Samsung’s Android 13-based One UI 5 Beta 1 is live for the Galaxy S22 users in select regions. The new custom OS brings multiple new features and countless changes over the One UI 4.1. We are continuously exploring the One UI 5 beta elements, the latest is the Per-app language feature.
Multilingual people might understand the sentiment of setting the whole system language to one language when you want to select other languages for specific apps. Your Samsung smartphone supports various languages for so long. Still, you can only set a single language for the system.
Meanwhile, Samsung has changed this with the One UI 5, which introduces the Per-app language feature. Primarily a feature of Android 13, the per-app language allows users to select a different language preference for each app.
The company has developed this feature, especially for multilinguals, who prefer to use different languages depending on the situation and change the way they communicate from one instance to another.
For example, you might like to use a social media app in English while news provider, banking, and other applications in your mother language or the area you belong to. This can also be really helpful for older people who don’t understand English as good as they can operate the whole phone with it.
Whereas, the Per-app language makes it possible to drive applications under the same set of locations on Android settings. It allows applications to change locale preferences at runtime using the newly introduced API.
However, it should be noted that the availability of this feature may vary depending on the apps. It could be possible that some third-party apps do not support this feature and these apps may work best in English or another language. Currently, we are not sure which apps support it or which don’t.
If you are one of the Galaxy S22 series users running on One UI 5 beta, you can access this feature through the specific app info or settings. Also, you can search for it on your phone’s settings.
Check Samsung Galaxy A52 smartphone with One UI 5.0 (Android 13) user interface
Back in 2021, Samsung introduced the Galaxy A52 with Android 11-based One UI 3.1 software. Later last year, the device was upgraded to the One UI 4.1 based on Android 12. Well now, it’s time to have a look at what your Samsung Galaxy A52 will look like with Android 13 interface, thanks to One UI 5.0 Beta.
Yesterday, Samsung started Android 13 Beta program for the Galaxy A52 users in India, which lets them experience the interface of One UI 5.0 ahead of Public release. And there’s no doubt, the new software iteration created by Samsung is wonderful, and takes the user experience to a whole new level. Let’s explore.
With the Galaxy S22 series’ third One UI 5.0 Beta, Samsung debuted a customizable lockscreen that can be tweaked directly from the lockscreen interface. The Galaxy A52 device has also received the same capability with its first One UI 5.0 Beta update that lets users play with lockscreen modification tools.
Home and apps screen:
While there are major enhancements in the customization capabilities of the lockscreen, there’s nothing notable in the One UI 5.0 for the Home screen part. The company has reimagined the icons of several stock apps along with gradient colors.
Note: You can add the Unlock and 60Hz profile through Bixby Routines, as shown in the screenshot.
Apps screen, on the other hand, remains the same as the One UI 4.1 with paginated form factor, which users demand vertical scroll app drawer with One UI 5.0. The App drawer has not added new features or functionalities, however, you can now find apps even more easily with suggestions as per your usage.
Notification panel and Quick settings:
Compared to the One UI 4.1, the new One UI 5.0 software brings significant improvements to the Notification panel interface in order to increase visibility. The Notification expansion buttons got less transparent background shapes to provide you with a clear view at all toggles, however, the layout remains the same.
Talking about the Quick Settings, there are not any upgrades over the One UI 4.1 in the overall feel. The background now looks less transparent, thanks to the company’s decision to replace the previous interface with a solid color in both light and dark modes.
Volume slider interface:
Volume adjustment panel is one of the most used functions of smartphones that allows you to adjust volume of different aspects such as ringtone, media, alarms, timers and so on. The One UI 5.0’s volume panel adopts better Material You design language and revamps itself as the wallpaper’s color and Color Palette.
So today, we explored key aspects of the One UI 5.0 user interface offerings for the Galaxy A52 smartphone users. The Stable update is expected to start rolling out later this year, while the company will continue to enhance the software and consumers’ experiences with further updates.
