Amazon has sent out a notification to Amazon Drive customers reminding them that Amazon Drive is shutting down in December 2023. The news isn’t new, it was first announced back in July, and Amazon Drive apps for Android and iOS have already been taken down. But the notification serves as a reminder to make sure you’ve got everything downloaded and backed up and that you won’t be able to upload new files soon.
On January 31st 2023, Amazon Drive will no longer allow uploads of new files. You’ll still be able to download files, of course, and you shouldn’t lose any of your photos. The company is also urging people to not delete their photos from Amazon Drive as this will also result in their deletion from Amazon Photos. Photos from Amazon Drive were automatically saved to Amazon Photos a few months ago.
