Samsung Permanently Closes Tizen App Store


Starting in early 2022, Samsung announced that the Tizen application store was no longer accessible to old or new users.

In June, Samsung has discontinued the service for new users to use the Tizen Store and download new apps or games.

So, the Tizen app store can only be accessed for old users and they can only get previously downloaded apps.

However, after December 31, 2021, Samsung has officially closed the Tizen app store permanently. Reported by us from GSM Arena, Tuesday (11/1/2022) for Samsung Z series smartphone users, Samsung asks to switch to other platforms such as Android or iOS.

It is known that the Samsung Z4 was the company's last smartphone to run on Tizen OS and was released back in 2017.

It seems that Samsung is discontinuing its Tizen project after this year's Galaxy Watch4 series runs on Wear OS which is the first collaboration with Google and all future Galaxy watches can also run on Wear OS.

As is known, Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch 4 series at the Galaxy Unpacked event along with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. This is the first smartwatch to use the new Wear OS operating system in collaboration with Samsung and Google.

Thanks to the collaboration of Samsung and Google, the Galaxy Watch 4 series can run Google applications more comfortably. For example Google Maps, where users can set and follow navigation directly from the watch and can directly display it on the phone screen.

The Galaxy Watch 4 series itself comes in two variants, namely the regular and classic variants with two size options. For the 46 mm Galaxy Watch 4 Classic variant, Samsung has also brought a variant that supports LTE so that it can be used without connecting to a cellphone.

In addition to the new operating system, this smartwatch also brings many improvements in health features such as body composition measurement, faster electrocardiogram (ECG), and snoring detection.
