Strava decided to no longer work with us and shut down our access to your activities. This means you can no longer create Relive videos based on your Strava activities.
We then tried to call, email, and talk this out with Strava. No response, except for new ultimatums and threats about our existing features they’ve applauded for years.
Nothing has changed about how Relive uses and protects your data or how we use their API.
This is a very different sounding memo than the email Strava sent last night:
Many of us at Strava have enjoyed using Relive over the last few years, but because of Relive’s recent updates, unfortunately, we have decided to end this integration. The current version of Relive violates several of the terms that we ask of API partners. These terms are in place to safeguard your personal information, to ensure a level playing field for all our partners, and to protect what makes Strava unique. We’ve worked hard with Relive to try to fix this, but they have ultimately chosen not to make the changes needed to honor their agreement. So as of today, Strava will no longer send your activities to Relive for playback.
Does the “current version of Relive violate” terms, or has “nothing changed about how Relive uses” Strava’s API? Has Strava “worked hard with Relive to try to fix this” or has Strava given “no response” to Relive’s calls and emails? It’s hard for me to understand how both of these sides of the story can both be fully factual.
