Samsung is pushing back-to-back updates for its stock apps. The ultimate aim of these updates is to make the Galaxy device more compatible with the latest features, which are coming with the One UI 6 skin. Moving forward, the company has rolled out a new update for Wonderland and added some new features.

Samsung adds AOD transition support for Wonderland to its latest foldables

Samsung has rolled out a new update for Wonderland, which comes with version 1.4.05, and with the new update, it has brought several new features, such as the AOD transition, which now supports the latest foldables, including the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. With the new update, it also removes unnecessary effects when setting dynamic animation options for original Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip devices.

Apart from these, the new update also changes the location of the image settings button and the effect selection button. Several users are facing the issue where the setting resets even if the button is not pressed on the image setting screen. So with all these new changes, users will get an all-new experience for the Wonderland application.

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

Published

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.
