Just got the UI5 update for my s21 ultra. After restarting I get a message that says "Smart things keeps crashing" it then gives me the option to:
1.close the app
2. Send feedback

I tried sending feedback, but Samsung wants permission to access my ALL of my photos, videos, music, audio files for up to one year. I see no reason for Samsung to have access to all of these things. So here I am in the community forums.

I tried starting the app and it won't even open. Was this app disabled/ discontinued with the new UI5? I'm pretty sure the app was used for recognizing and and phone calls while Bluetooth connections were running. At least that's what I recall seeing.

If it's no longer needed, I can either disable or uninstall (I think), I haven't tried yet, but would like to know if it's a bug or intentional first...

I received an update a week or two after the 13 update that was around 810MB. My phone has been fine. I'd imagine every lineup is going to receive a form of this additional update in the days/ weeks to come.
