What you need to know
- Remix 3D is shutting down according to a recent report.
- All of the service's content will be deleted when the shutdown occurs.
- There is no word on the status of Paint 3D.
Updated July 10, 2019: Microsoft has now confirmed the shutdown in an email to users. While the site will be fully retired on January 10, 2020, no new uploads to the site or from other apps will be allowed starting August 7, 2019. You can find more information on the shutdown at Microsoft's FAQ page. The original story follows.
Microsoft is planning on shutting down Remix 3D. The service designed for uploading and downloading content made in Paint 3D will shut down on January 10, 2020 according to a report from Thurrott.com.
You're right. Here is how it will look like: pic.twitter.com/h8kvIuSFJm— Rudy Huyn (@RudyHuyn) July 10, 2019
According to Walking Cat and Huyn, a banner will soon appear on Remix 3D announcing the service's shutdown date of January 10, 2020. Importantly, all content on the service will be deleted, including any content that you've uploaded yourself. If you'd like to keep your content you will have to download it before January 10, 2020.
Remix 3D relies on Paint 3D, and it must not have gained the traction that Microsoft's leadership hoped for. Paint 3D has many nice features, but Microsoft kept the classic version of Paint around and Paint 3D isn't very popular.
While Remix 3D is being retired according to the data uncovered, there's no word yet on the status of Paint 3D. There's a chance that Microsoft will leave it to be used by anyone who enjoys it. After all, it is a solid program for both 2D and 3D creation.
