HTC Blinkfeed app is undoubtedly one of the best apps that come pre-installed with any HTC device. Because of its super smooth UI, it has been the apple of eye for HTC users.
However, HTC left millions of hearts broken when they announced the introduction of ads in Blinkfeed. A new Blinkfeed update that rolled out recently added the ability to show ads in between the feeds.
In the blog post HTC mentioned that the advertisements will be limited in number and will blend in between the feeds. For now, the advertisements will be shown in a few markets only and will expand to other markets in the future.
Ads in BlinkFeed will be clearly marked with a Sponsored label or a Buy Now button and will look something like this.
Just like us, are you also annoyed with this step of HTC? Well, worry not. Today we are here with a way by which you can turn off Blinkfeed ads on your HTC and live tension free.
How To Disable BlinkFeed ads
To Turn off BlinkFeed ads you just need to follow the below mentioned steps.
