Home » News » Unigram App could soon be removed from the Microsoft Store

If you’re a Unigram App user, you won’t like what you’re about to read. Recent changes in Microsoft Store’s policies could force Unigram App devs to permanently remove it from the Store.

Microsoft sent Unigram devs a notification asking them to update the app by April, 11 in order to keep it in the Store.

The Redmond giant mentions that apps that require app-specific authentication must be published from a company or business account type. However, this is a major issue for Unigram since the app is built by the community for the community, so there is no legal entity behind it.

Hopefully this won’t be Unigram’s end

At this point in time, there is no need to panic. Unigram’s devs still got a few days to find a solution and keep the app in the Store.

Many users already suggested that complying to Microsoft’s demands and starting a company is the easiest and safest solution to follow:

Over here in germany starting a small company is about 30€. Maybe there is something similar in Italy? With that you could request a company acc and keep Unigram going.

Other users suggest that this is nothing but typical behavior from Microsoft and are ironically wondering if the company’s also planning to ban all third-party apps altogether.

Microsoft being Microsoft again and shooting themselves in the foot. Would be fun to get #SuicidalMicrosoft somewhat trending among devs to teach them a lesson.What’s next? No third party apps at all?

We’ll keep an eye on this story and update this article as soon as new information is available.
