Microsoft Photosynth service is no longer available

Back in 2015, Microsoft halted the support and development of some of its photo apps, including Lumia photo apps and mobile clients for the Photosynth service, allowing users to create interactive panoramas and upload them to the web. By the time of that announcement, the service itself was still accessible via a web interface, but in late 2016 Microsoft decided to shut it down too. And as of February 7, 2017, Microsoft Photosynth is no longer available.

Microsoft to shut down PhotoSynth service on February 6, 2017, download your creations now

Some time ago, Microsoft announced that its service for creating 360° panoramas, called Photosynth will shut down in 2017. Keeping this in mind, if you have used this service or any of its apps to create something, you probably want to download your synths to keep them after the service is gone. Microsoft has published instructions to do so about a month ago, but now the company has released a separate app to view them offline.
