Upcoming changes to FeedBurner

Google
Beginning in July, 2021, FeedBurner will go into maintenance mode. Existing feeds will continue to serve indefinitely, and existing users can download past usage statistics and email subscriptions. Users will still be able to create new accounts and burn new feeds. However, some existing features, like email subscriptions and detailed analytics, will no longer be supported.

FeedBurner has been a part of Google for almost 14 years, and now Google is making several 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, Google will be 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.
