Talabat to shut down Zomato UAE’s food ordering mobile application, starting November 24, and Zomato users will automatically be directed to the Talabat mobile application to order food.
Zomato UAE employees’ jobs are reportedly at risk due to the change, but Talabat will assist employees in “transitioning” by providing a severance package, a Talabat spokesperson confirmed. The email states that Zomato will also reimburse all outstanding debts for restaurants by December 20. This includes unpaid advertising debts. With the discontinuation of the Zomato mobile app, Vibe Check, a new “discovery platform,” will go live. The app, which works similarly to Instagram Stories, has already undergone testing in India.
