Microsoft dropping support for Rooms feature on Windows Phones in March
Microsoft has announced today that it will be dropping support for the Rooms feature on Windows Phones in March. In an email sent out to users, the company notes that you'll still be able to interact with your room photo albums, calendars, and notes, but you won't be able to create new rooms, make membership or permission changes, or send new messages after the March deadline.
While the shared items and files will still remain accessible on Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 devices, things are a little different if you've jumped onto the Windows 10 for phones preview. From Microsoft:
Microsoft doesn't say exactly when in March it will drop support, so it would probably be a good idea to start backing up any files and chats that you care about now.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
