Microsoft to drop support for Rooms feature on Windows Phone in June

In an email sent out to users today, Microsoft announced that support for the Rooms feature on Windows Phone will end in June. The company originally announced support for Rooms would end in March, but it seems that deadline was pushed out a few more months.

From Microsoft:

"You may previously have received an email from Windows Phone or seen news about the rooms feature for Windows Phone being discontinued soon. While we decided to keep it around a little longer than we'd originally planned, support for rooms will end in June 2015. Once support ends, you'll still be able to view and use your room photo albums, calendars, and notes—but you will no longer be able to create new rooms or have access to chats."

As originally planned, Microsoft notes that users on Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 will continue to be able to view and use room photo albums, calendar, and notes. However, you will no longer be able to create new rooms, send messages, or create new events after the June deadline. If you happen to be on the Windows 10 Insider Preview for phones, Rooms will no longer show up on your phone, but you'll still be able to access your content on the web.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
