That update will return most non-core feed management features, including email subscriptions. Unfortunately, those who use FeedBurner to manage email subscriptions are asked to download email subscribers from the Google FeedBurner team.
A few thoughts update:
- It will come with a paid and free version that will allow you to switch to any platform like WordPress and it will probably invite better service than any other.
- Many days this Google’s service has not updated their blogs and all the items compared to the likes of competitors.
- Apart from this the money from the service of a new platform can actually be a good thing.
- We know Feedburner FollowByEmail This item works pop up so many bloggers kick this. I think this service needs to be better.
- Limitation issues. Feedburner is free. Bloggers are usually used on email services and email marketing platforms from RSS. Newsletter services, on the other hand, are not popular. This time it’s a big reason why everyone will USE every other CMS platform on an equal footing.
So what is changing? – What will not change:
- Non-core feed management features

If you use these features they will change, nothing will change as per Google Notice.
