microsoft-logoIt looks like with all the fanfare that surrounded Windows 10 just recently, it does not seem as though Microsoft is about to put in all that much effort to make Windows Phone a priority for the year 2016. Of course, this particular bit of information should not come across as a surprise, since Windows 10 on smartphones are not a top priority for the company as well – which goes to show how much further down Windows Phone is on the software giant’s priority list.

Windows chief Terry Myerson share with The Verge after the Microsoft keynote was over at the Build developers conference, where Myerson admitted that “If you wanted to reach a lot of phone customers, Windows Phone isn’t the way to do it.”

Apart from that, Myerson also mentioned, “We’re fully committed to that 4-inch screen, there will be a time for it to be our focus, but right now it’s part of the family but it’s not the core of where I hope to generate developer interest over the next year. There’s no lack of recognition to realize how important that form factor is, but for Microsoft with Windows and for our platform it’s the wrong place for us to lead.”
