Verizon replaced the PIX/FLIX message system and storage because it upgraded to the Verizon Cloud, as noted by Verizon Wireless. The Multimedia Messaging/PIX Place Online Album was officially discontinued on October 1, 2014, and all subscriber accounts to it were canceled.
PIX Place was an earlier version of cloud storage made available by Verizon. Customers could upload and store pictures and videos to PIX Place and use the Multimedia Messaging System to share content with other Verizon users. Since its discontinuation, all personal videos, images and files in the system became no longer available to view or download. Customers who did not make backup copies of their files were not able to access PIX Place to get them as of October 2014.
Verizon felt at the time that its cloud storage offerings were limited and developed the Verizon Cloud, noted Tech Republic. The Verizon Cloud offers users the ability to upload and store a wider range of content, including videos, pictures, music and contact information. Users can also synchronize all of their devices with the Verizon Cloud, so they can access their content from any of their devices at any time. Verizon also backs up all of the files on the Verizon Cloud, so users can download backup copies of their content.
