Nokia Pulse Discontinued For Symbian and N9; Desktop Client to be Discontinued as Well

wp_ss_20130201_0002Nokia Pulse is my all time favorite beta app that ever came through the Beta apps site. Unfortunately support for Symbian as well as Meego has been discontinued; meaning there will be no future updates or compatibility fixes. Users who have already downloaded the app will continue to use it, but the new layout (which uses single posts, rather than stories with comments) will not be available to users.

The desktop client will no longer be accessible via browser after March 5th, you can still use the web client on your mobile browser (provided its HTML5 capable).

With Windows Phone as our primary smartphone platform, naturally we are also focusing our primary development efforts for Nokia Pulse on it. That’s also the reason why we haven’t updated the Nokia Pulse clients for both Symbian and the N9 recently. Moving forward, we will now officially conclude the Nokia Pulse beta trial for Symbian and the N9 and will no longer offer the download option of Pulse for these platforms on Betalabs.

We truly appreciate the role the Symbian/N9 trial members have played in providing feedback on Nokia Pulse on these platforms, enabling us to learn from it and improve the application.

While we will conclude the public beta trial for Nokia Pulse on Symbian/N9, users that have already downloaded the beta for Symbian and N9 can still continue using the service. Please note, however, that these versions may be affected by upcoming backend changes that can impact the app performance and functionality.

As Nokia Pulse beta further evolves as a mobile messaging experience, we have also decided to discontinue the desktop web support for Pulse on March 5th, 2013.  After that date, you will no longer be able to access your Pulse conversations from the desktop web. Nokia Pulse will continue to be available on Nokia Lumia phones and all other Windows Phones via the Windows Phone Store. It will also be available on other smartphones such as iPhone and Android devices via your HTML5 enabled mobile browser at

We are very grateful for your feedback, suggestions and insights. Thank you for using and contributing to Nokia Pulse.
