ANT Radio Service enables one of your phone's most power efficient wireless connections called ANT, similar to Wi-Fi or NPC. Interconnect your many gadgets with ANT to make the best of the technology you’ve got.

There are many sports, fitness and health devices and gadgets that require this technology: heart rate sensors, fitness equipment, cycling products, weight scales and more. These will be much easier to operate using ANT Radio Service. ANT works great with low data rate applications such as sensors, monitors, beacons, and many more.

In the near future, this technology will have many more applications in real life like home automation control of lighting, temperature and door lock functions, etc.

When you’ve got the ANT Radio Service installed on your phone, you don’t have to worry about it running in the background. It will only start when you open the applications that need the ANT connection.

Do you want to develop ANT applications? Connecting devices and transferring data is simple using the ANT API. These APIs are free to use. More information is available at

When installing the app you will be asked certain permissions: Full Network Access (only required for certain purposes like app development; it will only communicate with the local PC if needed and will never use your Internet data for downloads or uploads); Modify System Settings (this allows you to decide whether ANT should be turned off or kept on when Airplane mode is activated); and Bluetooth Admin (on certain hardware configurations, ANT might need a Bluetooth connection. Don't worry, this service will not start bluetooth scans or create bluetooth connections).

If your device doesn’t have the pre-installed components that the manufacturer needs to put in for ANT to work, you might still be able to use ANT+. For more info, check

Link all your health and sports gadgets using the most power efficient wireless connection around by using the ANT Radio Service. 

App ChangeLog

  • Note: This service may be pre-installed by your device manufacturer to allow the ANT wireless hardware already present in your mobile device to operate. If you do not use this feature it will remain inactive.
  • v.4.15:
  • -Support more private network keys
  • -Various bug fixes
  • [Full changelog coming on our GitHub SDK README.]

    Can't uninstall so I just disabled the app and also force stopped it. Actually went into my apps to try to uninstall. Can't be done. Things like this, where you can't uninstall really grinds my gears. I "last used this app" just under A YEAR AGO! Yet, I have never opened the app... At least willingly.

  2. Sue D-avatar

    что это This is an INSTALLED App, (to the person who says it can be UNINSTALLED) you are wrong!!! It cannot be! Its an app which allows BigBrother to Control pretty much every aspect of your phone, it listens, it watches, it records, it changes the settings, it allows third world countries to use it for Amazon businesses, for teaching english programs, etc, etc. Come on do your research. Call it a conspiracy theory if that's what helps you sleep at night. HELLO!! REALITY CHECK, you are not in control.

  3. Crystal Denn-avatar

    что это за программа I will never understand why apps come on devices and cannot be removed by the customer that never uses it. It is not essential for what I use on my device. I have never opened it and don't even know what it is. Yet it uses my internal storage and can only be disabled and force stopped. It makes no sense to me. If I don't use it why can't I take it off my device???

    samsung Google add on that's not appropriate for my device, can't seem to delete it, can't contact Google, so I'm just reviewing it, 3 different apps with this ANT RADIO SERVICE showed up and none of them have been used in the 18 weeks since installed without my knowledge. I got rid of one but the other 2 won't move. Don't ya just love it, nope!

    зачем нужен Can't uninstall. It might help if it were explained what 'enabling ANT and ANT+' actually accomplishes. We are told that ANT+ enables FitBit et al to communicate via internet, but disabling it didn't seem to have any ill effect. Unused factory-installed apps usurp storage space that prevents installing USEFUL apps.

  6. Susan Atkinson-avatar

    Susan Atkinson


    app I agree with all previous comments. I've tried to uninstall this and other unwanted apps several times to no avail. I have no illusions that Samsung would consider any review to address the issue of pre-installed apps and a user's ability to uninstall those that are unwanted.

    это 2021 and still forced to have this bloatware, still no option to remove this. For those who like or live this great. I'm happy for you. I don't use it, when I tried it I didn't like it. But, i can't remove it. So that means it's malware or bloatware. I have no option, it takes precious space on device. No choice, take it you will like it

    android I'm sorry to have to give this reinstalled app onlien average to stars, but really, liver heard of a radio service for ants? Ants? Holy Mongolian Milwaukee! Sounds a built-in antennas, I doubt they need a service anyway! I'm not sure about this, I'll have to ask my uncle to ask my aunt about it.

    nedir ANT+ works much better with fitness devices than Bluetooth... if your device supports it (built into some Samsung devices). It connects more easily, seems more stable and drops less.

