HTC One M7, M8, M9 Users Troubled With ‘Fantastic Four’ Notification Ads, BlissPop Android 5.1.1 Custom Lollipop ROM Arrives For the M8, And More

HTC further declared that these will be native ads only; looking similar to most other BlinkFeed content and the only difference would be the presence of a label “Sponsored” on them.

Also, users will only get to see specific ads, depending upon their likes and interests perceived through the content they click on BlinkFeed. In what appears to be a rather shrewd scheme, HTC failed to mention any details about notification ads in the future. Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem.

HTC users can simply open the Settings App, head over to Sound and Notifications; choose App Notifications and then Sense Home. From here, users simply need to turn off Sense notifications and bid a scathing farewell to notification ads forever.

In other news, a new updated version of the BlissPop custom ROM is now available for the HTC’s 2014 flagship smartphone, the One M8. This latest piece of firmware is based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) 5.1.1 Lollipop.

It has a size of 280MB and comes with various performance tweaks, new features and changes to improve user experience. In the meantime, HTC hasn’t revealed anything about the arrival of Android Lollipop 5.1 official update for the HTC One M9 and older devices like the M8.

Stay tuned for additional news, reports and updates from the world of technology!
