Amazon pulls Windows Phone app from search, but you can still get it for now

Amazon has confirmed that it has pulled its long-running Windows Phone app from the search results of the Windows Store. The company does not appear to have any plans to launch a similar app for Windows 10.

The removal of the Amazon app from the search results was first noticed a few day ago. The German-based site reports they have received an official response from Amazon. The (translated) statement said, in part:

The Shopping app is not available for Windows Phone for download. We recommend customers call via your mobile browser, where they have access to all the shopping features.It is our first priority to offer our customers the best possible shopping experience, so our shopping app is no longer available for Windows Phone.

It is important to point out that people who have already downloaded the Windows Phone Amazon app won't be affected and it will still continue to work. Most importantly, the app is still available via a direct link to the Windows Store page. There are no indications that a universal Windows 10 app from Amazon is coming soon meaning this may be the end of offical support for some tmie.

We've also reached out to Amazon for a comment and will update if any new news is given.
