Samsung Unintentionally Made Secure Folder App Unremovable

Published

on


Samsung has already started rolling out the Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update. Initially, the Galaxy S24 series came out of the box on One UI 6.1, then the 2023 Galaxy flagship received the update, and now 2022 Galaxy high-end devices are in the line. Now Samsung has confirmed that you can’t delete Secure Folder after One UI 6.1. 

Samsung Secure Folder is a private, encrypted space available on Galaxy devices that stores images, videos, files, apps, and data, but despite this, it can’t get enough appreciation, and it is one of the most underrated features on Galaxy devices. 

Now, after installing the latest One UI 6.1 update, it seems that some of the users can’t delete the Secure Folder application. This is being acknowledged by a Samsung representative who confirmed this issue on the Korean Community forum. The inability to delete Secure Folder was related to a “Google security policy” that was applied to One UI 6.1. 

The issue only affects the Secure Folder app, which is running on 1.9.10.27. Apart from this, Samsung has also confirmed that this issue affected the devices that are running on One UI 6.1, including the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and the Galaxy Tab S9 series. 

The giant noted that it plans to update the Secure Folder through the Galaxy Store so users will have the power to delete it again as per their preference. Although this issue isn’t a major one, Samsung will soon fix it. At the time, the brand has not revealed the exact timeline for the update, but it is expected to arrive in the coming week.

Circle to Search is no longer exclusive to Samsung and Pixel devices

Published

on


We are in the tech era where nothing lasts limited, and Android’s exclusive Circle to Search feature is a hot topic in the tech market after being a couple of months older than how it cannot be available on iOS. The reportedly new Circle to Search feature could come to Chrome on iOS. 

Samsung is the one who brought Circle to Search into existence, initially introduced on its recently launched Galaxy S24series, but the backbone of the feature is Google since this feature uses Google’s algorithm to run. It later came to the Pixel smartphones and tablets. 

Circle to Search Expands Reach: Feature Spotted in Chrome for iOS

At the I/O 2024 event, Google promised to expand the Circle to Search feature’s reach to 200 million devices by the end of 2024. Probably, this could include the iPhone as well. 

This probability is being speculated by the reports from Mac Observer, who spotted something interesting hiding in Chrome for iOS. As per his analysis, a new “Lens Circle to Search” flag appears that was silently added to the app, and once the flag is enabled, the Circle to Search feature will be available within Google Lens on iOS. 

If this analysis comes true, then iPhone users could get the power to start circling and searching to their hearts’s content. However, it is quite obvious that there will be little difference in the way of functionality or appearance as compared to the system-wide integration Circle to Search has on Android. 

As a result, the feature appears to be limited to being used on Chrome for iOS. At the moment, it is not clear whether this feature would only be limited to the iPhone or if it could also make its way to the iPad. Google is also yet to officially confirm its plans to roll out the Cirlce to Search feature for iOS.

Android Auto 12 stable update available for everyone

Published

on

By


Last week, Google introduced the beta update for Android Auto with v12. Now, after testing for a week, the search giant has started rolling out the stable version for Android Auto Stable version 12, compatible with cars.

For starters, Android Auto is an infotainment system that offers a whole bunch of functionality that you usually use on smartphones, but to provide convenience to car drivers, Google has introduced Android Auto, which offers almost all the features of smartphones accessible directly from the car display. For instance, users can easily find information on the internet, access different video or music streaming apps, etc.

Being a Google product is not yet successful in providing seamless services as compared to other devices; however, with the new Android Auto 12 stable update, the company is trying its best to make Android Auto an important part of cars. To do that, the company frequently brings new updates to the application.

With the continuous upgrade, now Android Auto has reached the twelfth edition in a very short time; however, with the latest major update, the company hasn’t brought any changelog, so there are currently no details on whether any changes happened to the application or not.

Based on the recent announcement, it is possible that the company may start preparing for the new changes that will reshape Android Auto compatibility for new applications. The company has also decided to introduce new guidelines for the developers, so it is possible that I may initiate the platform to make it more compatible for better access to new applications. To take advantage of new updates, you can install the latest update from the Google Play Store.
