Ring Video Doorbell app to stop working with Windows 10 Mobile in April

It's time to say bye to the Ring Video Doorbell app on Windows 10 Mobile. In an email being sent out to users, Ring says that its app will no longer work on Windows 10 Mobile devices after April 10.

Though the mobile app may be retiring, Ring says that it will continue to support its Windows 10 app for devices on the Fall Creators Update or newer. From Ring:

Hi Neighbor,We're reaching out to let you know that the Ring App will no longer work on Windows 10 mobile devices after April 10, 2018. However, you can still monitor your home and review Ring videos with any desktop computers, laptops and tablets equipped with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (Version 1709) or newer.

Going forward, if you want to set up or use a Ring device with a mobile phone, you'll have to do so on an Android or iOS phone.

It's no surprise that Ring would drop support for Windows 10 Mobile. While Microsoft may be cooking up new ideas for the mobile space, Windows 10 Mobile is effectively dead at this point. Ring is just the latest app to end its support for the platform. The good news, however, is that things should continue as normal for anyone using the app on PC.
