In the midst of regular announcements related to expansion of Airtel 5G Plus in new regions, Bharti Airtel has decided to silently discontinue its cloud storage facility which was available to all customers through the Airtel Thanks app. 

Airtel is sending out push notifications alerting users about the new development and asking them to download all their data stored in Airtel Cloud because once the service closes they won’t be able to access it.  

Airtel Cloud storage was launched about 7 years ago in October 2016. It offers 2GB of free cloud storage to back up audio, video, photos, documents, contacts, call history and more for free. The data of Airtel Cloud is stored among 10 large and 120 edge data centers located within India. 

When a customer asked Airtel about this, the customer service replied, “Please be informed cloud service has been discontinued. We’ll inform you once any new update comes along via relevant media.”

Airtel Cloud has no significance considering that Google, Microsoft, Dropbox, and other companies already offer cloud storage facilities with more free storage and better features like real-time synchronization, compatibility across multiple devices, OS, and more.
