Voxer push-to-talk messaging app for Windows Phone will no longer work after Sept. 26

The makers of the push-to-talk messaging app Voxer has announced that, due to a change in its infrastructure, the Windows Phone version of the app "will no longer function for most" users after Monday, September 26.

Voxer launched its app for Windows Phone 8 in 2013, and allowed users to save their voice messages in their timeline, along with the ability to send photos and text. Voxer Windows Phone users got the following email message this week (which incorrectly states the app launched in 2014):

When we launched the Voxer app in the Windows Store in 2014 we were amazed by the number of avid WP8 users that started using the platform. A lot has changed since 2014. Microsoft has moved to WP10 as it's core mobile offering. The number of users on WP8 has been steadily decreasing. As a result, Voxer can no longer support WP8 devices. We will be doing some infrastructure upgrades starting Monday, September 26, 2016. Unfortunately that means that the Voxer app will no longer function for most WP8 users. You may continue to access your Voxer account via our web product, available for Chrome and Firefox browsers. We are constantly updating and improving our iOS and Android apps as well. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes and thank you for using Voxer.

Voxer has not indicated it has any plans to launch a Windows 10 Mobile version of its app.

Thanks to Jamison and Jason for the tip!
