Samsung Cloud Service Samsung Cloud will cease operations in June next year
As the world’s top IT giant, Samsung’s cloud services for consumers have always been a place where they have been quite complained. Some time ago, Samsung has started to shut down their consumer cloud service Samsung Cloud, but they have only recently officially announced this plan.
According to foreign media reports, Samsung will officially stop operating Samsung Cloud services on June 21, 2021 . Moreover, the option to sync pictures and videos from the Samsung Album App to Sansung Cloud will be gradually closed in the near future. As an example, the Netherlands will officially close the photo album app synchronization function on October 5th, local time, and other markets will be closed this fall.
Samsung allows Samsung Cloud users to migrate data to Microsoft’s cloud service OneDrive cloud disk before April 1 of next year. During the 10-week period from April 1 to June 21, Samsung only allows users to manually download data from Samsung Cloud. . After June 21st, Samsung Cloud servers will be permanently shut down.
Users with Samsung devices should know that Samsung Cloud did not allow users to purchase capacity packages two years ago. Only the standard 15GB is available for use, and then it has been reduced to 5GB. Currently on Samsung phones, Samsung Cloud has been replaced by Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive. Album synchronization only supports OneDrive cloud disks.
The end of Samsung Cloud means that Samsung has formally reached a cooperation with Microsoft and switched to using OneDrive cloud disk synchronization on the device. However, in the “My Files” App, Google Drive synchronization is still an option. It is reported that this is part of Samsung’s huge strategic transformation, and it will be more cost-effective to establish an important partnership with Microsoft’s OneDrive team. Samsung’s software reduction has been quite large, but this will have a certain impact on their product ecology.
