FAQ:
How did this app get on my phone and is it spyware? 
This service is standard software, included by the manufacturer of your phone. It is not illegally downloaded, and it is not spyware. It will not cause system malfunctions or pop-up ads to appear. It is not bloatware and typically uses a max of 20 MB of space. For example, on a 16GB phone, this service takes up 0.0013% of space. We do not pay phone manufacturers to have this service pre-installed. 

How can I remove this service? 
Since this service is standard software, you’re unable to delete it from your phone. Instead, you can disable this service by following the manufacturer’s instructions. The typical process is: settings>applications>application manager>appropriate app>force stop>disable

Disabling this service will not affect your phone’s software. If, in the future, you require the ability to connect to services and devices via ANT+, just enable the service again. 

NOTE: Since this is a factory installed service, it may enable/re-download if you reset and/or update your phone. Don’t panic! Just follow the instructions to disable it again. 

Does this service track me without my knowledge?
No. The ANT Radio Service and ANT+ Plugins Service applications provide a wireless connectivity service, similar to Bluetooth or WiFi, but with very low power. These services do not collect any personal data.

Is it difficult to develop an app with ANT+ capabilities and is there a fee? 
Using the ANT+ plugins in your app to communicate with ANT+ devices is quick, easy, free and uses a simple API. Visit the ANT Android Developer page (http://www.thisisant.com/developer/ant/ant-in-android) for more information and to download the SDK. 

How do I know if I own any ANT enabled products?

    It is NOT spyware, bloatware, adware, or any sort of malware. If your WiFi driver showed up in Google Play as an app would you be freaking out that it's spyware, adware and what-not? I don't think so. So again: This will NOT hurt your phone/tablet/guinea pig and is just a driver for hardware present in your device. Plus, it takes up no nore than 20 MB of space, so to all people complaining: What sort of potato are you using? BTW, just root if you want this off your phone :D

    app Worked perfectly. I was able to connect my ANT+ heart rate monitor to my tablet and Rouvy was able to connect! I used a cheap Micro USB (Male) to USB 2.0 (Female) Adapter and an old ANT+ usb key that came with my old Garmin Forerunner. With the software installed, no configuration was needed. I just attached the ANT key to the cable which I then plugged into the tablet and Rouvy found the heart rate monitor! Saved me a lot of money as I did not need to buy another heart rate monitor! Thanks to Google! For USB support, this software has to be installed together with ANT USB Service ANT+ ANT+ Plugins Service ANT+ My tablet is a Lennovo running Android 9. This software is for tablets that do not have ANT+ support already builtin.

    STOP TRIPPING!! Its not a radio its FM frequency to connect Smart Watches and Fit Bit type devices so it can communicate with your phone. I bought a Fitbit at Christmas and all of a sudden I see this app on my phone. It didn't come pre-installed on my Samsung S8. It on newer versions now to help make the connection easier for Smart Watches. It helps wrist devices and the app on your phone communicate. It's NOT Spyware, Bloatware or adware.

    This app and its second part have been installed on my devices since way back in 2012 as far as i can remember..im just thinking some of the technology that it partners with wasn't even out yet. I dont personally use alot of the services mentioned in other post and i dont think the app is making my device less optimal. I own the hardware they own the software.

    I understand what people are explaining about the app being preinstalled, and it is supposed to be helping the phone. However, I get paranoid easily especially since I opened a photo stating that people should be aware of a particular URL link because it deals with sex trafficking and THIS APP RANDOMLY STARTED DOWNLOADING... 🤦🏼‍♀️ if this is really the case then I apologize for my judgement without looking at ALL the reviews and I really do hope it's just a preinstalled app. Thank you.

    The default sound setting of this app is set so low that I have to push the volume control to maximum in order to hear properly. However, the problem comes when I switch from it (the radio) to another audio app like t he music player or video player because I'd have pushed the volume so high that my eardrums are almost damaged by the sudden change in noise levels. Then I have to push the volume way down low to a comfortable level which is too low on the radio.

