Now onwards you will not be able to use free themes for Galaxy smartphones. Samsung has stopped offering free themes, now you can only use free themes for two weeks from Android Pie.
Most of the Samsung smartphone comes along with free Samsung themes. This enables the users to change the appearance of the software on Samsung Galaxy. The Samsung app comes with hundreds of themes that allow you to change the background, icons and menu colors of your devices. Earlier everything was offered for free but now with the advent of Android Pie, this will change.
No Free Samsung Themes
Now you will only be allowed to use free themes for two weeks. Irrespective if you are using a Samsung theme or a Theme developed by an individual developer the Samsung app works only for two weeks. On completion of the two weeks trial period, your smartphone will get back the default theme.
Before the trial period ends Samsung will warn its users several times. On installing the free theme you are immediately notified that it is available for fourteen days only. You will receive another notification in ten minutes before your trial period expires. Samsung recommends you various free themes you available in its notification so you can keep changing.
Samsung stated that the changes have been made as their designers help in making a high-quality product to provide stable and satisfying services. This might be a move made by Samsung to encourage users to choose paid themes frequently. Though almost all popular themes are free so it still remains to be seen whether this move by Samsung will help developers.
The change will only affect smartphones with Android Pie 9.0 version, it will take some time before the OS lands up on Samsung smartphones. Galaxy S9 user in selected countries like Germany and South Korea have received a preliminary version of Android Pie update. The final version will reach around the first month of 2019. After this, all updates for all other Samsung device will follow.
