1. Optimization of internal memory folder display – ‘ Required ‘ filter provided

Samsung My Files developers noticed that there are folders that the user has never used directly at the top of the internal memory, which makes the folder list look complicated and it can be inconvenient to find the folders you use at a glance.

Required is a filter function that shows only some of the many folders in the internal memory Root (top location).

The area shown through Required is physically the same as the top-level path of the internal memory and shows only the lower folders among the folders in that location.

  1. DCIM, Download, Music, Pictures: always displayed
  2. Alarms, Audiobooks, Documents, Movies, Notifications, Podcasts, Ringtones, Recording: Display when not empty folder
  3. Folders created/renamed/copied/moved by the user in the version of My Files app with a mandatory filter applied: always displayed

When the ‘Required’ filter is applied, Alarms, Audiobooks, Documents, Movies, Notifications, Podcasts, Ringtones, Recording folders do not show if the inside is empty.

2. Application of navigation rail to large-screen model

The Navigation Rail is applied as a function specialized for large-screen models (eg Galaxy Fold, tablet models). The Navigation Rail and Standard Drawer are switched each time you press the upper left More menu.

3. Run a file in multiple windows

The ability to run the file viewer in multiple windows is added.

Simply press and hold the file you want to run and select Open in New Window or Open in Another Window from the menu that appears.

  3. Result Screen
    1. As above, the target file is launched in a window other than the one in which the My Files app was launched.

4. Support for ‘ Favorites ‘ backup restore (Backup & Restore)

Now, backup/restore of the items you set as your favorites is supported through Smart Switch, so you can keep the list of favorites from your old device even on a new device.

5. Allow copying and moving files within the same category

In the meantime, there was an inconvenience of having to copy/move files selected from categories by moving them to the physical space menu such as internal memory or SD card.

Additional improvement

Copying and moving to categories is now possible only within the same category (eg, image category A folder -> image category B folder).

However, copying/moving between different categories or from a physical area such as internal memory to a category is not supported.

Lastly, we will keep you updated on this matter and inform our readers about the new My Files update whenever it makes its way to the public.

Latest WhatsApp Android Beta introduces new shortcut for stickers forwarding!

Published

WhatsApp Message Reactions

On June 23, Whatsapp introduced a new way to forward official stickers packs to your contact and groups. In the recent development, WhatsApp has released another beta update for Android users with version number 2.21.24.11. This new update brings a shortcut to quickly forward a sticker in Whatsapp.

Here a question arises that why WhatsApp is introducing this shortcut? Why was it needed? As WhatsApp already allows users to forward messages and sticker to any contact and group. But, the problem with this is that when you forward a sticker, the first thing you have to do is save the stickers. Otherwise, you cannot forward it.

But now with (via- WABetaInfo) this new feature, you can send stickers to any contact without saving them. Also, a good thing is that you will not see the option of a ‘Forward the sticker’ message.
