Amazon has already announced it will withdraw its Windows phone app in August, but it appears the retail giant isn’t giving up on Windows. Recent reports confirm that Amazon is already working on a new Windows phone app, aimed at providing the best possible customer experience for Windows users.

Amazon hasn’t revealed when the new app will be launched, and hasn’t offered more details about its features.

As many customers are asking for an improved Amazon App for Windows Phone, we have to launch [a] new app.

Please rest assured our team is working on the new app. It may take some time but we will definitely get the new app soon.

We’ll soon be retiring the App you currently have on your Windows Phone, meaning its contents will no longer be updated. You’ll still have access to the App until 15 August 2016.

I’m sorry for any disappointment this may cause.

We are already working on it, and we will directly update you via email once it’s complete.

Most likely, this will be a UWP Windows 10 app since this appears to be the trend adopted by the majority of developers and by Microsoft itself. In this manner, Windows phone users are encouraged to upgrade to Microsoft’s latest Mobile OS.

However, many Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 phone users will be very disappointed if Amazon doesn’t offer support for this OS version as well. Windows Phone as a 3.26% market share, and Windows 8 and 8.1 have a total market share of 2%, therefore the number of Windows 8 + users it not to be ignored.

Amazon is not the only company who decided to withdraw their Windows Phone apps. PayPal also ended support for Windows phones on June 30, and announced it would not release a Windows 10 app.
