DeveloperSamsung Electronics
Initial release2013|05|29

Samsung Link was an application for mobile devices that connected all devices and storage services in one place for integrated search and playback. According to a public release by Samsung:
Samsung Link will no longer be available as of [08:00 a.m., November 1, 2016, GMT+9] according to internal policy (“Effective Date”): Although the Samsung Link service will no longer be supported, all files stored on registered devices and cloud services will not be deleted. You can access those remaining files from each device’s and cloud storage’s website/application.
Before Samsung terminated this service, users could register their device, such as a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet to the same account, and listen to music, share photos or documents, and watch videos on their device remotely. Content on storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or SugarSync could be also downloaded or streamed, although some SugarSync accounts discontinued on The application replaced AllShare, which did not require an Internet connection to be able to pair devices. It is not clear why Samsung took a unilateral decision to terminate the Samsung Link service, and users are assuming that it was a cost-saving measure in the aftermath of Samsung's losses from the Galaxy Note 7 recall. Anecdotal evidence suggests that customers who say they bought their devices specifically for the Samsung Link functionality are unhappy with this decision, but are waiting to see whether Samsung re-instates the AllShare functionality which does not require Samsung to provide an ongoing internet-based service.
