On Android Google discover is amazing, since it is recommending posts that or similar to your searches. That is one of the reasons that I like using Android over iPhone. But inside Samsung, you will see there is no Google discover, and Samsung has replaced Google discover with their own tool known as Samsung free. Once you enabled Google to discover, you will get news, blog posts, and even products.
Up to Android 11, manufacturers of the phone allowed their users to switch to Google discover or Google feed easily and set it as default. However, there are some manufacturers like Samsung and cough who have a history of forcing their own tools on the users. But still, there is no issue because even if inside Samsung you can change the Samsung free with the Google discover or Google feed.
The good news is that inside Samsung’s One UI 3.1 users are able to change the Samsung free with the Google discover but the users of One UI 4 are also able to change it.
location of Google discover is mostly on the left of your home screen, or when you open Google Chrome or other Google browser, if you scroll down you will see the google discover articles are recommended to you.

This was the time when users of the Samsung smartphones and tablets had to install a launcher in order to replace the Google discover with the Samsung daily. Thank God that finally Samsung realized and they released the one UI 3.1 and finally users are able to change the settings as they want.
