phone and camera connected, but we will no longer adding updates and new features to the Windows platform." The company has also stopped advertising Windows Phone support - GoPro's website now only shows Google Play and Apple App Store as the download options for its app.

This comes shortly after the company discontinued its budget HERO series of cameras.
