Without further notice Samsung announced it has decided to terminate the Link application effective November 1. This means that starting this month, Samsung Link app will no longer be available for download.
Samsung cites “internal policy” reasons for no longer supporting Link. However, the South Korean company confirmed that those who used the application can still access their files.
In fact, all files stored on registered devices and cloud service will remain accessible since they will not be deleted. Unfortunately, Samsung doesn't say for how long users will still be able to access these remaining files from each device's and cloud storage's application.
It's also worth noting that there are some devices from which Samsung Link
application can't be deleted. According to Samsung, those who can't deleted Link must update the application to the latest version.
As for those Smart TVs that come with Samsung Link pre-installed, the application can be easily removed by simply updated the TV software.
The Link is one of the oldest Android apps launched by Samsung. It made its debut as AllShare Play
on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it lived for more than 4 years. Farewell Samsung Link, it was fun while it lasted.
