The Talk.to team has published an article on the official blog, detailing plans to cease support for third party messaging services. Google Talk, Facebook and Windows Live played an important role when the service launched back in 2012, but the team notes it's difficult to guarantee a fast and reliable service when external platforms are supported. So how is this going to affect users of the platform?

The popular Talk.to Messenger app for Windows Phone has been updated with some interesting features and is a great solution if you use Google Talk on the go.

If you're into the app and service to keep in touch with contacts, you'll love some of the new features in this latest release. We're looking at lockscreen support in a freely available solution. Talk.to Messenger can now tap into one of five notification spots on the main locksreen and display a counter. Simple but effective.

Talk.to, the popular cross-platform messenger, is on its way to the Windows Phone Marketplace. According to its download page, the Windows Phone app is "coming soon". Talk.to enables users to send messages using a number of third-party services. Facebook, Google Talk, and more are supported. Should you enjoy using the big screen, native desktop clients for both Windows and Mac are available, as well as use via a web browser.

Talk.to states on the website that it offers free SMS for both sending and receiving. Group messaging and read / delivered notifications are also present. Using Live Tiles, the simplistic typography look and feel, and toast notifications, we're pretty excited to see what the team can do on the Windows Phone platform. More apps is never a bad thing either.

Currently available for both the iPhone and Android smartphones, it'll be great to see such a solution on Windows Phone.
