WINBETA.ORG reports that the FM tuner app that had been included with versions of MICROSOFT's WINDOWS PHONE OS through the early versions of WINDOWS PHONE 10 is being discontinued, according to a tweet from WINDOWS Insider engineering project manager JASON GRIEVES, who confirmed to a user that in the latest builds of the OS and moving forward, the app has been removed.
"FM Radio has been removed from dev branch builds and is being cut. May use third party radio apps from store," GRIEVES tweeted.
The latest WINDOWS PHONE handsets still include an FM tuner but will need a third party app to access the tuner; the most recent major WINDOWS PHONE release for the Lumia 950 handset did not include the tuner app.