    This is a very dangerous app and should not be downloaded at any cost. Hackers use it to spy on you. Still don't know why I cannot get this app off my device and also unable to deactivate. This app tracks you and spy's on you. Beware.

    The inbuilt radio operates much smoother than the ones that are added later.For the radio frequency it needs to be compatible to the device and as such you choose the stations of your choice and this helps in connecting easy.

    A critical app for active people (runners, cyclists, triathletes, skiers). ANT Radio Service allows things like heart rate monitors, fitness equipment, garmin watches, etc, to connect to your phone & apps using the ANT+ protocol (much more effective than bluetooth and allows multiple connections). It is NOT some secret gov't conspiracy. Man some of you are real pieces of work. Unfortunately with Android Pie, built-in ANT+ seems to have been forgotten, which is a bummer.

    I found nice music after I downloaded the app, but didn't use it enough & I tried to uninstall it after zero usage. This app doesn't display an obvious way of uninstalling. Feels like I'm being held hostage. Funny but true. ...1 star because I feel I'm being forced to keep something I don't need!

    How did this app get on my phone and is it spyware? .... Bloatware.... Check permissions.... Yes this is an app that is preinstalled because this company paid Samsung or Google. The permissions to access sensitive information is present. It's funny when the developer has to say the app isn't spyware or bloatware because most of the time that is not true. Open source the code of the app so we, as the users, can see if your claims are true.

    I have no idea how this useless made its way onto my phone as I don't use it an have no useful need for it because it serves no relevant purpose in supporting anything of Value working functionality or otherwise. So if your are having problems deleting this app is I was, I found that you must go all the back into your Play Store enter Ant Radio Station an Hit the Uninstall tab to be rid of it.

If this app's purpose had been to be helpful to users as opposed to privacy data gathering for others (I'm looking at you, Verizon, Samsung, and developer, et al), we'd be able to delete it if we wanted. Should it be any surprise that the developer assures us that it's entirely harmless? Sheesh!

    I assumed this was yet another streaming music app. Upon furter investigation, I have no idea what it is, what it's for, or what it does. All their website says is that it's preinatalled and makes certain hardware function. My WiFi and bluetooth works just fine without it. All I can find are mentions of fitness devices, which I don't have. Why preinstall this on everyones phone if it's only useful to a select group of consumers? Try telling people what this is.

    The world is full of stupid people. This is an app that runs in the background and only when it's needed. It doesn't drain resources or battery. It's necessary to run the hardware for wireless functions. Without it you have a $600-$1200 slab of plastic and glass that doesn't do much of anything. If you don't want it... settings>apps>ant>force stop>yes>storage>clear data>yes>disable>yes. It's that simple. Be sure to come back to let us all know how things worked out. If you still can. Good luck.

    First, this isn't a radio for listening. It allows other devices, like heart rate monitors (bought separately, not an app) to transmit info to and from your phone. Got any type of fitness gear? That's how they communicate. Blood pressure machines (not apps) use it. It is not removable for uninformed users who don't research to understand what it is or does. Y'all need a Samsung J3 and you'll be fine. This is a BMW high performance phone. You need a Ford Focus.

    This service is similar (not part of) to the system components that enable other forms of wireless connectivity on your phone (ie. WiFi, NFC) and will NOT run or use system resources unless you start an app THAT REQUIRES ANT wireless communication. pre-installed by your device manufacturer to allow the built-in ANT wireless hardware already present in your mobile device to operate. If you do not intend to use this feature there will be no impact to your system and no further action is required.

    I thought this was a FM radio emulator app, which is useless to American users. We're not supposed to be able to use our phones as a FM radio reciever anymore. I thought "I can't use this, I don't need it, I'll just disable it through the app manager since I can't uninstall it. It just robs me of my available free space. I now see that it is something entirely useful and necessary and not at all what I thought it was for to begin with. It is needed for the phone to communicate via wifi/NFC

    I, like others, have no need for this App. There is no way to Uninstall or Disable by default means if it is something you do not wish to have eating up storage. It is not essential for device operation so you should be able to, at the minimum, Disable it. Gave 2 Star because unable to Uninstall or Disable. Can not rate higher since I have no need for this App.

