Samsung will soon stop supporting one of its apps. Here you can read what users should know about it.
Bad news for users of the Video Library app: As can be read on the Samsung forum, the Galaxy device manufacturer is currently informing that the app will be discontinued on January 1, 2024. Due to the no longer rolling out of updates, it is no longer possible to use the app under Android 14 / One UI 6.
After the deadline, the video library can only be used with smartphones that meet the following criteria:
- Android operating system 6 to 13
- Samsung Galaxy S5 to S23
- Galaxy Note 4 to Note 20
- All Galaxy Z, A and M models
Other apps serve the same purpose: Samsung stops supporting video library
Samsung primarily cites the reason for the downtime as the app is rarely used anymore. The video library barely distinguishes itself from the gallery and video player apps on Galaxy smartphones. So there is hardly any reason to use the alternative.
As the name suggests, video library is a type of gallery app specifically designed for videos. Samsung continues its strategy of removing unnecessary or rarely used apps from its lineup with One UI updates, which of course also affects the storage space required on the smartphone.
