Samsung's partnership with Microsoft seems to be getting stronger with every year that passes, with the two companies finding new ways to integrate their services and products with each other.

In one of the most recent moves, it was reported that Samsung Cloud is in the process of being shut down and will be replaced by Microsoft OneDrive as the go-to cloud storage solution for Samsung devices.

This has gotten quite a few of our forum members talking, with some of them sharing the following thoughts:

I hope they don't personally.

Leave the those things to Microsoft/Google who are way better at it. Yeah I know unpopular opinion here in the Samsung forum but nevertheless my opinion. But even though personally wouldn't use Samsung cloud doesn't hurt people having choices. Probably financially makes sense for Samsung not to concentrate/invest in this area and instead partner with Microsoft.

This will be bad news if they do that

As a Verizon customer I can't use Samsung cloud. Lol Carriers blocking it might be a part of the reason they're getting rid of it. Besides why use OneDrive when Google provides 15Gb?

  • Does having a Samsung give you more than the default 5GB on Onedrive?
  • I've been a Microsoft OneDrive user since my days as a Windows Phone user. So this is no big deal to me since I'm already an avid Windows user.
  • That's good news to me. With an Office 365 subscription; and already making serious use of OneDrive, this will simplify things.
  • I never even knew it existed.
  • It's the primary cloud storage for everything Microsoft. Been around for ages. Hard to believe no one has ever heard of it with so many article on here written about it already.
  • I use both right now but primarily I go to Microsoft. If they can properly integrate so I can still use samsung pass I'll be okay with it because Microsoft's cloud storage is really secure.
  • Most definitely! Had to go to Walmart when I read about it and buy a couple boxes of Kleenex!
  • I had been a Samsung user for half a year before I even discovered what Samsung services there were. After having used Samsung for a year now, I still have no idea what I had been missing out on.
  • I've only got one Samsung tablet but I've been using Onedrive for years. 1TB of storage with Office 365 comes in handy.
  • Not sad by any means. Have had link to OneDrive in Gallery activated since the feature was released. Already have an office 365 account so it makes it easy.
  • I bet they will boost the free storage amount if you use the gallery link service, like they did for windows phone. So I wouldn't worry to much about the free storage amount quite yet.
