Disable Samsung Galaxy S9 Game Launcher - How to use

The Samsung Galaxy S9 preinstalled an app called "Game Launcher". Game Launcher can organize the games you have installed on your smartphone and also save games in the cloud.

This means, for example, that you no longer have problems transferring scores between Galaxy devices. If you do not want to use this feature, you can deactivate the Game Launcher on the Samsung Galaxy S9. Uninstalling is not possible, because this app is integrated in the Android firmware.

This would only be possible with root rights, which we will not go into further here.

Switch off the Game Launcher function for the Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung Galaxy S9 Hardware

1. Open the App menu from the start screen and then the settings

2. Select "Advanced Functions" here and in the next submenu "Games" on

3. You will now see the function "Game Launcher" - Deactivate it by setting the slider to "Off" - done!

The Game Launcher is now inactive and should not disturb you anymore.

Even after disabling, I still dont get why it shows up. It takes up too much of the screen for me, compared to the previous update where it COULD be hidden. Not too happy with this

I went into the app settings and disabled all permissions, appear on top, change system settings, and whatever notifications I can. Haven't seen the game tool on the nav bar so far.

I've always preferred Android phones and specifically Samsung until they started this business of locking me into functions I don't use. I cannot wait to trade in my S9 for anything apple now

Even "disabled" as shown in instructions, Game Launcher stays active and replaces navication bar. How to get rid of this bloatware?
