I recently recieved the update to Samsung Music. The ad at the top of the tracks list is really annoying and is unaccepatble for my flagship phone. I don't want to use a music app with and ad. Is there any way to dissable these ads?

These ads cannot be disabled, however,  you can turn off interest-based ads by going to settings > google settings > ads > click on opt-out.  We appreciate your feedback and will tag it on the forum so that it will appear with other feedback, ideas, and requests. This will allow your post to be more easily found in the event that Samsung product groups are seeking outside feedback/requests/ideas regarding our products.

I have an S10 and just got that update. It's really annoying. I used to love Samsung Music and still use it to listen to all of my music, but I'll probably switch to something else if I can't get rid of the ads. It's a nice app that I've never had any issues with, but the ads are, like you said, completely unacceptable and I highly doubt there's any way to remove them short of rooting your phone, which you shouldn't have to do...

Update: switched to musicolet. It's not as nice as Samsung Music was but it's a really light app.

I cannot stand anymore of these ads popping up constantly. Please tell me what to do about them. I block each one but they keep coming.

Fr! Been a Samasung Music user since S7. Lightweight, easy to navigate but these ads just ruined it

I will no longer support Samsung if they keep up with this intrusive behavior by putting ads in their own apps(especiallythe apps I use most), I'll be taking my business elsewhere in the future other than Samsung because of this. :(

I'll stop using it too, why have ads to make more money while  simultaneously creating a less attractive and poorer user experience. I hope you guys change this

i had the same issue. I was able to remove it by going into the settings. 

 

Go to settings-go to google settings-go to ads-click on opt out for ads and is done.
