As promised, Microsoft shuts down the Lumia Beamer app for Windows Phone

Microsoft announced earlier this year it would be shutting down a number of its Windows Phone apps, including Lumia Beamer, and today that particular app was updated to effectively retire it from circulation.

Lumia Beamer was first developed and released by Nokia, under the Nokia Beamer label. It launched just over two years ago and allowed Lumia Windows Phone devices to beam its displayed content on any screen. Microsoft renamed the app to Lumia Beamer when it acquired Nokia's Devices and Services division in 2014.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
