On the 5th of July, a Samsung Team member who is also a Community Manager & Administrator on the website introduced a new feature for the beloved Samsung Gallery App the Shared Albums excluding the requirement for a Samsung Account.
According to Reddit users, The shared album links feature added in One UI 4.1 allows anyone with a shared album link to view an album, even without having a Samsung account. This feature is similar to that offered by Google Photos. But now you can use this feature directly from your gallery without uploading to Google Photos.
How To Use One UI 4.1 Share Album Feature
- Select a shared album from the menu (those three lines right down there).
- Select the shared album and top album settings.
- Turn on the album link option now. The address of the link to the shared album and share link appear.
- The person who receives the link can look through the album on a web browser as well as download its contents.
This feature is also available on One 3.1, but there you can only share it with Samsung users. But this link-sharing option is better, so you can share with whomever you want to. It’s not limited to Samsung users.
Things To Keep In Mind:
The ‘Album link‘ option can only be turned on or off by the user who created the shared album.
a link can be used for 30 days after it has been created.
To share the album again, users will need to turn on the ‘Album link’
option again and create a new link.
If the user who created the shared album turns off the ‘Album link‘ option, the link will expire immediately.
This feature will help users and provide ease of access. By this we can say that the development of One UI is not only to enhance aesthetic features but to also improve the functionalities, it will be exciting to see what new features are in development for future versions.
