Google plans to shut down its mobile Shopping apps for both iOS and Android devices. The tech giant rolled out its update to the app back in 2019 and now confirms to shut down its service to focus on the web experience.
As reported by 9to5mac, this change is made as Google is planning to expand its shopping functionality in Search, Image Search, and YouTube, and “increasingly leveraging augmented reality.” However, clients will continue to work through June.
In a statement to 9To5 by Google:
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. We’ll continue building features within the Shopping tab and other Google surfaces, including the Google app, that make it easy for people to discover and shop for the products they love.
Google service app allowed users to search for products on online shopping websites and compare prices between different vendors. It permits users to make purchases using their Google accounts.
