The Samsung Milk Music is an App where you can choose and enjoy your favorite music anytime, anywhere and with anyone. Samsung Milk Music, powered by slacker, is a free streaming radio service that is right for you. You have the Power to personalize your own music station to your liking or tune in to radio stations based on your personal taste and mood.
Samsung Users are going to have to find a new way to listen to music. The company announced that it would be shuttering its Streaming radio service Samsung Milk Music.
While Samsung Milk Music is a good service and even made it to our list of top free music apps, it seems the Samsung-exclusive service was not enough to get a strong user base. Or at least that is part of the reason why the service is going down.
According to Variety, Samsung will be shutting down Samsung Milk Music on September 22nd, urging its Samsung Galaxy and Note Smartphone users to switch over to Slacker Radio, which powered the system. The elimination of the service has been rumored for several months, with reports that the company was going to shutter the service because it had failed to gain traction with users.
Samsung said in a statement that Samsung Milk Music is being closed down to “invest in a partner model focused on seamlessly integrating the best Samsung Milk Music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices”.
Samsung launched the music streaming service to much fanfare in 2014 as an alternative to ad-supported services such as Spotify and Pandora. Later that year, it launched a video service called Samsung Milk Music Video. That system lasted only a year before it was closed. It’s not clear what Samsung’s plans are to replace the service, other than to direct users to Slacker, an ad-supported music streaming service.
