    Tencent was rumored that it had abandoned WM10 since last October, and had stopped updating its IM app Wechat and QQ for WindowsPhones.

    The rumor said Tencent had dismissed its all developing teams working on WindowsPhone, leaving only a few to fix critical bugs. No more new features.

    Windows 10 Mobile is still not coming and have kept in preview for a long time; its users are moving to Android and iOS, the director of Tencent WP Developing Team said in the rumor. The WP Developing Team members are now working on other platforms. There will be no more new updates nor new features.


    WeChat is the most popular IM app in china, which has billions of users across the globe. Tencent made agreements in the last year to provide UWP apps for Windows 10 Mobile, and provided assist for Windows 10 upgrade since last July.

    In the lack of Tencent apps, Microsoft Mobile might face devastating defeat and a dead circle in China.

    Guys. It is almost certain that without WeChat, Windows Mobile is as good as dead in China.

    Although of course that article isn't an official statement by Tencent that they have abandoned Windows 10 Mobile but the author does has a point, if they haven't, done anything in all that time, then it's almost the same thing.

    Absolutely unbelievable, to not support QQ and Wechat really is the total death of Windows phone in China, Every Chinese person on the planet unless they are in a coma from birth has a QQ account. I cannot believe that any software and Hardware manufacturing company can abandon the worlds largest and fastest growing economic buying sector on the planet, Westerners think Facebook is a big thing, well it aint nothing compared to Tencents offerings.
    I had wondered why QQ and wechat updates had slowed down to almost nill since the end of last year. MICROSOFT WAKE UP.

    Rip, guess I'll have to eventually rely on an Android tablet to talk to my relatives in China, who pretty much only use WeChat.

    Same for my parents. The main way they chat and share pictures with relatives in China is through WeChat and QQ. Practically nothing else works because of that ridiculous Great Firewall crap. Skype worked when I used it, but none of my relatives in China uses it, unlike WeChat and QQ, which they all use. If WeChat and QQ really are going away on WM, I'm going to have to get my parents some Android phones.