    Not sure about the audio quality of the radio, since I can't listen at the frequency that ants hear on. Two stars for the functionality I don't use because I don't own a smart watch and don't use exercise equipment. Three more stars for all the laughs I've had reading comments from idiots complaining about this 1MB app being bloatware and invasion of privacy and they don't know why an app other than Angry Birds is on their phone and Samsung-bad-Apple-is-my-hero. If you have this app, it's because your phone has ANT hardware that won't work without it, and that is how your phone can play Game of Thrones on the treadmill and count your steps when you sneak to the fridge for a midnight snack. If you are unhappy, go buy a brick painted like an iPhone.

    It's a proprietary wireless standard that is basically same exact thing as Bluetooth. Entire first search page of Google is the Consortium trying to tell you how great it is. They say an advantage of it is that one device can transmit and multiple devices can read. That's not a breakthrough it's something every car radio has done since they were invented. Only an idiot would call this a driver its a third-party proprietary app that uses the Android cell and Wi-Fi radio drivers

    As a runner with 10 half marathons, a dozen or so 5ks, a 10k, and countless hours of training and just general running I realize very well what ANT is. I have no ant devices. I might use some in the future but until that time, this service does not belong on my phone. To all those saying it only takes up X amount of space, go away. If your phone has room to spare I'm happy for you. But some of us can't afford larger amounts of memory or just don't like having things installed we have no control over. Having ranted I'll say this isn't a conspiracy, its not a hacker app, You don't need it. Your device will function without this service. It can be very useful for those that use ant devices. I am currently not using and such devices.

    I think NO app should ever be added to my phone unless the developer first sends me (via snail mail) full documentation about it, how it works, why I need it, pays me (in cash, local currency only) for the use of space on my equipment, and then lets ME decide whether I want it or not. Besides, we don't have ants in FL, the palmetto bugs ate them all. Bwahahaha!

    I have an LG phone that did *not* come with this app pre-installed and unremovable. It also allows me to selectively accept permissions (i.e., Facebook doesn't have access to my media files). Zero bloatware. Decided to install 🐜+ for Endomondo (?), and maybe it will help with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Everyone here thinking Samsung and iPhone are the only two options have their heads in the digital cloud. Have fun spending thousands of 💰 💰 for compromised, unsecured devices.

    ANT is a communication protocol like WiFi or Bluetooth, and allows your phone to connect to things like smart watches, activity trackers, studio bikes at the gym, even home-automation stuff. It is not Samsung specific, but some Samsung apps (and Garmin and Fujitsu and Adidas and Endomondo and ...) are enhanced by ANT technology. The size on my phone is less than 1MB - less than a single photo - so not exactly bloatware. This "app" allows the hardware to work so on a computer it's known as a "driver". Without it, features on your expensive phone will not work. If you don't update this app, some ANT devices you own may not work, or security leaks may not be fixed, leaving you unhappy. Apart from that the app has no features at all, it simply makes the hardware work so other apps can use it.

    Agree with all the other negative comments. Can't uninstall this app. I paid full hard earned cash straight out on my unlocked note 9 and have no choice , cant get rid of this app... excuse me but it's one of the reasons why I purchased unlocked straight out is to have no bloatware . Samsung stop allowing things like this, you'll find you are helping to shove away your customers, one reason we purchase your phone is for freedom of customization , etc to turn around to find out not much freedom is truly given when you look a little closer.

