Samsung will shut down Milk Music in the US on September 22

Following its closure in Australia, Samsung has today announced that it will shut down its Milk Music streaming service in the United States on Thursday, September 22. Unfortunately, the South Korean company failed to provide an explanation for its decision to axe the platform in the region. It did reveal, however, that it’s working on a new project that’s focused on “seamlessly integrating the best music services available today into [its] family of Galaxy devices.”

We have made the strategic decision to invest in a partner model focused on seamlessly integrating the best music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices. We believe that working with partners will accelerate innovation, enhance device sales and provide amazing new experiences for our customers — Samsung.

Much to our disappointment, Samsung failed to provide any specific details for its upcoming service. Although, it’s possible that the firm is keeping the upcoming platform under strict lock and key as it’s planning to take the wraps off it at IFA next month. As always, be sure to keep your browser pointed to SamMobile, and follow us over on Facebook and Twitter, as we’ll let you know the latest information on the matter as soon as we have it.

I believe the only option for Samsung is to create a Tidal competitor as that´s the only streaming service that will fully use the potential of Samsung´s top notch headphones. Or give Samsung users a special deal to use Tidal premium for a margin of the price. I don´t want a dozen games with wannabe free features, I want something useful when I buy a 1000 USD+ device.

Milk Music is Slacker Radio. You can use Slacker Radio now if you liked Milk Music

I really agree with VBX.. big time. I’ll miss the app then. It was so much better than Pandora. Great looking interface, too. Sometimes, change for the sake of change is a bad move. Time will tell I guess. :(((

I agree. Naming is huge. I will miss it too, even though I use several paid apps such as Google Play Musicfamily plan and Spotify family. I really hope that Samsung teams up with Google Play Music and offers a discount for Samsung users.
