Suddenly one day I was unable to find Samsung Free app. (When swipe right on home screen).

Unable to when searched in phone apps. I went to galaxy store app, and Free App is showing grayed out to even install. (See screenshot)

Is it discontinued for specific models of Galaxy phone? Or discontinued for all?

Try searching for Samsung TV Plus and you should be able to get the TV part of the old app or Samsung News for the news part

From the notice at 3 vertical dots top right corner of Samsung news they explain that for the old watch tab go to Samsung TV Plus and for the old Play tab you go to Game Launcher

It's not a "problem".

Samsung Free was simply replaced by Samsung News. That was the original question.