    Sounds like me and more than half the other ppl in the reviews don't have a clue how in the world we got this forced app that we can't prematurely remove from our phones! How the the world does this app have 4 stars if I could I would give it a negative plus plus star! Please delete yourself from everyone's device your just taking up unwanted space!

    According to another user it's short for antenna I believe it's supposed to help your phone work faster on the LTE networks Mine showed up after one of my latest updates On my phone so it's a Samsung thing However I noticed when I disabled it I I was not on LTE speeds

    I haven't quite understand about the antenna radio service haven't used it it's all I really can say about it and I wondering about this app how do I believe that it works the radio what is it used for is it for signals the weather what does it do if I can get a feedback from this app so I can learn more cuz I'm having trouble with a lot and basically does everything so do I necessarily need all these other apps like Facebook and messenger I use it but I'm not a Facebook person

    ANT 🐜 IS REMOVABLE. Go to settings, click on Ant 🐜 icon, then you have to click on everything there that is on, like Notifications, storage, battery 🔋, etc. Don't miss any, go through each one, and anything that is on: TURN IT OFF. And the last one you get to, takes you to Google Play Store (Ant 🐜), there in the upper left side, click on the uninstall button. And that button works, as you see 👀 it removed from your Cellphone 📱. Reminder: When you go to Storage, also click on the Clear Data

    This app is HORRIBLE! Why can't I remove this app? WHY did it come pre-installed on a phone I own out right??! My new iPhone won't have this problem! Thank you for making the decision for me to finally make the switch from android to Apple! 🙌🔥🥳

    I want it off my phone, but can't seem to get rid of it. It makes system changes and now I believe it's what's installing unwanted games without my permission. You can't uninstall, but you can take all their permissions away and disable them.

    This app was installed on a recent update and now I have issues with my jbuds bluetooth ear bud staying connected as well as my watch. My watch just loses it's connection and then finds it again. Not worth having on my phone with all the issues it has caused. 😖😤😠😡

    Ant is removable. You have to do the update and once you do it, it will show up in your apps in the settings and you can disable it. Hope this helps 👍

I posted my review & Google Play had the unmitigated to thank me for helping others CHOOSE which apps to install! What a load of B.S! I spent this much to have Google force all kinds off apps on me?!

    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.

    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

    This app radios everything you do to the cloud. Once it arrives, an AI adds it to the "you" data repository. From this it creates a picture of you that is more accurate than your self image. It will be able to predict how you will react to any possible situation. It knows how to modify your responses to achieve a desired outcome. The only way to opt out is to discard your phone.

    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.

  34. SpEd-avatar



    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  38. Matthew Weston-avatar

    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

    Garbage. When you uninstall. It doesnt disappear from your installed apps selection on play store. And the is also a plug in app that goes with it. When you uninstall any other app. It disappears from your list. And it wasnt preinstalled on my device. I downloaded from play store without reading reviews. If I had. I would have never installed.

    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.

    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

Yet even though I clear data ,click off permissions uninstall updates hit force stop and disable ! It just helps its self back to my system storage and data !I can't update MY choice of apps because of these useless garbage taking and adding all the time !

    So this says I updated it in June 2020, but that's impossible since I never update apps I don't use. Like this one. That means it updated itself somehow. Also, it's interesting how this app isn't even on my phone, yet shows up in my list of apps that needs to be updated. STOP FORCING APPS ON US.

    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.

    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.

    Totalitarian stuff like this is why I root my cellphone. With root access, you can fully remove any app you like. ANT was one of the ones I deleted. Search for XDA on DuckDuckGo, & search for a guide to root your phone on XDA. Then, install Titanium Backup. Titanium fully removes these pesky apps that you normally can't remove without root access. I get that the devs insist this isn't Bloatware (yes, it is) or Spyware, but no OS should block end-user removal of any app. I miss WindowsPhone..

    THIS APP WAS NOT FACTORY INSTALLED! as stated in the Term & Service agreement. I DID NOT INSTALL THIS APP! An app that was NEVER on my phone that I know nothing about or what it does or what it's for just appeared on my phone out of nowhere and now I can't get rid of it. I have a MAJOR issue with this and according to a few other reviews I skimmed through it appears this isn't an isolated incident. You guys better fix this and fix this NOW because I never authorized the download of this app to my phone.

    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.

    This is a pre installed app. no one loaded it when u weren't looking. why it's called radio and has nothing to do w music, is beyond me. 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.

    These apps that installed without permission only drains the battery. I don't need this on my phone.

