Amazon Ended the Support for Its MP3 Locker

It’s not a huge surprise, then, that Amazon has made a decision to end a program that allowed customers to upload and listen to their own MP3 tracks. If you have a subscription plan and music in the cloud locker, you won’t be able to stream or download your MP3s after January 2019.

Amazon states that the music storage option is definitely ending. The service allowed Amazon customers to upload music to the company’s cloud infrastructure.

Amazon Music Storage subscription plans, which let users upload music from their desktop, laptop or mobile and stream them alongside the in-app on-demand and radio options, will be accepted until January 15, 2018. Amazon didn’t make a big fuss over this news but members were shown a notification that says free and premium plans on Amazon Music Storage Subscriptions will end.

The change won’t affect purchases from the Amazon MP3 store, or your Prime Music or Music Unlimited libraries. The songs are removed automatically after the year. It seems likely that Amazon will retire the service for good for subscribers. Paid subscribers will retain access to their music (until then) as long as they don’t let their membership lapse.

Hence the conclusion is – Amazon Music Storage subscription plans (free and paid) are being retired. New subscriptions will be accepted until January 15, 2018. You can upgrade your Amazon Music storage plan, until that time. If you upgrade your Amazon Music storage subscription, you can store up to 250,000 imported songs. If you choose to cancel the paid storage plan before the subscription ends, you may be eligible for a pro-rated refund on the balance of your paid plan.

It makes sense that Amazon plans to kill off support for Amazon Music Storage, a service that let you upload MP3s to the cloud so that you could download or stream them later as they are is closing their Music Locker for storing MP3s in the cloud.

As noticed and then reported, you can no longer upload tracks as of this week.

Well, watcha’ gonna do. We all miss our MP3s y’all.
