The company has told this through a post in its official forums that this content recommendation system would support apps and commercial links in the base operating system
“To continue offering more surprises for you and maintain a healthy and sustainable business model, we have introduced commercial content recommendation in the OS. Realme phones with ColorOS 6 and above will receive such recommendation updates. We encourage you to update the system regularly to enjoy a better operating experience and receive the latest Android security patches,” the Chinese phone maker added this in its note.
Realme has also provided the users with an option to remove the ads from their device.You need to opt-out recommendations from every application in Xiaomi. However Realme gives you a choice from a single setting to disable ads.
