Support may end earlier than that for certain handsets running Windows 10 Mobile.

In case Windows 10 mobile OS becomes obsolete, then the users will have to choose either Android or iOS, and this is pretty obvious. The company is officially recommending its Windows 10 Mobile users to move to Android and iOS. Alongside the company is also building apps that would work across foldable as well as dual screen devices.

Microsoft's FAQ floated the possibility that other software vendors could offer Windows 10 Mobile patch support.

Microsoft is planning to put its future mobile app development efforts behind the iOS and Android platforms, going forward. Users could continue using their Windows Mobile devices.

But as of now, it is clear that Windows 10 Mobile as a platform is dead. 'You should be able to use it on Google Assistant, ' he said during the media event.
