On a Microsoft forum page, the company announced that they will turn off mobile push notification services for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows 8.0 from February 20th this year, which is tomorrow.

An AFP journalist saw Yucel - looking exhausted but happy - return to his apartment in the Istanbul district of Besiktas. Erdogan had repeatedly personally described Yucel as a "terror agent", causing consternation in Germany.

We have always known that the Windows mobile platform will eventually reach the end of the line and it looks like the end is coming very soon. The blog post further mentioned that all Windows 7.5 and Windows 8.0 device users will no longer able to use the "Find my phone" feature on their handsets. Windows Phone 8.1 was released in mid-2014. The decision which let to this step is that in recent times, the number of Windows Phone users have switched to Android and iOS and it doesn't send a good message to the remaining Windows phone users. The company looked an bad lot as though it was transitioning to porting its own apps for the competition, iOS and Android, though Belfiore said current owners of its line could expect continued updates. In a series of tweets, Joe Belfiore, the company's corporate vice president in the operating system group system clearly confirmed that no Windows Phone will be upgraded with new features.
