Wind Tre to phase out Veon app next month

Monday 27 August 2018 | 08:35 CET | News
Italian operator Wind Tre has begun informing customers that it will be shutting down its Veon app next month after less than two years, reports website Mobile World. The platform was launched by Wind at the end of 2016 and includes an app for messaging, VoIP and a range of often zero-rated offers from the company and partners. Wind said at the time that the platform would eventually replace the MyWind customer services platform. However, the company has now sent an SMS to users informing them that all the services offered by the Veon app will be discontinued starting 24 September.
