According to Variety, Samsung will be shutting down Milk Music on September 22 and urging its Galaxy Note smartphone users to switch to Slacker Radio, which powered the system.
Samsung said in a statement that Milk Music is close down to “invest in the partner model focused on the seamless integration of the best music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices.”
Samsung launches streaming music service to great fanfare in 2014 as an alternative to supporting advertising services, such as Spotify and Pandora. Later that same year, it launched a video service called Milk Video. This system lasted only one year before the closure. It is not clear what Samsung plans to replace the service, but to send users to Slacker which is an ad supported streaming music service.
