I hope this doesn't affect Samsung apps.

Hopefully not, somewhat disappointing none the less.   According to "The Verge"  with the focus on AI Android Apps may not be worth the resources. Another possibility  is that people searching  for Android apps on Windows expected the full  Google Play  Store experienc and not Amazon’s variant, which has an inferior overall selection.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Yeah hoping I don't loose all my Samsung apps, but they do come from a separate Samsung Driver, Apps application, but just assumed that is a similar scenario to Amazon.

Problem with partnership's here one day, gone the next.

That's a big disappointment, after they made Microsoft users pay for Microsoft services for years, now they are withdrawing support. Not fair play.

One Drive belongs to Microsoft isn't it? I hope we can keep it. It's my favourite cloud app.

Thank you for confirming.

They say in the article not enough people use Microsoft but some use it to write documents, and the Microsoft Ecosystem is very nice and accessible and I am paying for it. Some users are well used to it, and I don't know another app that you can use same like Microsoft to use for your files.

If they get rid of onedrive support, ill be switching to google and hope that they integrate google photos backup into gallery. I pay £2 a month for 100gb of storage and i dont regret it, although i will regret it if they decide to mess it up.
