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?

That would lead to more problems. Samsung One UI and its app syncs everything to one place, Samsung Cloud. If I start using 3rd party apps, my data won't be in one place. You are basically saying, ignore the problem, and use 3rd party apps trusting them with my data. This is one of the main reason why I moved away from Google to Samsung phones, is to have all my data synced to one place instead of relying on 3rd party apps.

Yeah I have been with Samsung since the S3 and have always defended them.  This has been the final blow in pushing me to Apple.  I sold my S20 2 weeks ago and picked up an iPhone 11 instead.  Much happier.  I wasn't always an Apple fan but it really just works so much better and with the Apple watch...it's great.  Especially compared to the Galaxy watch running that awful Tizen software that isn't compatible with anything.  I feel like Samsung is going to need to change things immediately if they want to keep customers.  Prices will need to drop drastically as well.

Yes, thank you. it is horrible. I spent a lot of money on this phone, shouldn't have to be annoyed by ads.

Why does Samsung feel the need to advertise a paid service when I'm using Samsung music! Every 7 days I get a pop up for XM radio that is not free! I know how to go sign up for paid service! I don't need a add every 7 days reminding me!!

you can download an older version of the app or just use an alternative app. if you interested in these options and can't find the already made posts about this or need more help let me know.
and no idea why when we pay so much for these devices already they should be ad free.

I just recently got a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, this does not feel like a personal device, it feels like a device for advertisers to reach me. The amount of ads that I'm bombarded by is ridiculous. I know I can disable personalized ads, but can I disable all ads in the built in applications? I use a lot of Samsung products and the fact that all your applications want to sell me something is such a terrible user experience. I have to scroll past ads just to see the weather forecast for the day, I have to pass multiple ads in order to change my watch face through my phone.... There are ads everywhere in this phone...

 

This has to be one of the worst user experiences I've ever had with a Samsung phone. Samsung, please disable the ads, we pay out of the nose for some of these devices.
