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, 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 suggestions and image copy-past. However, it doesn’t offer new Android 11 emojis.

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.

Android 14 QPR1 Beta Introduces Dynamic Floating Search Bar



Google calendar mute notifications

Ahead of the Stable Android 14 release, Google pushed the QPR1 Beta 1 to Pixel devices. The Android 14 QPR1 Beta 1 introduces a Dynamic Floating Search Bar tweaking the current Google button’s placement and functionality across the home and apps screen.

In Android 14 QPR1 Beta 1, the Google Search Bar appears as a floating button when you open your app drawer. As discovered by AndroidAuthority, when you are typing out your query, the Google search bar hovers just above your keyboard.

The new position of the search bar in the app drawer means that you no longer have to reach all the way to the top to initiate a search. Just, tap the floating “G” pill at the bottom of the screen! If you enable the “swipe up to start search” preference you can start typing as soon as you open the app drawer.

At present, the feature is flagged and requires adjustment through the ADB method, which isn’t recommended for end users. For general consumers, Google may revamp how you interact with the Pixel Launcher’s universal search bar with the upcoming release of the December 2023 Pixel Feature Drop.

Android 14 brings smartphone Webcam functionality



Android 14 Webcam support

Google will introduce a new feature that allows users to turn their smartphones into webcams with Android 14. This feature will enable users to plug their Android phones into a PC and switch the USB mode to UVC (USB Video Class), which will make their phones recognizable as standard USB webcams by other devices.

However, this feature is not enabled by default and requires some configuration by the device maker. The device maker needs to enable a Linux kernel config, configure the UVC device, update the USB HAL, and preload a new system app called “Webcam Service”.

Webcam Service is included in the Android 14 QPR1 beta for some Pixel devices. This app depends on a shared library called Both the app and the library will be part of the upcoming source code release of Android 14. The webcam device will appear on the connected host as an “Android Webcam”. It uses the Camera2 API and supports streaming at either 720p (1280×720) or 1080p (1920x1080p) resolutions.

Android 14 is expected to be released with the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. It will also bring several new features and improvements to the Android platform.
