Samsung introduced its very own music service back in March 2014 and called it Milk Music. The app was initially exclusive to the company’s Galaxy devices before it was made available to more Samsung devices. The company even created a desktop web app for Milk Music in March last year but those moves don’t appear to have paid off. Samsung has announced that it’s going to shut down Milk Music for good on September 22nd.
Samsung posted a brief statement on its website confirming that Milk Music is going to be shut down on September 22nd and that it’s going to focus more on “seamlessly integrating the best music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices.”.
When Samsung shut down Milk Video in November last year, it felt like it was only a matter of time before Milk Music got similar treatment. Samsung kept it around for several months after that but it appears that the service just hasn’t done well with users which is why it makes no sense for the company to keep it around.
If you open up the app’s page on Google Play Store it will reiterate that the service is shutting down on September 22nd and redirect you to Slack Radio which as it turns out was powering Milk Music. Slacker Radio offers Pro and Premium subscriptions for $3.99 and $9.99 per month respectively.
