Microsoft to stop push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0

Microsoft announced that starting tomorrow, February 20, smartphone users running Windows Phone 7.5 or Windows Phone 8.0 will no longer have access to push notifications.

Notification services would continue to work on Windows Phone 8.1 "at this time", Microsoft added, while all functionality will continue to be regular for Windows 10 Mobile.

Turning off Mobile push notifications would mean that users on the older version of Windows Phone will no longer get any notifications for any messages or emails received apart from their Live Tile also not being updated regularly.
