Google Shopping will not be available as an application on mobile devices. However, its web version is still available. Microsoft recently confirmed that it will discontinue support for the Shopping app on Android and iOS. The application will run for a few months, and then it will shut down completely. Google Shopping was launched to compete with competitors such as Amazon, where shoppers are shown links to websites from which they can purchase the goods they need.
The closure was first discovered by XDA Developers. Gadget 360 also cannot download the Google Shopping app from the Google Play store on any of our Android smartphones. Google confirmed to 9to5Google: “In the next few weeks, we will no longer support the shopping application. All the features that the application provides to users can be found on the “Shopping” tab. We will continue to “Shopping” Labels and other Google interfaces (including Google apps) are built into features that make it easy for people to discover and buy products they like.”
The mobile application and web version of Google Shopping have a similar interface and experience, so it is understandable why Google may want to terminate the application altogether. This comes when Google intends to save engineering resources.
This Home Feeds on Google Shopping can provide users with recommended products that may be of interest to them. Saved The label shows the products that the user has added to their wish list, and Notice The tab displays updates to user orders and promotions. cart Labels can guide users to start their purchase process.
Google Shopping was launched for US users in July 2019 and for Indian users in December, aiming to compete with Amazon. However, Google doesn’t want to build its own warehouse to stock products, but instead directs shoppers to select retailers such as Costco and Target. Later that year, Google added new features, such as customer service support, price tracking, local store inventory lists, options that can be purchased directly from Google, etc.
