Microsoft has officially announced the closure of its Project Astoria software tool that was originally announced last year. The tool was originally introduced by the software giant as a way for developers to port existing Android apps to the new Windows 10 platform by utilizing the same codebase of the existing apps.

The immediate closure of the project represents a fairly significant setback in the company's efforts to bolster the app offering on Windows 10 Mobile.

That figure may now be in decline thanks to instant messaging tools like WhatsApp, but it's still an extremely popular form of communication. It seems that Microsoft has recognized that importance, and will look to provide users with the functionality in Windows 10 to be able to send texts directly from a PC to a phone.
