Milk-Music-SamsungAs announced back in August, it looks like the time for Samsung Milk Music to move onto greener pastures has come as the service has officially shut down in the US. In a post on its official website, it reads, “Thank you for using Samsung Milk Music. As of September 22, 2016 support for the Samsung Milk Music service is no longer available. If you would like to continue your music experience, you can sign up for a free account with Slacker Radio, the service that powered Samsung Milk Music.”

In case you did not know, Milk Music was kind of Samsung’s answer to music streaming, although in reality it was more similar to other streaming services such as Pandora, versus on-demand services like Spotify, Tidal, or Apple Music. As it stands, Samsung is referring existing users to Slacker Radio where they can get a free 14-day trial to Slacker Plus, after which it will be priced at $3.99 a month.

It should be noted that Milk Music continues to operate in the likes of China and Korea, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the service were to eventually shutter in those markets as well. It is unclear as to what Samsung has planned next, such as will they be launching an on-demand service to compete with Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music, but we suppose that remains to be seen. In the meantime will any of you guys miss the Milk Music streaming service?
