Amazon Drive will close at the end of 2023
Amazon has disclosed that it is shutting down its cloud storage service as part of another effort by the internet behemoth to consolidate. Customers of Amazon Drive have received emails from the corporation confirming the end-of-year closure of the service. The move is part of Amazon’s attempt to make its Amazon Photos service the primary site for storing photos and videos. Existing Amazon customers’ photos and videos were automatically saved to Amazon Photos; however, they must retrieve all of their files before the deadline.
Starting on January 31, 2023, the service will be completely functional, but starting on January 31, 2023, the business claims it will no longer support file uploads to the Amazon Drive website. The Amazon Photos app is currently accessible for iOS, Android, and PC users, and current Amazon Prime members receive free, limitless full-resolution photos and 5GB of video storage. There is 5GB of free photo and video storage available to non-Prime users.
New Amazon Photos subscribers will have a choice of monthly and yearly storage rates. Users may see photographs on Amazon devices like the Fire TV, Echo Show, and Fire Tablets with this service, and Amazon Prime members can add up to five family members to their Family Vault to obtain “unlimited photo storage and collect photos together.”
