For a long time, Samsung had Bixby on its home screen, to the left of your main home screen. While Google used its own Google Discover there. In recent times, Samsung has removed Bixby in favor of Samsung Free. Which is their new content aggregator. It brings you news articles, podcasts, videos, games and much more. Of course, for free. Similar to what Google Discover does, but potentially a bit better.
Samsung added Google Discover starting last year with the Galaxy S21 series, touting a closer relationship with Google. And actually, Google Discover is the default option on the Galaxy S22 now, and not Samsung Free. But some people may want to switch to Samsung Free, or just remove it entirely. Fortunately, Samsung does allow you to do just that.
Today, we’re going to show you how you can remove Samsung Free from your Galaxy S22 smartphone.
