No TouchWiz Music and Video Player for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.


The Korean smartphone makers Samsung has recently released the future flagship device the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in an event in WMC last night. Soon after the event the participants were invited to have a look at the latest devices. Some of the reporters from the event have confirmed that there is no official TouchWiz Music Player and Video Player in both Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

Both these stock apps have been placed with the Google Play Music and Google Play Movies apps. So if you run any audio file in your future Galaxy S7 device. It will automatically opens in the Google Play Music app or the one you selected as the third party music player. But there will be no TouchWiz official Music Player which we used to open since the start of the Samsung Galaxy S series.

Beside this the developers at Samsung seemed to be more interested in adding the Microsoft Office apps likes of ( Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive and Skype) as the official pre-loaded apps for both devices.


It’s unclear why Samsung has made this switch, but we presume it has something to do with the amount of content available through the Google Play Store. I, myself, am a subscriber of Play Music All Access and use it religiously on my Galaxy S6 edge+ — so it’s pretty safe to say that I’m happy with the company’s decision to axe its default services. After all, I can’t even remember the last time I opened Music Player.
