At the MWC 2021 (Mobile World Congress) exhibition, Samsung Electronics announced for the first time the new One UI Watch, created in cooperation with Google.
Earlier, at the Google I / O 2021 developer conference, Google announced that Samsung would release watches on the Wear OS smartwatch platform, abandoning the branded Tizen. Now Samsung has introduced a new interface.
Samsung has also confirmed that the next version of the Galaxy Watch will be the first device to support the One UI Watch platform and shell with Google. A detailed presentation will take place at the Galaxy Unpacked event this summer.
According to the Korean manufacturer, the new platform will provide increased productivity, seamless interaction between wearable devices and mobile gadgets on Android, as well as access to a variety of applications from the Google Play store.
For example, as soon as compatible applications are installed on the smartphone, they will be downloaded to the wearable device – if the “Watch” service on the smartphone indicates the time in certain cities, the same data will be shown on the Galaxy Watch, and by blocking calls and messages on the watch, the user will disable them on the smartphone as well.
For developers, Samsung promises an improved tool for creating new watch faces.
Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra users will soon be able to try out Android 13 and One UI 5.0. The public beta version of the firmware will be released in mid-July
Rumors attributed the release of the public beta version of the One UI 5.0 interface based on Android 13 in July this year, and now the source has given a little more detail on this matter. The “window” for the release of the beta version of One UI 5.0 has been clarified – this will happen in the third week of July, from the 11th to the 17th.
The flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S22 series will be the first to receive One UI 5.0, which is logical. But the source writes that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will join the beta testing program pretty quickly. Well, the final version of One UI 5.0 will appear only in October. However, this is still earlier than the release of One UI 4.0 took place at one time.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
