Install Stock firmware on Samsung Galaxy S9

The Samsung Galaxy S9 has pre-installed an app that sounds like “Game Launcher“. The Game Launcher can organize the games you have installed on the smartphone and also save scores etc. in the cloud. Thus, for example, you no longer have problems transferring saved games between Galaxy devices.

However, if you do not want to use this feature, you can disable the Game Launcher on the Samsung Galaxy S9. Uninstalling is unfortunately not possible because this app is permanently integrated into the Android firmware. This would only be possible with root privileges, which we will not go into here.

Turn off Game Launcher feature for the Samsung Galaxy S9

  1. From the Home screen, open the App menu and then Settings
  2. Now select “Advanced Features” and in the next submenu “Games”
  3. You will now see the “Game Launcher” feature – disable it by setting the slider to “Off” – Done!

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

  1. I have the Game Launcher on my Galaxy Tab S3, and the problem isn’t disabling it — that’s easy enough — but that when Samsung pushed it to my device as part of the last update, it sucked in all of my games and removed them from everywhere they’d been. My games appear _only_ in the Game Launcher; they no longer appear in the Apps list, and any icons I’d dragged onto a screen page vanished. When I disable the Game Launcher, it’s as if I had no games installed at all, except that I can see them in the ‘installed apps’ list in Settings.
