Default Another Missing Feature - Samsung Link?

I have also come to notice that (at least) our AT&T Galaxy S5's are missing another app. It's called Samsung Link, and is one of my favorite "bloatware" apps. I called Samsung Tech Support and they blamed ATT, so I'm not even going to try and pursue it further. Does anyone see this app on their phone? I haven't had the chance to check if the other carriers have this app installed or not, but if anyone knows that would be awesome.

Thanks.

So you don't have it either?

If the other carriers have it I'm seriously gonna call AT&T and ragemode on them. That's just ridiculous. It's on EVERY OTHER galaxy device made after the S2...

Really? I have tried to find out how to access this app and I've checked everywhere. No dice. And yes I did see the samsung link platform under app manager.

This is really lame. Samsung blamed ATT, and they didn't even put it on the international version...

Called Samsung back and they said that it isn't preinstalled anymore but should be downloadable from the Play Store within a few days.

"It is a known issue and we are working on it."

I was talking about this. The toggles above brightness.
