Xiaomi has been developing Xiaomi Cloud for a long time. Like iCloud on iPhone, the service allows you to upload photos and videos from your smartphone gallery to the cloud thanks to the Gallery Sync feature. But that will change soon — at least for global users.

On the official website of Xiaomi Cloud, they noticed a post about the imminent termination of Gallery Sync. It seems that they were going to publish it later: instead of specific dates and deadlines, there are stubs in the message, and soon after the discovery, access to the page was closed. But screenshots on the web stayed:

Although there is no exact date in the publication, the year stands — and this is 2022. Users who previously saved their photos and videos in the Xiaomi cloud will still be able to synchronize data — but through Google Photos.

In order to keep existing photos and videos, Xiaomi will offer a convenient way to transfer existing Gallery Sync content to Google Photos. In addition, users will be able to upload data from Xiaomi Cloud to a mobile device or PC.

The post mentions that the Google Photos migration window will close sometime in 2023. After that, all existing Gallery Sync data saved in the Xiaomi cloud will be permanently deleted.

In addition, Xiaomi will cancel Xiaomi Cloud subscriptions and users will receive their money back. At the same time, disabling other Xiaomi Cloud functions, such as synchronizing and backing up other data (contacts, messages, notes, etc.) is out of the question in the original message.
