Samsung’s Milk Music is making headlines this week, but not for positive reasons. The music service’s parent division, Media Solutions America, has laid off “dozens” of staff according to Variety, which suggests that as much as 15% of its headcount may have gone. This, shortly after Samsung’s VP of content and services Kevin Swint left the company.
Milk Music remains going alongside its Milk Video and Milk VR compatriots, with Samsung maintaining it is not planning to close them. “What we can tell you is that Samsung remains committed to delivering engaging, connected entertainment experiences through its Milk platform, and we continue to expand our library of music, video and virtual reality,” said a spokesperson. Milk Music is Samsung’s latest crack at digital music, following the flop of its Samsung Music Hub.
