On April 9, 2021, the developer community site XDA Developers reported that the 'Google Shopping' app had added code containing a message notifying it of the end of service. Below is the actual code. 'The app is unavailable right now, but you can continue shopping on shopping.google.com ( current application is not available. If you want to use is, Shopping.Google.Com please visit)' contains a sentence that ..

In fact, when using the app version of Google Shopping, it was confirmed that the sentence 'There was a problem' was displayed. Furthermore, since the character string 'sunset' included in this tag was used when Google abolished the application, when 9to5Google, which mainly handles Google news, contacted Google, Google directly contacted Google. 'We will end support for the app version of Google Shopping in April 2021. All the functions that the app provides to users are available in the web browser,' he said.

The app version and the web browser version of Google Shopping had almost the same functionality except for a part of the UI, but the app version was developed with Flutter, a mobile app framework made by Google. Therefore, 9to5Google points out that the aim is to save engineering resources by stopping the development of the application version and consolidating it into the web browser version.
