Google is shutting down its mobile Shopping apps for both iOS and Android and directing users to its web Shopping site instead. 

Xda Developers discovered that the term “sunset” had been added to several strings of code in the Shopping app, suggesting the apps were being discontinued.

A Google spokesperson said that the apps will continue to function 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. We’ll continue building features within the Shopping tab and other Google surfaces, including the Google app.”

The app allowed users to choose from among thousands of online stores and make purchases using their Google accounts. One user found the Android app to be working normally on Sunday, whereas others were already seeing a “something went wrong” message when they tried to use the app.

The mobile Shopping app is just the latest Google product to get the axe— Reader, Hangouts, Plus— the list goes on.
