Last month Samsung released the new version of its native internet browser called Samsung Internet 14.0 Beta. With this version, the company introduced modern and innovative features such as improved privacy, revamped viewing experience for foldables, better multitasking, customization with your favorite fonts, and more.

At the same time, the Korean tech giant announced that it will launch the stable version of Samsung Internet 14.0 in April 2021. Now, as per the latest information, Samsung started rolling out the stable 14.0 version of the Internet, which is available to easily download through Google Play Store and Galaxy Store for beta testers as well as normal users.

The latest Samsung Internet comes with version number: 14.0.1.62. And the changelog shows that this release brings three new features including Security Control Panel, support for font application on web pages, and an enhanced Smart Anti Tracking feature (a.k.a. Smart Anti Tracking 3.0).

The new Security Control Panel designed to make it easier for you to monitor and control your privacy settings and view useful daily stats, such as how many pop-ups and trackers have been blocked.

On the other hand, you can customize your online browsing experience by applying your favorite font 3 or a font that is easier to read. To use this feature, just enter “Lab” in the “Samsung Internet Settings” menu to make the font on the website match the font you use on your phone.

Aside from this, the enhanced Smart Anti Tracking function forces Samsung Internet 14.0 to keep users protected by detecting when a website is trying to track you and automatically stops them. Still, confused? Check out the official changelog below.

You will soon be able to securely share files across Android and iOS devices using WhatsApp. The latest WhatsApp Beta for iOS brings evidence of signaling the addition of file-sharing capability.

WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is crafting an offline file-sharing tool for Android and iOS. The feature is slated to allow users to share encrypted files with others nearby by scanning the QR Code.

Notably, the existence of this feature was first spotted for the Android app in April this year. The inclusion of this tool in the iOS app indicates that WhatsApp has progressed in development.

WhatsApp Nearby Sharing

WhatsApp for iOS could require the recipient to scan a QR code to trigger the file transfer. The previous finding for the Android app revealed that file sharing would be possible with any nearby WhatsApp user.

While WhatsApp for Android appeared months ago, the iOS-inspired sharing method might be deployed across platforms. The QR scanning functionality is comparatively more secure and the option to share with any nearby device.

Android phones have Quick Share and iOS-powered iPhones have AirDrop. WhatsApp explored beyond as part of simplifying the file-sharing experience across platforms. The approach would significantly uplevel the overall user experience.
