Last year Samsung; It started showing ads in some stock apps, such as Samsung Music, Samsung Stock, Samsung Themes, and Samsung Weather. The ad displays in these applications, which are offered to Galaxy smartphone and tablet users as installed on the devices, made the device owners quite angry, and this anger even caused them to question whether they should buy Samsung products in the coming periods. Samsung seems to have listened to this issue.
Samsung Electronics and Portable Connectivity Leader TM Roh announced during a meeting of the company that the aforementioned ads will be removed from Samsung’s stock apps. Stating that they always listen to the concerns of consumers, TM Roh said, “We are looking for new growth opportunities in the fields of content and advertising services, such as games and media, to strengthen the integrated Galaxy ecosystem experience. Renewing the consumer experience based on this is our most valuable mission.”
South Korean company OneUI said it would start removing ads with software updates, but did not specify which update exactly. In other words, consumers may have to wait a little longer for the ads to completely disappear.
