The Facebook app mobile app that was available till now was developed by Microsoft on behalf of Facebook.

Do you own a Windows 10 handset, now you can use the Microsoft Wallet with a compatible credit card by the tap-to-pay feature.

Google's product, Android Pay, finally arrived in the United Kingdom last month, and is open to customers of The Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society. Moreover, the new mobile payment feature will help make the Windows platform more attractive for app developers.

Battery life issues are still being experienced on a number of Windows Phone devices, including Lumia 830, 930 and 1520, and the company says that there's also a new bug causing Wi-Fi to disconnect all of a sudden.

The service is now only available to Windows Insiders in the United States but will become generally available over the summer, though an worldwide release date has not been revealed. In this case, the tool will detect the errant version and automatically guide the user through the process of upgrading to Pro and ensuing activation. The app got NFC support, bringing Windows 10 Mobile on par with Android and iOS in mobile payment services.

This version contains the power to make payments using the near-field communication technology (NFC) that powers mobile payments.

Microsoft to take eye off the ball with Windows Phone! The company has been innovating the way their devices function, and there have been several changes which have been introduced into the markets.

Naturally, it would also protect the user's key files and data and apps, although it's not clear how the tool would distinguish between the two.

The app is available for download on Windows 10-based PCs here.

The Activation Troubleshooter can be found inside the "Update & security" section of the Settings app in Windows 10. Like its rival platforms, namely Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, Microsoft Wallet allows smartphone-toting shoppers to pay for their groceries, dry cleaning, and other goods and services at compatible point-of-sale terminals.
