Amazon India to shut “Prime Now”

According to Gadgets360, the company plans to integrate the “Prime Now” features in its primary Amazon app. As per the report, Amazon users have downloaded the Prime Now app “over 10 million” times on Google Play Store. We are not sure about the numbers of the iOS side. The company noted that it will add all the features of the app in its existing Amazon Fresh section.
