Amazon has announced it is shutting down its standalone Prime Now fast delivery app at the end of the year.

Users who want fast delivery on their grocery and other orders will be able to do so through the Amazon app or the website.

The Prime Now service was launched in 2014 with the aim to deliver a range of goods including books, groceries, toys and household items in under two hours.

The service is currently operational in 5,000 cities and towns and the ecommerce giant uses dedicated Prime Now fulfilment centres to handle the large volume of orders.
