Last year, Microsoft announced that the company will end support on December 10, 2019 for Windows 10 mobile. After 10th December 2019 which is also a few days away from now, Windows 10 Mobile users will no longer be eligible to receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free assisted support options or online technical content updates from Microsoft for free.

Now, in its latest post, Microsoft announced that the company is also dropping support for first-party apps for Windows 10 Mobile from 12th January 2021. The Office apps—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, will no longer receive security updates, non-security hotfixes, free assisted support options or online technical content updates from Microsoft.

Although, this is only limited to Windows 10 Mobile users and other platforms including Android and iOS will remain unaffected.

In its statement, Microsoft said:

Microsoft remains committed to providing a great Office experience on phones for consumer, commercial, education, and government users through the iOS and Android apps which continue to be supported. You can get the Office iOS and Android apps through the app stores for those platforms.

Microsoft also stated that it will provide bug fixes and security fixes to support the product experience through the end of this lifecycle. On 12th January 2021 onward, you will no longer be able to install these Office apps on your Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft also recommended its users switch to Android or iOS, if you want to get the latest updates and security updates.
