Samsung has rolled out a new update for the Samsung Internet 19.0 beta update via Galaxy Store and Play Store. The latest update comes with new powerful features that enhance the browsing experience by protecting users from online threats from trackers.
Samsung Internet 19 Beta
Samsung Internet Beta version 19 brings a bunch of improvements related to privacy, private browsing, smart anti-tracking, and more. Through this beta update, you can enjoy the feature of the upcoming stable build of Samsung Internet.
Improved Smart Anti-Tracking
With Samsung Internet Browser 17 Beta, the company released an AI-powered Smart Anti-tracking feature. After that, the company improved this functionality with Beta 18.0. Now, the company is enhancing the Smart Anti-tracking feature more by letting it detect domains that collude with classified trackers and immediately apply for protection.
Enhanced Phishing Detection
The improved look-alike phishing detection is designed to warn users not to reveal personal information to malicious actors when they inadvertently navigate to a site they think is a trusted site but a fraudulent site with a similar URL.
New Privacy Info Feature
Now, users easily check their tracking protection with a new privacy Info feature. By clicking on the lock icon in the address bar, users can verify how secure their connection to a website is. You can get the information on how many trackers are blocked, check and delete cookies and allow for location, camera and microphone immediately.
Samsung Internet navigation became easier in version 18.0, which introduced text extraction from web images and a bottom toolbar for the first time in the Galaxy Z Fold series. Now, Samsung Internet 19.0 Beta is making web browsing more comfortable.
The new beta allows for add-on work in Secret Mode, so users don’t have to select between privacy and customized experiences. You can easily turn on and off these features from the Add-ons menu.
Users of Samsung Internet can sync users’ bookmarks between PC PC Chrome browser and Samsung Internet mobile browsers by using Samsung Internet’s Chrome Extension. After testing the beta build, Samsung will release Internet 19.0 stable in 4Q 2022.
YouTube Music’s comments: A low-key but powerful social media tool for music fans
YouTube Music offers a feature that allows music lovers to interact with each other through comments. Users can comment on any song, video, or podcast that they are listening to and join the conversation with other users who have similar tastes. Users can also explore user-generated playlists from the community and see their top listens.
Google could improve this YouTube Music feature by adding the option to comment on albums and playlists, and by letting users follow other users and see their comments in a feed. This would make YouTube Music a unique place to connect with music and people.
The UI was redesigned a few weeks ago to make key actions more accessible. Now, users can swipe up a panel of comments from the main YouTube app with just one tap on Android and iOS devices.
YouTube Music is not just a streaming service, but also a social network for music enthusiasts. It provides a platform for users to express themselves and engage with others through music. It also helps users discover new music and expand their musical horizons. YouTube Music is a place where music and people come together.

Google Calendar for Android adds ‘ Today’ button on all screens
Google Calendar app allows users to organize their schedules as it offers various views to display events and tasks, such as day, week, or month. However, users may sometimes need to check the current date while browsing the calendar but the existing option to return to the current date’s view may disrupt the user’s navigation.
For that, Google is introducing a minor improvement to the Calendar app which is the “Today” button. It will display the current date on every screen. The date will appear between the search icon and the account switcher. It will resemble the application’s icon on Android 13+. This way, you can see the date without leaving the screen you are on.
At the moment, this change is only for phones, not tablets. Tablets will still show “Today” for the button. You need version 2023.36.1.x of Google Calendar for Android to see this change. If you don’t see it, you can restart the app.
