Samsung has finally determined that the fairly obnoxious advertisements that appear in its own apps are no longer necessary.
Samsung is the undisputed ruler and supreme authority in the world of Android devices. Despite this, the South Koreans felt it necessary to saturate their own apps with superfluous adverts in order to get them to run through the OneUI shell. Because of technological advancements, the somewhat unsavoury method of advertising is no longer in use.
Samsung has decided to delete advertisements.
According to 9to5Google, the internet giant has finally determined that it makes no sense to advertise itself (and others) in applications that are associated with the brand itself. Ads are no longer displayed in standard Samsung applications such as the Weather app, Samsung Pay, and Samsung Health. Previously, banner advertisements were used to promote the company’s services and products, as well as its own.
However, for the person who advertised Samsung, it is clearly bizarre that consumers must “purchase” free services from the manufacturer by watching advertisements. Because, after all, the income model of Samsung Health does not rely on advertising revenue.
The amount of money that can be made from such an app is questionable. On the one hand, Samsung might be able to do something useful with the information gathered by such apps. On the other side, it’s possible that the corporation uses such free services to entice users to the platform. Whatever the reason, it was a little disagreeable that the apps in issue had been providing space for advertisements from the beginning.
