    Looks like Samsung is ready to bow out of the music streaming war ending their Samsung Milk services on November 20th of this year. With all the services out there and Apple being available on the Play Store, Samsung hasn't done enough to set themselves apart from the competition. Quite frankly Milk never lived up to the hype and soured.

    Hopefully they'll remove it from my phone too so I don't have to disable it.
    Its powered by Slacker Radio if I'm not mistaken.

    lol

    edit: wow... there was much more here no idea what happened to it.

    what I was going to say was, I've never heard of this... there's too damn many streaming services already. these companies need to stop trying to be EVERYTHING to EVERYONE and focus on what they do right.

    I have heard of it, but never even thought about checking it out. Not sorry to see it go. I'm pretty set in my current ways for streaming.

    I've been using it since launch. It's a really decent music service. I flip flop between this and Google Play Music all the time.

    Sorry for your loss. Sounds like you might wanna switch to Slacker Radio.

    I've been using Google Play Music since it was first available to me. It serves my needs well.

    I get the same functionality out of Play Music, but it is easier to switch music with Milk.

    Samsung is slowly reverting back to being a Google Services OEM. I'm willing to bet that they kill their app store next.

    I doubt that, unless they through themselves even more into Tizen. They're not done trying to squeeze every drop that they can. I'm guessing this is just a case of poor adoption rates.
