That is pretty sad. I guess we will have an app update in the future to remove it.

Too small to survive.
Establishing in this market means to earn money.,
otherwise there is no chance.

That’s sad news. I have a nice little playlist I listen to there.

I agree but I wonder if the pandemic helped keep them viable longer than they may have been able too since everybody was at home more. :thinking:

I was wondering about this choice of business model for a streaming service. Admirable, but not sustainable… seemed like easy(ish) for outflow of $$, but not so much for the platform to earn in order to facilitate payments.

Will be interesting to see how it evolves.

It surprised me.
I was waiting for the LUM application to be available in our area, and here is such an unexpected news.

Shame to see it go. I enjoyed the playlist in the app.

Will need to check on a few from the soundcore app and my have to check where to get them once the Lum goes down.

It was enjoyable but I liked the previous playlist better than the current one.

I never liked having my choice of a Soundcore product having forced upon my their choice of music streaming being promoted along with nagging me to listen to something. I like decoupling of all my choices.

Certainly in Europe the bundling concept caused a large fine in other sectors away from music. e.g. Microsoft bundling IE.

Fortunately Soundcore allowed me to disable all my unwanted options to get it back to what I wanted of an app to control my Soundcore product.

I just want to say that it’s no loss for me personally. I was never able to use that silly service in Canada. Wise choice by Anker.
