Why are the Stack Exchange mobile app download buttons still appearing in emails? This screenshot:

Confirms that. These two posts all say that the Stack Exchange mobile app is no longer supported, and that first one was from eight months ago. Can we please remove those buttons?


As pointed out in ShadowWizard's answer, the text pointing to the download buttons should also be removed.

    The Android app has also been removed, so that link is now 404. Commented Sep 29, 2020 at 21:48
  • @SonictheMaskedWerehog The link in the email, you mean? Not in my post?

    @Sonic all the more reason to remove. It's just taking up space now.

    That kinda makes me sad, even if it was inevitable. And there's still no good way to get notifications other than that... Commented Sep 30, 2020 at 6:12

Thank you to everyone who brought this to our attention. We've removed the mobile app icon from all of our email templates.

Just to avoid an embarrassing mistake, the whole part that refers to the mobile apps should go away, not just the download buttons:
