Samsung will shut the doors on Samsung Music on July 1st

Samsung's attempt to compete with Google Play Music is finally coming to an end as the company has announced the closure date for Samsung Music (KRX:005930)

For months now, Samsung executives have warned that they fully intend to shut down the company's content hubs, and it looks like Samsung Music is going to be the first casualty in this disposal of antiquated apps. Today Samsung released a statement that quite firmly said that 1 July 2014 will be the final call for Samsung Music.

Samsung says that it encourages all Samsung Music / Music Hub users to "take the time to download all purchased content and use any remaining vouchers for Samsung Music before July 1, 2014 - after that date they will no longer be available." At the moment, it is still unclear as to if Samsung will be replacing Music hub with a new service, but with heavy hitters like Google Play Music, Spotify, and Amazon Music virtually sucking up customers left and right, there may not be room for a new Samsung-only music service.
