ADS WHILE TAKING PICTURES???

I get it that in order to enjoy free content we need to wait for advertisements, but this is the third fricking time that while trying to take a picture at just the right moment, a stupid advertisement came up and I missed the moment.

How is advertising gone so far as to interrupt my own phone functions when not even in an app.  All apps are closed, and these are google supported ads.  Each ad has been about a particular google service.

If this is how Google operates, I'll go back to Apple.  This is nuts.

However, because the Google product is really good, I would like to give it a chance that it's just my phone that is doing this.

Any ideas?

I've never had an ad when taking a picture. Are you using an other application for the camera besides the camera app included on the phone? Custom launcher or lock screen?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Found it!

For some reason Buzzvideo, the app, launched ads on the camera screen, other apps as well.  When I turned off buzz video notifications,. I haven't seen one since.  Thanks for the heads up!
