AOL recently announced that Winamp would be retired on December 20, but a report claimed that Microsoft could actually buy the application and thus save it before it goes dark.
Of course, the news came via unofficial sources, so we’ve reached out to Redmond to find out whether this is true or not.
A Microsoft spokesperson told us that the company
has nothing to share on this, which is not at all surprising given the fact that the tech giant usually remains tight-lipped on future acquisitions.
On the other hand, this could be a sign that Microsoft is actually interested in taking over Winamp. History proved us that whenever reports of a new Microsoft acquisition were false, the company was quick
to deny speculation.
