Samsung Link content sharing app get shuts down with no warning


Users of the Samsung Link content sharing app got some unexpected, and rather shocking, news this week. Samsung sent out messages to those users informing them the app has been shut down. In fact, Samsung Link was closed earlier this week, on November 1, with no prior warning.

SamMobile reported that the notifications were sent out to smartphone users this week, and the official Samsung Link website also has been replaced with a bare bones page revealing the close of the service. It explains that the shut down was “due to a change in internal operation policy.” That’s a very vague reason, but it’s likely to be the only one we will get.

Samsung Link actually began life as another app and service, AllShare Play, which launched in 2012. It allowed owners of Samsung’s Android phones to share content like videos and photos with laptops, tablets, and smart TVs via Wi-Fi or DLNA. In 2013, AllShare Play was replaced by Samsung Link. It brought a new user interface and some new features such as the ability to automatically save any photos taken with your smartphone on your home PC.
