Facebook Paper will no longer be supported after July 31. The app has already been removed from Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS App Store and it was never made available on devices running Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOG,NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android.

The Facebook Paper app was designed to allow users to read news articles from their smartphones. It came out in early 2014, but hasn’t been among the top 1,5000 downloaded apps since late that year, reports Fortune.

Attempts to visit the Facebook Paper webpage on Friday resulted in a message claiming that the page isn’t available.
