Samsung begins its One UI 3.0 beta program and now the company has finally begun to roll out the first public beta for the Galaxy S20 series users. We’ve got our first look at the new features offered by the One UI 3.0.
HERE’S EVERYTHING NEW IN SAMSUNG ONE UI 3.0:
Samsung has changed the color scheme of the quick settings panel and used a Gaussian-like blur effect on the background of the toggle buttons.
Secondly, the volume adjustment panel now acts vertically rather than a horizontal list of the volume sliders. There are currently, no changes found in the homescreen, lock screen, and the recent apps section.
Stock Android 11 features include one-time permissions, device controls, quick access wallet, media controls in the quick settings, or Conversations in notifications and Samsung has tried to implement most of these features in One UI 3.0. However, since some of the features including the device control are not part of One UI 3.0 because Samsung already has its own device control center.
Additionally, there are some features from the miscellaneous section including the new minimal battery use mode, which applies a dark theme, a minimal home screen, and limits apps for maximum power saving. Also, it has a new enhanced processing mode that boosts performance and more.
Bixby routines getting a new upgrade that allows you to set a custom icon for each routine, what actions are reversed when a routine ends, toggle various accessibility features, trigger Bixby, use new conditions, and more. There are also some Digital Wellbeing improvements.
Furthermore, the One UI 3.0 beta also brought users a new look at its stock Samsung apps. Now, you can revert any edits you make, Samsung messages now adds a new bin to store deleted messages, and the Contact app helps you quickly delete similar contacts and even more.
Samsung Internet is also getting some new changes, that include the ability to lock/reorder tabs, block pages from hijacking the back button, warnings about malicious sites, hiding the status bar when scrolling, and more.
One UI launcher now has new changes in the context menu section with an option to place a related widget by long-pressing an app icon. There’s also a new feature called “double tap to sleep” that lets you turn off your display by double-tapping on the display’s empty area.
Samsung keyboard now supports inline autofill suggestion and image copy-past. However, it doesn’t offer a new Android 11 emoji’s.
These are some of the key new changes made into the One UI 3.0 but since it is a beta build, it’s possible that Samsung may add additional features before One UI 3.0 goes to the public.
