Microsoft has ended its partnership with the online retailer to sell the Microsoft Store app, a move that comes at a time when many of its most popular online services are struggling.
Microsoft said Tuesday that it will stop supporting the store app in July 2019 and that customers can now access it on a mobile device.
Microsoft says that if you still have a copy of the Microsoft store app on your device, you can still access it through the web interface.
“While we appreciate the loyalty and excitement of the millions of customers who have downloaded the Microsoft App, it’s time to move on to a new, exciting journey,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming all new and existing customers to our Microsoft Store experience, including those looking for more value in our new services and our growing portfolio of online services.”
The decision comes as Amazon, Apple, and Google struggle to regain the trust of their users.
The store app is the most popular way for customers to purchase and sell Microsoft products online.
While the app has a growing number of customers, Microsoft said that it expects that many of those customers will be customers of other retailers, not Microsoft.
Microsoft also said that its new apps will continue to provide users with access to many of the services offered by Microsoft.
“The Microsoft Store is one of the most successful and influential apps for connecting with customers and businesses around the world, with more than 30 million downloads and over 100 million active monthly active users,” Microsoft said in its statement.
