Samsung Expands Self-Repair Program with Foldables & Home Entertainment!



Samsung is expanding its self-repairing program with more models, product categories, and parts available to enable a wider variety of repairs. For your information, the repair program of Samsung has been running for a long time. It was started back in August 2022, but it has limited this program to some limited devices. But now it has expanded the program and included foldable devices as well.

Now the Samsung self-repairing program also supports fourteen Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Tab S9 series, Galaxy Book 2 series, and more. Apart from these devices, the program now also includes some home-based devices, such as the Feestyle 2nd Gen projector.

On the account of expansion, Samsung officials stated, “We know that consumers want reliable and convenient repair options to keep their devices up and running. This expansion is one more way Samsung is showing its continued commitment to provide our customers with choice,”

Mark Williams, Vice President of Customer Care at Samsung Electronics America.

“For those who want to take repairs into their own hands, we’re supplying them with more options for a wider array of products to extend the life of the products they love.”

“Encompass has been a trusted distributor of Samsung OEM replacement parts for many years, and this expansion to new product categories will play a critical role in continuing to empower Samsung customers to easily repair equipment and extend the life cycle of their products,” said

Robert Coolidge, President and CEO of Encompass Supply Chain Solutions

“Samsung’s self-repair program aligns with Encompass’ goal to improve the accessibility of mission-critical parts for customers while reducing waste and enabling significant cost savings.”

What is a self-repair program?

With the self-repairing program, the company provides solutions regarding how consumers can easily repair their devices. For instance, on a phone or tablet, users can fix the speakers, SIM tray, side key, as well as the single display assemblies, back glass, and charging ports. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Book owners will be able to replay the left and right speakers and fans. In this program, consumers will also get low-cost tool kits that come with a bundle of parts, or they can also purchase them separately.

What’s the motive of this self-repair program?

With this self-repairing program, Samsung aims to decrease e-waste, and to do that, the company has provided consumers with a solution on how they can fix their device issues related to hardware.

Google Weather Redesign Now Available on More Android Devices




Google revamped its Google Weather app to make it more user-friendly and enhance the experience by bringing with it Material You design standards.

Google’s Weather app has received a major renovation with Material You aesthetics and additional information. After being available on Pixel devices since September 2023 and Samsung Galaxy devices since December, Google finally decided to push it out to most Android devices in May 2024. 

It is being reported that the new Google Weather app is appearing on many more manufacturers’ Android devices, except Pixels and Samsungs. The app has been spotted on various devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, the OnePlus Open, the Honor Magic 6 RSR, and even an older Nokia 4.2 running Android 11. 

For so long, its availability was limited to specific devices; now, finally, Google has started rolling it out widely. Users who have access to the new Weather app will also have noticed a recent update for the Google app. The new app introduces a simpler layout with hourly and 10-day forecasts on a single page, replacing the multiple tabs of the old application. Earlier this year, in February, Google updated its At a Glance and Weather widget icons on Pixel smartphones. 

The Weather app is not the only application that Google has brought weather data to. Previously, it was reported that the company was finally bringing real-time weather information within Google Maps; however, that has been available for years on iOS. The Google Weather app’s redesign is highly pleasing to the eyes, and the Material You Impact is quite notably on display.

Samsung TV Plus Still Alive: Shutting Down Notice Was An Error




A nightmare broke out; the Samsung TV Plus is not going anywhere, at least for now. A couple of days ago, Family Hub Refrigerator users received a notice that Samsung TV Plus is shutting down and will only be available in Mexico. Finally, Samsung TV Plus is still running and not going anywhere. 

Previously, we reported that Samsung TV Plus would soon shut down since Samsung sent a notice to some Family Hub refrigerators and TV owners regarding the shutdown in the USA. The new report revealed that Samsung has clarified that the notice was just an error and asked users to disregard it. Samsung TV Plus said it is not going away anywhere. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by @SamsungTVPlus stating, “Oops! You can disregard that Family Hub notification. This was an error—we’re not going anywhere! 

Some users say one of the most used smart features on their Family Hub refrigerator is Samsung TV Plus; on the other side, others believe that they prefer a Samsung TV over TVs from other brands because of Samsung TV Plus. It is a completely free and ad-supported video streaming service that offers documentaries, movies, news, and TV shows across various genres. 

Their service does not ask for a signup or any credit card, so you can easily start using it. The brand made it available on Galaxy smartphones, high-end refrigerators, tables, and TVs.
