Retirement notice: Azure Media Services is being retired on 30 June 2024

Published date: July 14, 2023

Azure Media Services will be retired on 30 June 2024. This is a result of Microsoft focusing on strategic areas of secular growth and long-term competitiveness for the company. We're also accelerating media services solutions from the Microsoft partner ecosystem across integrated solution vendors and system integrators.

From now through 30 June 2024, you can continue to use Azure Media Services without any disruptions. After 30 June 2024, Azure Media Services won’t be supported, and customers won’t have access to their Azure Media Services accounts.

Required action

To avoid any service disruptions, you’ll need to transition to Azure Video Indexer for on-demand video and audio analysis workflows or to a Microsoft partner solution for all other media services workflows before 30 June 2024. To learn about Microsoft partner solutions and migration to Azure Video Indexer, follow this documentation.
