    - Also with voice recognition you had, Song recognition (8.1). No need to speak to Cortana
    - Camera - no panorama picture

    I knew Cortana and speech to text works well in French, it was one of main developed languages as far as English, Chinese, Jap, Spanish, German, Portoguese (and very very very last) Italian
    Kids corner was removed, according to Microsoft, due to "too much unused to justify future developments"
    For camera, did you tried 360 app ?

    Also something I just realized that's a daily frustration, when cortana searches it just uses the web browser to pull up stuff, so now things like the local section don't exist and it won't pull up a map for finding let's say restaurants in the area.

    I do find it annoying that you can't go to the bing homepage. At some point, I guess they will rebrand Bing.com as Cortana.com and replace the backgrounds with a blue circle. At that point, I will probably go back to Google search entirely.

    Cortana doesn't work in French Canada... yet, Also the music recognition was fast and easy, no need to ask a Question to Cortana.
    Yes I have tried 360app, but why do we need two or tree app to have simple feature.
    Kids Cornet work and is simple, if it has low usage it's because people didn't know it was there.

    Send feedback to MS , Bing honestly is such a dumb name. Cortana is nice

    I really miss Cortana turning on Quiet Hours when your calendar event is marked as busy. I used it all the time, bring it back.

    I don't get the removal of FM radio. I never used it, but is the maintenance cost really that high?

    Mainly hubs, pivots, and Zune. Xbox music and Groove still don't compare.

    I really miss the Rooms feature where our family shared pictures, texts, calendars and OneNote shopping lists. It was so great to do this in one place instead of having to use separate apps. That and dirt cheap price of Lumia 521 was what made us switch to WP. Still on it, but I do miss Rooms...

    We used Kids Corner on a daily basis, my kids knew that that is their part so thank you for removing it. There was no development anyway so I do not really understand why it had to be removed... did it take too much space or what?

    Two features that are going are fm radio and kids corner, but that is in the redstone builds which aren't over. Are insiders upvoting for keeping them? If you're not, they will disappear

    FM radio functionality was not removed. Only the app was removed. Install another one.

    Well for me HERE apps used to be part of Lumia features and we use the offline maps & transit heavily for years. Then few months back they stopped the updates so we will never see them in UWP.

    I kind of miss the Games hub too as it declutters/minimizes app list.

    Photo hub too... sometimes the only facebook photos I want to see is from the posts of my custom group or phone contacts.

    Change is only good if it's for the better. Some things in W10M are an improvement over previous versions but a whole lot are beyond stupid (UI, circle profile pictures, etc).

    Stuff I miss from WP:

    People/Games/Pictures/Me hubs

    Bright accent colors (the accent colors in W10M are so drab)

    No games in the app list (we don't even get an option to filter them out)

    Auto-hiding system tray

    Swipe right to access camera roll

    Smooth turnstile animations (now it looks like Android)

    A well designed UI (no clunky hamburger menus)

    Err.. I know of alternatives.

    I thought this thread was titled "Removed features : what do you miss the most ?" and not "Removed features : what do you miss the most and alternatives ?"

    I was wondering why a good part of the OS was removed. What good is an OS if we need to depend on third party apps for the most basic features ?
    They removed the FM radio app, now those who want to listen to FM have to depend on third party apps ??

    WTF MSFT ?

    Remove the phone and messaging apps as well. Let us depend on third party to provide apps for this crappy OS.

    I love Windows 10.
    id love the removal of so many other apps to make os less heavy and also to have them on the store for those who may need them., cause most of them are useless to me
