Google is closing down its mobile Shopping applications for the two iOS and Android and guiding clients to its web Shopping site instead, 9to5 Google revealed. On Friday, Xda Developers found that the term “sunset” had been added to a few strings of code in the Shopping application, recommending the applications were being discontinued.
A Google representative told 9to5 Google that the applications will keep on working through June. “Within the next few weeks, we’ll no longer be supporting the Shopping app. All of the functionality the app offered users is available on the Shopping tab,” the spokesperson said. We’ll continue building features within the Shopping tab and other Google surfaces, including the Google app.” The shopping.google.com site will stay active.
The application permitted clients to browse among a large number of online stores and make buys utilizing their Google accounts. to rapidly shop across a huge number of stores and buy stuff utilizing your Google Account. This client discovered the Android application to be working ordinarily on Sunday, yet a few clients were at that point seeing a “something went wrong” message when they attempted to utilize the Shopping application.
The mobile Shopping application is only the most recent Google product to get the axe—Reader (actually mad about that one), Hangouts, Plus—the list goes on.
