Voxer released its first app  for the Windows Phone 8 platform back in 2014, allowing you to instantly and easily communicate with one friend or a group of friends.

No major update has been released after Voxer was launched, but that didn’t stop the application from functioning. Unfortunately, its developers have finally confirmed that the Voxer App for Windows Phone 8 will stop functioning on September 26, 2016. The main reasons behind this decision are the infrastructure changes Microsoft introduced to its Mobile platform.

Voxer users received the following email:

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.

As you can see, you will still be able to use the Voxer account on the web via Firefox and Chrome — both of which are not Microsoft’s browsers.
