“Cloudee has a very special place in our hearts, it’s a service we built for our families. It was the way we shared meaningful experiences and funny moments. Unfortunately, as the team has been working diligently on exciting new products within Samsung, we came to the decision that Cloudee will not have a place in the new organization and we will have to shut it down.”
The email goes on to say that users have until the end of the month to download any of their videos, after which everything is going to be deleted.
Cloudee, which launched in June of 2012, allowed users to upload videos from their iPhones and share them privately with their friends and contacts. The service was a bit of an odd duck for Boxee, which had been developing a platform for TV-connected devices. But Boxee used Cloudee in part to test cloud video storage. That knowledge was then used to launch Boxee’s Cloud DVR service, which also has shut down since the acquisition.
