Microsoft’s plan to replace HockeyApp with Visual Studio App Center, will require the total closure of HockeyApp. Microsoft acquired the startup behind HockeyApp back in 2014. And if you’re still using HockeyApp, the service will officially close down on November 16, 2019.
HockeyApp is a service that let user distribute beta versions of their app, get crash reports and analytics. There are other similar SDKs, such as Google’s Crashlytics, TestFairy, Appaloosa, DeployGate and native beta distribution channels (Apple’s TestFlight and Google Play Store’s beta feature).
Microsoft is most likely to release more information about Its Visual Studio App Center before HockeyApp shuts down completely on November 16, 2019.
