What happened to the Smartthings Panel?

I don’t know which version this was changed in, but when I accessed the main pull-down menu, SmartThings panel used to have my TV right there, and a simple tap opened further options, and I was then able to access the TV remote control for example.
Now all of a sudden it’s gone, replaced simply by “media” and “devices”. So now you have to tap devices, then you get a list (don’t tap the TV tile here, it will just turn the TV off). Next you have to tap the SmartThings icon at the top right, which opens the home screen. Then tap your TV, and only then can you get the remote up.
So my question is what happened to the original panel? And is there any way to get it back?
I found an article on Samsung site that explained how to enable the panel in SmartThings settings, but that article must be outdated, as the option no longer exists.

Samsung S10+, android 9. SmartThings 1.7.38-21. Samsung smart tv (2018).

I’ve noticed the same thing. anyone have a answer yet. I’d really like to get the smartthings panel back.

Yup, here too.
Having the drag down panel worked really well, my most used devices were right there.
The panel dissappeared and so did the option to bring it back.
At least a widget please devs, but the panel was useful.
