Our smartphone contains a variety of applications that we use for different purposes. But not all apps are made to be visible to everyone who uses our phones. Therefore, in order to have some privacy, we hide those applications.

No matter if you have some pictures on your phone’s Gallery that you want to hide from your family, apps that aren’t child-friendly enough for your kids, dating apps that you can’t show, or have some private documents that contain sensitive personal information, you can hide every kind of application that your Samsung smartphone has.

Not only the applications that you install on your phone, but you can also hide the pre-installed apps so that you can easily find other important apps. These hidden applications will not even be visible in the search results, so now you can give your phone to anyone without any stress.

However, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t any way to find those hidden applications. Your PlayStore history or app data folders can make these applications visible. If you want, you can hide these applications too.

Well, hiding phone apps isn’t a new feature of Samsung smartphones, people are using it for ages. But if you are new to Samsung or One UI 4.1, and need some input on how to use this on your phone, head over to the summarized steps mentioned below.

One of the most innovative features that Google introduced at the Galaxy Unpacked event is Circle to Search. This feature is currently available on the Samsung Galaxy S24 and Google Pixel 8 series, which enhances the smartphone’s functionality and performance.

Circle to Search enables users to search their screen by drawing a circle over the text or image that they want to search. It can be activated by long-pressing on the home button or navigation bar and then using a finger to draw a circle around the desired content. A search bar will appear at the bottom of the screen, displaying relevant results from Google.

However, some content may be too small or hidden by the search bar. In such cases, Circle to Search offers some solutions.

  • Users can move the search bar to the top of the screen by dragging it with one finger.
  • Users can also zoom in or out on the screen by using a two-finger pinch gesture.

These features are not widely announced, but they are very useful for selecting content that is difficult to see or reach.

Circle to Search is a useful feature that allows users to search their screen without leaving the current app. It can be used to look up words, definitions, translations, images, videos, news, and more. It also allows users to copy or share the selected content with a simple tap.
