Notably, Samsung Health Stack is an all-in-one open-source project that lets researchers easily build apps for digital health research and development. 

Let us tell you, the Samsung Health Stack includes App SDK, web portal, and backend servers, which helps to make the system construction easy and also allows researchers to focus on their research. About the SDK in particular, it is beneficial to create apps that will be able to support frequent communication between researchers and participants. It will also increase the results of the research and leads to better research outcomes. 

Basically, it is a solution to create a system with which we can perform health research through Android and WearOS Operating Systems. However, Samsung Health Stack is still in Beta; we should wait till June 2023 to get its official 1.0 version. If you want to experience those mobile apps and R&D tools, you just have to use Samsung Health Stack, which is available at the Samsung Electronics exhibition booth. 

Informatively, the Korean firm unveiled an alpha version of Samsung Health Stack last year at the 2022 SDC. Now, in March 2023, they launched a Beta version, and the improved 1.0 version is scheduled to arrive in June 2023, which will improve research introduction, participant onboarding, wearable data collection, and basic survey functions. It sure will help healthcare company that uses wearable devices for research.

Let us tell you everybody can take advantage of the Samsung Health Stack and the SDK or Software Development Kit. Not only that but developers can also customize them as per their choice. The Health Stack will deliver end-to-end support and high security and does everything from data collection to analysis. In that manner, Yunsu Lee, Vice President and Head of the Data Intelligence Team at Samsung Electronics, has stated- 

“By promoting the development of digital health services, we hope to ultimately improve the quality of life for people around the world. We also hope that the Samsung Health Stack, being an open-source project, will be helpful to many people in the field, and we welcome the participation of interested developers and researchers.”

Disney Plus Could Also Offer Always-on Channels Soon Similar To Samsung TV Plus

Published

By


Samsung TV Plus is inspiring the Walt Disney brand as it is now gearing up to offer something on the Disney Plus platform similar to how Samsung TV Plus offers live channels on Galaxy devices. 

Samsung never shies away from providing new convenient features or upgrades to enhance users’ experiences. Here’s the evidence: Samsung TV Plus offers free live channels on Samsung devices. Now Disney Plus is appearing to add always-on channels to its streaming platform. These channels would continuously show content, allowing users to jump in and watch without even having to choose a particular program. 

If the reports are to be believed, the Walt Disney Company is setting up to deliver always-on channels in the Disney Plus application. It is expected that Disney would mainly show Star Wars and Marvel content on these channels; it might also offer Disney’s classic animated movies from Pixar on them. 

However, you are only able to access these always-on channels if you have a paid subscription to the platform. Despite paid service, these channels will also show advertisements, the same as a traditional TV channel on a cable network or a DTH service. This will also offer the option to just start watching content instead of choosing what to watch, searching for it, and then playing the show. 

At the moment, apart from the information mentioned above, there are no other details to come to know regarding exactly when Disney will roll out the new feature. However, it could happen in the next few months. It seems that lately, other streaming platforms, for instance, Amazon and Fox, have also started offering ad-supported channels.
