Uber ends support for its Windows 10 app

If you've noticed some issues using Uber's app for Windows 10 PC and mobile lately, don't expect them to be corrected. The ridesharing service says it is no longer supporting its app on Windows, meaning no updates are planned and current issues will go unrepaired.

There's no official announcement to be found, but, as first reported by MSPU, Uber support recently confirmed the move. In place of the Windows app, Uber recommends that users take advantage of the app on iPhone and Android. From Uber:

Yes, we're no longer supporting app on Windows. You can use Uber with the following smart devices instead:

  • iPhone (iOS 7 or newer)
  • Android (Jelly Bean or newer)

A number of recent reviews indicate that the app has ceased to function correctly, citing issues that are now unlikely to be fixed. And given that Windows 10 Mobile is essentially dead at this point, it's not surprising to see that Uber has opted to drop its Universal Windows Platform app, impacting both PC and mobile in the process.
