How to remove Google news on Samsung from the home screen


The Google news section, installed and activated by default on most mobile devices with Android, can be useful for some and annoying for others, potentially causing discomfort among users. While staying informed is beneficial, this function may appear accidentally when you are browsing the main screen of your device.

If you own a Samsung phone and are tired of Google Discover appearing when you swipe the home screen to the right, you can easily remove it without rooting your phone. Well, all Samsung phones have an option that allows you to deactivate this news in the blink of an eye.

Remove Google news on your Samsung mobile by following these steps

Before we show you the tutorial in question, it is important to note that once Google News is deactivated , Google Discover will no longer be accessible from the main screen. You can easily view the most relevant news of recent days by opening Chrome and closing all tabs, of course.

News is deactivated

  • The first thing you have to do is go to the main screen of your Samsung phone.
  • Once you are on said screen, you will need to press and hold somewhere where there is no shortcut or widget.
  • This will display a small menu with several options. You will have to click on the one that says “Settings”.
  • Finally, you will need to disable the function called “Add media page to Home”.

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, all Samsung mobile devices allow you to deactivate this function. If for some reason you can’t find it, you will have to update your mobile’s Android .

Without further ado, we want to remind you that there are countless tricks to personalize Google Discover , so some of them could convince you to keep this function to access the latest news directly.
