Windows Phone Mango wont support in app purchasesSome folks had pretty high expectations for the upcoming Windows Phone Mango update that is said to arrive later this fall, with whispers of in-app purchases being enabled making their rounds on the Internet. Unfortunately, Microsoft has decided to shoot down such rumors with an official announcement, claiming that the feature will NOT arrive on Mango – despite saying it is a priority, but we guess the priority is not high enough to warrant such a move.

Perhaps the update after Mango will offer something like that? According to Microsoft employee Todd Brix, while said feature was a high priority for the Mango update, it “didn’t make the cut.” Developers might groan at this announcement since it closes up one channel to make money off users, and for users, they might feel the ‘pain’ more acutely since they will be unable to perform microtransactions from in-app purchases which is available on other platforms.
