Technology: Facebook has announced that it is shutting down its notification app Notify. The app was introduced in October last year. Facebook released the app only for iOS users. Now Facebook decided to kill it, and absorb all the supported technology into its other products.
"We will begin integrating Notify functionality into other Facebook products, like Messenger, and will be removing Notify from the App Store," technology blog Engadget reported quoting Facebook on Friday.
"Since launching Notify, we've learned a lot about how to make notifications as timely and relevant as possible and we heard from people using the app that Notify helped them stay informed about things they cared about throughout the day," it added.
"With more than 900 million people using Messenger each month, we think there is a great opportunity for publishers to reach even more people interested in real-time updates from their favorite sources," the blog added further.
The app apparently had 70 partners including Bloomberg, CNN, among others, who have now been notified about the move. Facebook has said that the technology powering Notify will be used in the social giant’s other products and Messenger tops that list.
