Samsung has made an announcement that it has made decision to cease the advertisement on proprietary apps like Samsung Weather, Samsung Pay, and Samsung Theme. This revelation was made by Samsung’s mobile chief TM Roh in a town hall meeting. Roh said that the company in response to customer’s demand has made a decision to cease the advertisement on proprietary apps including Samsung Weather, Samsung Pay, and Samsung Theme and the update will be ready by later this year.
He added that the purpose of the new decision is to improve user experience on Samsung Galaxy phones, especially. Recall that, sometimes last year, some Samsung users complained on social media about the unwanted ads appearing on their phones.
Some screenshots were shared by the users to emphasise that the company showed ads of various sizes and not just merely text-based ads but also the ones with images and even covering nearly a third of the screen.
Though the town hall meeting suggested that there is ongoing work in stopping the ads, however, it is currently unclear whether the change will come into place for all users — including the ones who have affordable Galaxy phones.
The company has also not confirmed whether the update will be available to consumers.
