Samsung’s One UI is the best custom user interface based on android. But just like Chinese OEMs, Samsung started showing ads in some of its default apps in One UI.
Now, the company has decided to remove all the apps from its default apps to make the user experience more pleasant. Some of the default apps that show ads are the weather app, themes, and Samsung pay apps. These apps will no longer show ads by the end of the year.
The announcement was made by the company’s mobile chief TM ROH in an internal town hall meeting as conveyed by the Korean publication Yonhap.
According to The Verge the company said:
“Samsung has made a decision to cease the advertisement on proprietary apps including Samsung Weather, Samsung Pay, and Samsung Theme. The update will be ready later this year. Our priority is to deliver innovative mobile experiences for our consumers based on their needs and wants. We value feedback from our users and continue our commitment to provide them with the best possible experience from our Galaxy products and services.”
If you use a Samsung Galaxy smartphone then this will be great news for you as you will no longer see those unwanted ads. But you have to wait a bit as this decision will be implemented by the end of this year.
Ads seem pretty annoying, especially in the stock or default apps. Many Samsung users kept on seeing those promotions and ads on the lock screen and default apps like the weather app. This update will be great news for South Korean users especially for those who are spending as much as $1,199 on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
The company didn’t mention any timeframe of when this update will roll out. We are hoping that it will roll out to all versions of One UI and not a specific version and it will roll out to global users.
The trend of pushing ads to the stock or default apps was started by the Chinese OEMs especially Xiaomi. We hope that following the footsteps of Samsung many Chinese phone makers will also stop publishing ads on their default apps especially on their flagship devices.
