8.10.2021 | Samsung removed ads in their default apps
Samsung has confirmed that it will stop showing ads in default apps including Samsung Weather, Samsung Pay and Samsung Theme.
Its mobile chief TM Roh also made a comment about this in an internal town hall meeting - “Samsung has made a decision to cease the advertisement on proprietary apps including Samsung Weather, Samsung Pay and Samsung Theme,” and confirmed to The Verge that “The update will be ready by later this year.”
“Our priority is to deliver innovative mobile experiences for our consumers based on their needs and wants,” the company said. “We value feedback from our users and continue our commitment to provide them with the best possible experience from our Galaxy products and services.” Samsung did not share a specific date for when the ads would be removed from its software, but Yonhap previously reported that the change will be made via a forthcoming One UI software update.
