As has happened for Windows Mobile in the past few months, the official Facebook app has also been removed from Microsoft Store for Windows 10 PCs and tablets.
Goodbye to the Facebook app for Windows 10?
After a few emails circulating in the past weeks that wanted the end of support on February 28th. The stable and beta versions of the apps were removed from the Microsoft Store without any particular notice. For those who have already installed them, they continue to work. But it is no longer possible to download them, leaving access via browser as the only alternative.
Since you use Facebook for Windows desktop app, we wanted to make sure you’re aware this app will stop working on Friday, February 28, 2020. You can still access all of your friends and favorite Facebook features by logging in through your browser at www.facebook.com.
For the best experience, make sure you’re using the most current version of our supported browsers including the new Microsoft Edge.
You can still access Messenger through the Facebook website or by logging in through your browser at www.messenger.com. If you prefer a desktop app for your conversations, try the new Messenger for Windows which you can download now in the Microsoft Store.
