This feature isn't available for the watch 4 and 5 but why? It's a great feature. Please add it to a future update

@liquid_ghost Not sure this does exactly what you are looking for but you can uninstall apps from the GW 5 itself.

  1. On the watch swipe up to see the app screen. 
  2. Click on the Play store icon.
  3. Scroll down until you find Manage apps and click on it. 
  4. Long press on the icon that you want to uninstall. And release. 
  5. On the screen that opens, scroll below the Open button and you will see the Uninstall button.

Thank you. That is true, but the app I am trying to hide coincides with another app I am using.

+1 I want to be able to hide also system apps that are not listed in play store.

I don't understand why the developers decided to take the ability to hide system apps away. It's annoying. I want to keep my Apps tile nice and clean.

Another post to request that we be able to UNINSTALL and/or HIDE apps. The apps screen can feel entirely cluttered with apps I do not use (either brand or function). I would LOVE it if I didn't feel absolutely forced into yet another ecosystem. Any update on a time when users can go back to personalizing their watches that fit their needs and not Samsung's?

I'm going INSANE! How do I hide (Samsung) apps on my Galaxy Watch 6 Classic? Samsung's help page is outdated...or just wrong ☹️

You can't hide apps on your watch. I put all of the Samsung apps into a folder
