Amazon to shut down Amazon Drive

Amazon Drive service launched in March 2011. Amazon was earlier confirmed that uploading files will no longer be available after January 31, 2023, and related services are expected to end technical support after December 31, 2023.

For the app content provided by Android and iOS devices, Amazon said that it will be removed from the shelves after October 31 this year, and users will not be able to download it again in the Google Play Store or Apple Store.
The Amazon Drive service early provided 5GB of free space, allowing users to store personal digital photos, and files. The main competitors at the time included Windows Live SkyDrive (later renamed SkyDrive), the predecessor of Microsoft OneDrive, and Picasa, an online photo album space service acquired by Google earlier. Amazon Drive competed with services such as Google Drive later.
In addition to announcing the closure of Amazon Drive, Amazon also announced that it will replace the original Amazon Drive service with Amazon Photos, and advertised that it can provide better and safer to share photos and videos.
Amazon Photos currently offers 100GB, 1TB, and 2TB storage capacity options, and the service subscription costs are $1.99 per month, $6.99 per month, and $11.99 per month, respectively.
