Amazon, the world’s largest e-commerce platform, has updated its Android app. Moved menus, profile section, and settings page. Redesigning the look of the application, the company also improved its functionality and usability by tidying up all its functions.
The Amazon Android app is now more functional
The previous version of Amazon’s Android app had a menu on the left side. All settings for account options and products were included here. But on the menu everything was intertwined and not categorized. This made the application difficult to use.
Amazon has completely removed this menu with the new update. He added a tab bar with the Home, Profile, Cart, and Menu buttons to the bottom. Now all other transactions, along with account settings, customer service and products, can be done from this tab.
Amazon has also made changes to the app’s font. Increased the size of the posts on the Profile and Menu tabs. All these innovations were already available in the company’s iOS app. As of today, it has been offered to Android users.

Amazon also changed its controversial logo
Amazon introduced a new logo for its mobile apps in January. When the logo was carefully examined, it brought to mind the type of mustache called toothbrush moustache due to the blue stripe at the top. There are two historical names that identify with the type of mustache in question. One is Charlie Chaplin and the other is Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Users who looked at the app icon and likened the strip to Adolf Hitler’s moustache reacted to Amazon. Amazon was quick to respond to the controversy that has divided social media. In early March, the company removed the blue band strip and redesigned the app icon with a few small taps.
An Amazon spokesman said of the changes to the logo:
“We are always exploring new ways to please our customers. The new icon is used to create the new icon when customers start their shopping journey on their phones; we redesigned them to evoke anticipation, excitement and joy, just as they did when they saw our boxes on the doorsteps.” ..
The company has not commented on the Adolf Hitler analogy.
