Read on to learn more about One UI 4.1 and some of the new features Galaxy users can enjoy.
Collaborate anywhere and connect with Google Duo Live Sharing
Wherever you are in the world, you can stay connected with the Google Duo7 app on your Galaxy device. With Google Duo’s live sharing feature, you can share your screen with friends to view photos in Gallery together and relive your precious memories even when you’re far apart.8 You can also share your browser screen and collaborate on Samsung Notes while you’re on a video call — ideal for planning a trip with your friends or taking productive notes during that important meeting.9
Turn any photo into a masterpiece with Expert RAW
Galaxy S21 Ultra and S22 series10 users who want to get the most out of their smartphone camera can now turn images into magazine-worthy masterpieces with the Expert RAW photo editing app. This DSLR-like experience means you can edit both photos and videos with total precision, satisfying your eye for detail using a comprehensive suite of in-camera editing tools. Plus, the app lets you save files in both JPG and DNG formats, so you can really edit like a pro. Expert RAW gives you complete creative freedom, from lightening or darkening photos with ISO controls, to choosing between multiple lenses to capture any subject or scene.
Take back control of your images with Object Eraser
Sometimes a great photo can be ruined by background objects, people, shadows or reflections, but you may not notice it until after the photo is taken. With the more improved Object Eraser you can now easily remove not only disturbing objects in the background, but also shadows on the subject or even reflections on the windows. Just tap the ‘Clear Shadows’ or ‘Clear Reflections’ button if you want to remove them from a photo, and Object eraser will do the rest.11
Streamline your photo sharing
We know Galaxy users love sharing their content as much as they love creating it. Therefore, the latest update offers users a more simplified and streamlined photo sharing experience. By automatically optimizing your photos—whether by cropping unwanted portions of screenshots or automatically adjusting the tilt—you can ensure that everything you send is exactly what you intended. Simply select an image to share and an icon will alert you if your device detects potential improvements. Click the icon and watch the image automatically resize, rotate, or crop before sharing.
As part of the update, users can also enjoy Quick Share, a feature that lets you instantly send multiple photos, videos, and files at once. Just click the ‘Share’ button and select the desired recipient to transfer everything with ease.
Write confidently with a grammar keyboard
Whether you’re chatting with friends or typing an important email, every word counts. That’s why Samsung teamed up with Grammarly to create a smarter keyboard that goes beyond picking up typos. With Grammarly seamlessly integrated into Samsung Keyboard, you’ll automatically receive expert writing enhancements as you type to make sure you feel confident every time you hit send. You’ll also get the chance to get more advanced suggestions — like ideas to improve sentence clarity, find compelling synonyms, write fluency, and more — to take your writing to the next level.12
