Samsung has decided to shut down its SideSync app & the services from October 15. SideSync is a Samsung service that allows users to share their smartphone’s screen and data with pc or tablet. The app has 50+ millions of downloads in the Android Play Store. One of the reasons Samsung decided to disconnect the app because of its Samsung Flow app that replaces all the functions of SideSync. The Samsung Flow allows all the smartphone as well as Galaxy Watch users to connect with their other devices in a secure way. At this moment, Samsung has only 5+ millions of downloads in the Play Store but after the termination of SideSync, more users probably use it.
Last year, SideSync was removed from Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9+ devices to give room for Samsung Flow that later received screen sharing update. Now all the users are receiving notifications to inform them the app will officially no longer available to use from October 15th. Here is the official statement from the SideSync team to all the downloaded users.
Dear SideSync customers,
SideSync is no longer available as of [09:00 AM, 15, October 2019, GMT+9], according to a change in internal operation policy.
Though SideSync service is no longer running, you can continue to use the mirroring through Samsung Flow.
Thank you for using SideSync.
We will endeavor to continue providing you with high quality services.
It has mentioned that the users can use Samsung Flow after the shut down of the app. Recently, Samsung has disconnected its shopping app Samsung Mall in India and now the company has decided to shut its another app from the store. If you are the users using this app then you can switch to the Samsung Flow app to share your phone’s screen or data with your other devices.