    Had no idea this was on my phone, since I purchased it, preinstalled, Verison. Been a while since I needed radio (certain messaging/calling). You dont actually use the app yourself. Your system/device knows when it needs access to ANT hardware built in & this app allows that. You probably have another ANT App w/Plug-ins in the name, incase you also need space, so it's goodbye for now. Glad I never saw it run w/any tool, this is great (Especially Verizon installed) it never ate up my battery! 5/5

It's a shame you buy a device w 32gb and 16 plus is unavailable due to preinstalled garbage. you want to get rid of preinstalled? root your device. then you have full control. you're welcome.

    I had this installed without knowing it. I had so many advertisings and I didnt get Prompt for passwords anymore to unlock my phone which was a big concern. Beita plugin was one of the things that pops up but i never installed it so i looked it up on play store and it brought me to Ant. I uninstalled Ant and now I dont get advertisings and actually have to put my lock pin in which is a relief. Idk what this is for but the fact that my phone cleared up when I uninstalled it is very concerning.

    These apps that installed without permission only drains the battery. I don't need this on my phone. Then when I want to delete it, it says by deleting this app may cause other apps on your phone system some problems. I am the one who should decide what I want and don't want on my phone since I'm the one who pays the bill. Thank you!!

    Tell me how to remove this app and all of the apps connected because there all spyware apps don't let people tell you your crazy because your not its it's literally a tap between you and you smart objects such as watches and other things so your not paranoid someone placed it there and it was the "developer's" remember that

    Useless bloatware that bribed their way into being added to the manufacturer's bloatware. I don't know anyone that uses this app. I don't have the proprietary equipment this app demands. I am certain that the associated costs time force this on unsuspecting consumers is paid by the poor bastards that use ant controlled devices.

    I'm laughing at the bad reviews saying Get Off My Phone! But it is a useful app! It does not have ANY malware and is NOT by hackers. You need this for your Wi-Fi to work. If you do not want this app think about taking your wifi away, never use ANY wifi on your phone or tablet and do not use mobile data ever.

    As many other intelligently reviews are given, I equally add weight. As an engineer & have 35+ yr in the software industry; is my credential for giving an informed statement. ANT is a protocol (like Bluetooth, WiFi, etc) but if I was to ask someone about their WiFi, they might not be able to tell me if it is 2.4 Mhz or 5 Mhz or both. They might not know whether their WiFi router brocadcasts on channel a/b/g/n or combos. ANT is added by manufacturers, to allow services to be created for DEVICES

    a totally useless app, if you're not burdened with superficial technology gadgets. of course once you're dependent upon such things like home locking by remote, then get your zombiephone lost or stolen, you've screwed yourself - you have nobody to blame but your self for getting hooked on an immature technology that shouldn't have been made available.

Im forced to have this unknown software that i dont want on my phone but i shouldnt worry because if i dont use the software it remains inactive.ok then if its unused and inactive then its also pointless being on my phone.why then cant i just delete it seeing as its apparently doing nothing more than taking up space on the phone? Because thats not true is it? Its doing something alright...i'll bet its always active. So what is it and whats it doing?

Also add auto update after disabling which is a real problem

    Requesting singular (1 party person) privacy and security to owner (eyes of the beholder). Not for retail sale or distribution. No 3rd party access. All other associated services and contracts with ANT services, products and merchandise are not affiliated with the original subject or accounts. I single and wish to remain as such. No relationships, no strings attached, no free sharing, no spying, no cheating, above all "Never without the holder/owners permission" I envoce "Ecto Gamit" if correct.

    This service does not work with current versions of Android 9. It does not request the access rights for the ANT+ hardware and there is no way to enable it manually. This renders the complete ANT+ system unusable with no way to recover.

Itsa bad marketing ploy to say I have 16 gigs available when 8 is automatically taken and then upgrades throw in more . And then patches because of bugs take even more. The consumer should be able to choose more of the Apps they want. Samsung pay, Samsung email, Direct TV are useless to me yet IM OUT OF ROOM. i have little room 4 my own apps

FYI if you use the WIFI on your phone you need this app, if you use bluetooth for anything, ie a watch, headphones, car, ext you need this app. It turns the radio frequencies from those devices into readable content.
