Samsung to Pull the Plug Off Milk Video Services this November

October 5, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s going to be November Blackout for all Milk fans out there. Samsung has decided to pull the wires off its Galaxy-exclusive video streaming app from November.

The manufacturer has now announced that Milk, an app that was designed for Galaxy users to have video streams, is now set to meet its doomsday on November 20, coining with its first anniversary.

The app, which was touted as the ‘Next Big Thing in Video’, was launched on November 19, 2014, with an aim to take on other similar services like YouTube and Vimeo.


Although with the support for curated feeds with video searches and sharing features, the app failed to instigate an interest among the smartphone community, with the predominant factor being that it was made available only for Galaxy users. Also, the services were restricted to users within the US.

Samsung hasn’t cited any reason for the sudden and quick pull-out of the Milk app. But the apparent lack of popularity can be believed as the sole reason that’s forcing them to take down the app on just completing its first anniversary.

All kinds of support will be pulled, which means that the app will no longer pop-up on the app store, and neither will it continue to offer video services for the existing users.

Users can still continue using the more popular Milk Music app, the one dedicated for music stream.

Although being a Galaxy-exclusive app, the latter can still be opened via browsers, which along with its ease of convenience made it more popular than its video counterpart.
