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?

Can you provide a screenshot of your weather app doing this after turning off customization service. 

 

Any yes the small ads on music i dont see any way of removing those.

 

Update: so when i turn this off i dont see the ads on top of the weather app but there are two when i scroll to the bottom. We should be able to block all ads if we want.

Also just found that google has a similar service.

Go to settings>google>ads>opt out of ads personalization

Turn it on to opt out and reset your advertising ID

 

Hope this helps

Same here. Extremely annoying to purchase a flagship phone and have ADs on it. This will probably be my last Samsung device.

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.

i searched google play to find apps with no ads, i went through alot of apps and then tested each one and found 3 of each that i liked for different reasons. If you decide to use one of these options let me know what you picked and why. Hope this helps someone avoid these Samsung ads.
