Re: Ads in Samsung Music

I've had Samsung's since the S3. I have the S20 now and honestly I'm just tired of them. The ads are disgusting and an insult really. I literally just ordered a Pixel 4a because I'm kind of hating my S20 anymore. I don't even like the camera on this phone. It's kind of garbage when it comes to motion blur.  Really bad processing compared to other phones. I may end up getting a Pixel 5 actually if it isn't oversized...I heard it may be 6.7 inches and I'm kind of tired of huge phones anymore. I think 5.5-5.8 is good. Samsung needs to get their act together. Even the Note 20 announced today is way overpriced for what it is. Samsung needs to switch gears and focus on making more affordable flagships and knock it off with ads. Nobody needs ads in native apps. So gross.

@userbVgG9dr6MV I personally use https://adguard.com/en/welcome.html at the premium level to cut out ads. You can often find it on sale and it's absolutely one of my best purchases.

Re: Ads in Samsung Music

This is working for me so far. 😁Open music, menu (3 dots), go to settings, go to about Samsung music, go to info button in the top right corner, and go to notifications, block notifications.

Re: Ads in Samsung Music

Samsung need to ditch the ads. Unfortunately they probably will never connect the dots between this kind of activity and reduced sales.

Re: Ads in Samsung Music

I am using Samsung Music version 6.2.21.6 (on Galaxy S20+) without ads for a while. It is one version older than the most current version which is 16.2.22.20.

 

Ads on Weather App arrived recently, so irritating! I am starting to look into options. OnePlus has trade-in options for purchasing their phone. They accept multiple Samsung phones, but Galaxy S20 is not one of them currently.

remove all ads in system apps

Imagine if iPhones gave ads in their system app. The only ads iPhones have are subscription for their own in-house services, which makes sense. However on apps like weather, I constantly see ads for third-party nonsense news. In order for users who pay a premium for their smart phones, we expect an ad free experience for native, built-in apps for samsung devices! This includes other apps like samsung pay and samsung music, and others I may have missed! None of these apps are promoting Samsung Services either. What a broken ecosystem and false facade of a premium device!
