Samsung to cap off Milk Music on September 22
Milk Video wasn’t a winning fighter in serving up interesting, curated, well-produced video. Just because Samsung’s the top mobile device producer in the world doesn’t mean it can lay down its own multimedia platform down. That’s especially when its customers consider everyone else just plain better.
The same may go for streaming music as Samsung has announced that its Milk Music service will be sunset on September 22. The company’s suggested fall back option? Slacker, the service Milk was based on.
“We believe that working with partners will accelerate innovation, enhance device sales and provide amazing new experiences for our customers,” the company stated.
Executives have been leaving the Milk unit for months now, so it would seem that the pour would be stopping down the line. Plus, if your trademark over “Milk” is getting rattled over, there probably might be some signals you’re not paying attention to.
By its end, Milk Music would have lasted for two years and five months, more than twice as long as Milk Video.
