Samsung Gallery App gets several improvements with One UI 5.1

Published

on


The long-awaited Galaxy S23 series has been launched, and the users’ wait is now over. It shows improvements in its hardware and software both and has brought a lot new to offer. Today we will focus on this series’s Gallery only because the Gallery itself has got plenty of new features for the users. These new features will surely provide an even better experience to the user as compared to the last flagship. So, let’s take a look at it. 

What’s new about the Galaxy S23’s Gallery App 

Let us inform you that the recently-launched flagship- the Galaxy S23 series, has got enhancements in a total of five major factors, which are listed below. If you are determined to know about them, read this article till the end. 

Gallery’s photo remaster function is now improved. 

For those who are unaware, the photo remaster function is basically used to improve or resolve the problems that appear with the image’s quality. The remaster function uses AI quality estimation technology. The function can be recommended via Gallery’s recommended menu. Samsung, in particular, added a total of three new features to this function, which are listed below. 

  • GIF Improvements
  • Clear shadow and light reflections 
  • Wide angle distortion correction 

Nota bene, the photo remaster function is currently available to the Galaxy S23 devices’ Gallery only, but the company is planning to provide it for the Galaxy S22 series devices also (with One UI 5.1 or higher version). 

The Story function will now be more personalized 

As we all know, the Galaxy’s Gallery has an attractive story function, which shows memories, favourites, slideshows, and more. With the Galaxy S23 series, this Story function is now improved. Notably, the company has now added a view mode in the view multiple stories option, which helps you focus on a particular story by performing the zoom-out action on it, and for returning to multiple stories, just pinch the zoom-in.

Other than this, on top of the story tab, you can see memories of today, such as one year ago, and the best moments. The other feature is the favourite stories feature, in which you can quickly add your desired stories to favourites, which you see often. Besides, now it offers slideshows as well. Instead of images, now you can watch a slideshow, with filter and BGM, which can also be saved and shared as a video.

Search will be easier 

As we all know, the Galaxy device’s Gallery lets you search for your desired content by entering keywords, but the Galaxy S23’s Gallery lets you enter multiple keywords at the same time, for even more accurate results. Now you can also search the images by choosing one or more person’s faces, and the device will show you all the images, in which the selected face/faces are visible. 

Content details are now a click away 

Previously, to reach the details of the image, we needed to swipe up or go to the details menu, but now with Galaxy S23, both of them are integrated into one. Now, the camera shooting mode and resolution information is also added along with the content details. The other interesting thing is now you can just swipe left or right on the content detail screen so that you can reach the next images while seeing the details. 

Image Clipper function is added 

With the Galaxy S23 series, the previous Galaxy devices’ Lasso function is improved, which helps to cut out objects from any image. Now with the Galaxy S23’s Gallery, the company has added an even easier function, with which you can easily cut any object from the Gallery or Video Player’s screen by performing some simple actions. All you have to do is enter the ‘View One’ screen and press and hold the desired object to cut. 

By performing the above-mentioned actions, the object will be cut out automatically, and you can copy the clipped object on the clipboard or even share it and save it as an image. The same method will be applicable to the videos as well.

Samsung’s Copilot+ PCs with Qualcomm Chips Won’t Support Several Apps including ‘Fortnite’

Published

on

By


Samsung released Copilot+ PCs in its home country, South Korea, that use Qualcomm processors. These PCs are beneficial for AI tasks, but the giant has also claimed that several common applications won’t run on them. 

Microsoft introduced the term “Copilot+ PC” for powerful laptops with built-in AI features. These laptops are powered by Snapdragon X Elite chipsets with a special chip (NPU) for running AI tasks super fast at 45 trillion operations per second (TOPS).

Most of the PCs use the X86 architecture, and machines built around Arm raise the prospect of old software being orphaned, which would hardly encourage buyers. Microsoft, however, created an emulation layer named Prism that it claims will make “your apps run great, whether native or emulated” on Copilot+ PCs.

Samsung warns that several security applications like Adobe Illustrator and Google Drive won’t run on its GalaxyBook Edge 4 Copilot+ PCs via a compatibility notice. Games including Fortnite, League of Legends, and Microsoft’s flagship shooter Halo Infinite are also not satisfied under Windows 11 for Arm and Snapdragon silicon, reportedly. 

Websites for some South Korean financial services providers are also incompatible with the machines. It is also mentioned in the compatibility notice that particular printers may not work with the machines without new software. The Register has checked Samsung sites outside South Korea and was unable to find similar compatibility notices. However, it seems that this could be regarded as an old antitrust case where Microsoft had to offer a different version of Windows in South Korea.

Samsung Galaxy Devices to Receive Circle to Search Audio Upgrade

Published

By


Samsung introduced an AI-powered handy tool called Circle to Search with Google on the Galaxy S24 series. Now, with the latest update, this convenient feature will get a new audio upgrade. 

Samsung Galaxy users, if you have Circle to Search on your devices, then get ready for the new upgrade, since soon this feature will become more intuitive with potential audio search capabilities on the horizon. At the moment, this feature is only capable of searching for any image or text on the display. With the latest update, it will have the new capability of audio searching. 

Google’s Assistant and Gemini also offer similar functions, such as identifying songs or language translations, making Google services even more versatile. While Circle to Search is quite similar to Lens or reverse image search in a browser, the feature is expected to adopt multimodal input similar to Gemini and assist with audio input as well. 

A tipster on @AssembleDebug shared a post on X that pointed out a new audio input button appearing beside the search button in beta version 15.24.28.29 of the app. However, the button doesn’t appear by default, but the researcher found a way to activate an audio search function in the Cirlce to Search feature. At the moment, it is not clear yet exactly what the button will do when pressed. But it seems that the hidden audio search button might permit multimodal input (Circle to Search). This means you could combine voice and on-screen interaction for a more precise search, similar to what’s already possible with Lens.

This could also facilitate a voice search, like Assistant, to let you find the songs playing in your vicinity or perform a simple voice search. It will be interesting to see exactly how this new novelty will function.

WhatsApp Update Ends Low-Resolution Media Sharing

Published

on

By


Meta-owned WhatsApp is finally taking steps to upgrade image and video quality for shared files by releasing a new update. With this latest update, there will be no more sacrificing resolution for speed. 

WhatsApp is dedicated to releasing an update that improves the resolution of shared files without even resorting to further steps. It is looking forward to improving the file-sharing process. Previously, it boosted the maximum file size to 2 GB per file, and last year, WhatsApp introduced the option to share images and videos in “HD.” 

A couple of months ago, it introduced the option to share high-quality images and videos in “HD” to avoid losing the quality of the content. While this doesn’t mean completely uncompressed files, it was a beneficial way to enhance quality sharing. A recent beta version of the app with version number 2.24.13.10 introduced the ability to turn media quality on and off. This function already exists on several devices. 

Now you can check this by just following the steps mentioned here: Open the app and go to Settings >> Storage & Data >> Media Upload Quality. 

After taking these steps, a window appears that permits you to select the quality of the photos and videos to send in the chats. You will be able to choose between Standard Quality, which will allow you to send faster and smaller files, and HD Quality, which will be slower to send and can be six times larger. WhatsApp will offer this new functionality in the beta version before a wider release, and it might also extend HD sharing to status updates in the future.
