One UI 7.0 (Android 15) Might Bring Vertical App Drawer

Published

on


Samsung’s next iteration is Android 15-based One UI 7.0, and deep down, it should be in the developing phase since Google already rolled out the first beta of Android 15. We expect the One UI 7.0 update to introduce a vertical app drawer. 

Transparently, Samsung updates its One UI skin in the most customizable way, despite lacking a feature named vertical app drawer, which users have been asking for a long time. Finally, it is now expected that Samsung could offer the vertical app drawer along with the One UI 7.0 update. 

If the reports are to be believed, the official in charge of Good Lock’s development unveiled that the forthcoming major update of One UI will bring the vertical option in the app drawer, as they unveiled while answering a user’s question regarding the possibility of getting the vertical app drawer feature back in Good Lock’s Home Up module. 

Samsung’s One UI launcher did not permit the awaited vertical app drawer facility, but it was offered as an option in Good Lock’s Home Up module. Interested parties could effortlessly use that feature to change the app drawer’s alignment as per their preference. However, the features were recently removed, and the reason behind this appears to be that One UI 7.0 is about to bring a vertical app drawer option; Home Up doesn’t need that feature anymore. 

Google has already made Android 15 Beta 1 available to download. A few months after Google I/O 2024, Samsung is expected to open the One UI 7.0 Beta program initially for its high-end Galaxy S24 device and then release it for the rest of the flagship device.

Android 15 Offers Up to 3 Hours More Standby Time

Published

Google has already made Android 15 beta 2 available to download. The giant teased Android enthusiasts by suggesting that Android 15 improves backup battery life for up to 3 hours on specific devices. 

Android 15 is the next major iteration for Android devices. It is quite obvious that it will bring new improvements, upgrades, changes, and new features; for instance, private space and an extra layer of security to enhance the overall experience. Recently, Google at the I/O 2024 event revealed a hidden novelty: at least up to 3 hours longer backup battery life for some smartphones, and the credit goes to faster Doze mode activation. 

At Google I/O, Google executives revealed that Wear OS 5 smartwatches can run marathons with 20% less battery drain as compared to the previous version, Wear OS 4. It is said that this particular improvement comes from several optimizations, including reducing the time the main processor stays awake while writing health data. 

Sameet Samat, President of Android Ecosystem, discussed Wear OS 5 and suggested that this new version optimizes background tasks to improve battery life. It highlights running tasks while the watch is charging instead of while you are wearing it. This scheme quite matches the Doze mode of Android, which automatically schedules background tasks during idle periods when the screen is off. Noticeably, in the forthcoming Android 15 update, the Doze mode appears to be getting more convenient improvements. 

Doze mode will help activate 50% faster, which can lead to up to 3 hours of extra backup battery breath. This mode is expected to benefit all devices that will receive the Android 15 update.

Google Enhances Passkeys Functionality to Gboard on Android 15 to Wear OS 5

Published

Google’s developer conference, I/O 2024, focused dedicatedly on the furtherance of artificial intelligence and brought dozens of other announcements, including Wear OS 5 and Android 15 Beta 2. Google also discussed the future of passwordless login with passkeys, pointing out the possible incorporation into Android as well as Wear OS. 

From Google I/O 2024, it unfolds forthcoming enhancements to passkeys, focusing on a user-friendly as well as instant login experience. From the overall discussion, a strong connection between these advancements and the upcoming release of Android 15 and the new Wear OS update appears. 

Regarding this, the Google Workspace team discussed streamlining the passkey access mechanism, which will go from a sequence of multiple phases, such as account confirmation and authentication through fingerprint, face recognition, or PIN, to a single touch. 

The user experience sees all details on a single, larger screen; in the presence of multiple accounts, there will be a selector to switch from one to the other. The renewed passkey functionality is rolling out with the new versions of Credential Manager on Android 15. 

Google is looking forward to a strong combination of passkeys and reference applications for enhancing a seamless user experience. Android 15, including the improvement of Gboard integration, but here is the catch: it will be available only on devices upgraded to Android 15. While authenticating and clicking on a relevant text entry field, Gboard will automatically suggest login credentials instantly from the Credential Manager, and you apply them to passkeys and also to log in with Google and passwords. For detailed information, you can also check out the dedicated official video here

Being able to hope for a simplified authentication method is all the more beneficial where the display of the device used is particularly small, and now, to keep this point in mind, Google has decided to make Credential Manager available on smartwatches starting with Wear OS 5, opening up quick authentication through Passkey.
