FeedBurner has been a part of Google for almost 14 years, and we're making several upcoming changes to support the product's next chapter. If you use FeedBurner to manage your RSS feeds, here's what you can expect to change and what you can do now to ensure that you’re prepared.
Starting in July, we are transitioning FeedBurner onto a more stable, modern infrastructure. This will keep the product up and running for all users, but it also means that we will be turning down most non-core feed management features, including email subscriptions, at that time. For those who use FeedBurner to manage email subscriptions, we recommend downloading your email subscribers so that you can migrate to a new email subscription service. This data will also still be available for download after July.
For many users, no action is required. All existing feeds will continue to serve uninterrupted, and you can continue to create new accounts and burn new feeds. Core feed management functionality will continue to be supported, such as the ability to change the URL, source feed, title, and podcast metadata of your feed. Basic analytics on feed requests and the ability to create enclosure tags for MP3 files will also continue to be supported.
We're glad that these changes allow us to keep FeedBurner up and running, but we also realize that changes like these can mean extra work to find alternate solutions, which is why we wanted to inform you early. Check out the FeedBurner Help Center to learn more about the changes and next steps.
