Since yesterday Microsoft paint is all in the news and probably you know the reason. Well for a recap, yesterday the Redmond based software giants announced that the Microsoft paint will be ‘deprecated’. This will happen with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators update. Most of us thought that Microsoft will ‘kill’ the paint app at the first glance. Media publications around the world reported the same. But that’s not true.
In a new report, MSpoweruser claims that Microsoft is not killing the Paint application at all. They will be deprecating the application. Which means that app will not have any active development and therefore, it will not receive any updates. It also means that Microsoft ‘can’ remove the app from the core Windows 10 operating system in future. But that does not mean they will completely kill the application.
A Microsoft spokesperson yesterday said that Instead of completely killing the Paint app they will bring it to the Windows Store from where interested users and fans of the app will still be able to download and use the app. He further added,
MS Paint is not going away. In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing and 2D creation are in Paint 3D – the new app for creativity, available for free with the Windows 10 Creators update. In the future, we will offer MS Paint in the Windows Store also for free and continue to provide new updates and experiences to Paint 3D so people have the best creative tools all in one place.
While we still don’t know any exact date or time frame when the Paint application will be launching on Windows Store but we think it is not far away from launch. It should shortly release after the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update later this year.
Till then let us know if you prefer Paint 3D over general Paint App?