    As an adult I always had trouble connecting with people so I would go out to the yard in the evenings to play with ANTS. I realized quickly had no way of communicating. Then suddenly I see that my phone came preinstalled with ANT & ANT+, I WAS SO SHOCKED! the universe had answer my communication problems with THE ANTS colonies in my neighborhood! I am now able to communicate with the Queen ANT, and her daughter and I are very very close. I AM NO LONGER LONELY! THANK YOU ANT RADIO SERVICE!

    Tired of paying for a phone then not being able to choose EVERY app I use on there an half my space already being taken by apps like these. I have no need for this app an I'd like it off my device asap... It should of ALWAYS been that if you fully own your phone then you can Uninstall any or all apps you want. It's appalling to see so many complaints about the same thing yet no response from you all such a absent display of customer service or just a bad one to me...

    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!

  59. TinkaLittleFaith-avatar



    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.

    It's literally just backend drivers and such for ANT Hardware of your phone uses it for NFC and the like. Not bloat or spyware it would be there regardless; Android has simply moved to app-based modules for update flexibility (something google has been talking about for years) rather than just Android Services itself.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I don't know what the hell it does! I am trying to find out how to un install. My phone has intrusive ads. I have removed everything except this. I am not sure it's this app causing the ads but there isn't much left on my phone to generate ads.

    More factory installed bloatware that can't be uninstalled completely. Just takes up space. It should have been made as a user download and install. Not forced on phone owners that will never use it.

    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.

    As this is a system App, I don't think it should be available for review. But since it is, and I don't believe it is ever used by my apps, and it's unremoveable, it's just another 15 to 20 megabytes of wasted space on my phone. Something I cannot afford.

    Absolutely unacceptable preinstalled rubbish. This integrated nonsense needs to stop, with all businesses, whom think it clever to market to niche users for avaricious ends. This app and it's ilk should only be installed with wearables and the like. Instead of wasting already precious save space. This is one of the signs of development laziness to save cost at user expense. Be better than yesterday samsung/Android.

    Thank you to all the people who left very informative comments about ANT communication. I never realized that ANT's were such empathetic insects. ANT Radio Service has allowed me to cultivate a ever growing network of ANT friends. The worker's have been amazing, helping me cope w/the stress of work and coworkers. Soilder's have taught me about self defense and the best places to sting a would be assailant. I'm closest to the Queen ANT, her maternal nature has been a emotional lifesaver.

    Yet another app on my tablet forced upon me by Samsung. They don't even ask if I want it, they just keep shoveling the bloatware. I won't be buying another Samsung device, as company policy seems to be to stuff as many apps as possible on my device without giving me a choice in the matter.

    If someone out there ever offers a phone that you can delete pre-installed apps that you have no need for now or forever even with an additional $$$ charge I would definitely buy it!!! I just hate the fact that I buy a phone and have no control over what apps are on it.

    Uninstall just keep re installing itself built some sort of hidden backup But when I find it and eliminate the problem Hopefully police wont be able to abuse the app in order to break constitutional laws and local police can actually get to investigate their own jurisdictions rather than let homeland crime grow in the cities that they get paid to serve. Also add auto update after disabling which is a real problem

But for the rest of us who have this forced and locked onto our phones, its true that its used as a all accses pass to all accounts, info, gps, email, banking, and malicious & Spyware. Do some research and you will find that there are programs coded to attach itself to the program for taking admen rights away. Can get it from gethub & other sights.

    Bloatware. tired of having half my gigs taken up with a new phone, let alone more added with updates. 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

    You idiots that have no idea what this app is and does write bad reviews. That's funny.

If you could read you would know that.

    I can't find any real info on what ANT does, who put it there and why, but after scanning both good and bad reviews, I am sure that it could NOT possibly be good. A respectable product would boast about how great it is and let you know WHY/HOW/ it helps, or how it got there. But instead of info, MOST of the 5-star reviews are shameless obvious FAKES which validate and compound my previous doubts about ANT services. How is that good business?

    Let's face some facts. 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!

    Should be removable. Instead, users can only uninstall updates. The app then remains, hidden from view, as the Play store indicates: the only option is to update the app, not remove it. My next phone will not be a Samsung.

    Wouldn't it be great if bloatware like this was optional, rather than having it pre-installed on our phones with no option of uninstalling it? My Samson Galaxy came with dozens and dozens of "bundled" apps I'll never use, and which I'm not allowed to uninstall—on my own phone! Software never used to be like this. We always had a choice. I don't know why device makes decided to become so aggressive this way, but it's overbearing and creepy.
