It looks like Samsung has been trying a lot of areas lately, and its latest app is called Milk Video, a new social video app that was launched today.
Samsung Milk Video app can be used on Galaxy devices and it comes as a follow-up to the latest Internet radio service launched by Samsung called Milk Music. Samsung said that with the Milk Video app, the company wants its users to discover the latest and the coolest videos on the internet, while using the Samsung devices like the Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
Samsung vice president in charge of content and services, Kevin Swint said of the new Milk Video service that:
“Discovery happens in very haphazard and random way. This experience leaves a lot of people feeling like they’re always the last one to see the video that everybody is talking about. We thought we could solve that.”
The videos you can find on the Milk Video app are curated by people from Samsung whose job is to find viral videos from all categories, including entertainment and sport, and show them to the Samsung user. The videos are selected from various popular sources like YouTube, and Samsung said that they have partnered with other video sources like Buzfeed, Vice, Funny or Die and College Humor, to provide content for the Milk Video app.
Samsung said that some of the video sources like Red Bull Studios and Funny or Die will also make special videos exclusively for the new Samsung video app.
Through these partnerships and exclusive videos, Samsung hopes that the new Milk Video app will be different than other available video streaming apps. Samsung also said that Milk Video will have no ads.
The Milk Video app allows users to share the videos and user can follow each other in order to see the most popular videos trending among their friends.
For now, the Milk Video app only supports a Facbook login, but Samsung said that the users will be able to log in with a Samsung account in the near future.
Milk Video is a free app, just like Milk Music, but it’s only available for users of Samsung Galxy smarpthones.
