Samsung Mall to be discontinued at the end of June
Released in January 2017, Samsung India's Mall app has been installed more than 10,000,000 times since then. According to its Google Play Store page, this app has received its last — and final, apparently — update on February 11, 2019. After over 27,000 user reviews, its rating stands at 4.4 out of 5, but none of these seems to be enough for Samsung to keep it around.
Those who are using the Samsung Mall app have recently received the "Thank you for your support. Samsung Mall will be discontinued and the service will not be available after 30/06/2019" message as a notification on their phones, so it seems like the date for the app's dismissal has been set and there's no "if" or "maybe" involved. However, the official Samsung Mall website still has no statement regarding this upcoming move.
Samsung Mall is not a solitary effort, since Samsung teamed up with a few solid shopping partners, including Amazon, TATA CliQ, ShopClues, and Jabong. However, most local retailers — such as Flipkart — have their own shopping apps and provide big discounts to their users.
