1. Samsung removing ads from its apps:

Samsung will stop showing ads in pre-installed apps on its Galaxy smartphones. According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, the company has announced some of its apps such as Samsung Weather, Samsung Theme, and Samsung Pay would no longer show ads after an update.

T.M. Roh, Samsung’s mobile chief, announced that the company would remove ads from its native apps to improve user experience. The update will reach users later this year.

According to the reports, Samsung will make the update available through a new One UI update. However, there’s no confirmation if the change would be effective for all users, including the affordable Galaxy smartphones.


2. SmartThings Edge update:

Samsung has announced a new hub architecture, SmartThings Edge, for its smart home platform. According to Samsung, the update brings enhancements to speed, security, and reliability.

As part of SmartThings’ evolution to modernize and move away from the legacy Groovy platform, SmartThings developed a solution that would be able to deliver the developer experience to meet the current times. Developers are now able to code and build Device Drivers with Lua©, offering a more robust and simpler way for device manufacturers to integrate with the SmartThings platform.


This new platform architecture is an example of SmartThing’s commitment to investing in technologies that make it easier for our global developer network to build the next generation of smart home experiences that inspire meaningful moments.
