Microsoft will Shut Down Wunderlist, its Cloud-Based Task Management App

Microsoft will ax its cloud-based task management platform, Wunderlist, in early May of next year, advising users to migrate over to its To Do app…

After a two and-a-half year run under Microsoft, task management program Wunderlist will come to an end as of May 6th, 2020.

Microsoft Shuttering Wunderlist on May 6th, 2020

Microsoft made the announcement on the website of the platform, with a short message reading, “Wunderlist goes away on May 6, 2020. Make the move to Microsoft To Do. It’s a snap to switch. We’ll be with you every step of the way.”

For those unfamiliar, Wunderlist is a desktop and mobile task management application. It’s free to use but does have a paid, premium option. 

Microsoft acquired it in June of 2015 from Berlin-based startup 6Wunderkinder, just four years after its creation in 2011. At the time of its purchase by Microsoft, it boasted more than 13 million users worldwide.

But, it’s new existence over at the software company would be short-lived. Microsoft announced in April 2017 it would eventually kill off the application in favor of To Do, a new multi-platform app developed by the Wunderlist team that has direct integration with the company’s Office 365 service.

So, users have less than five months to transition over to another service.
