Once again, Galaxy smartphone users are required to wait for an unspecified time for the multi-user feature. It’s worth mentioning that Samsung tablets already offer the multi-user feature, which was initially debuted on Pixel phones nearly a decade ago.

Important changes

Talking about bug fixes, the Galaxy S22’s One UI 5.0 Beta 4 improves the Gallery app so you can add or remove favorites and recent items in the Album. Moreover, it solves the issue of the automatic launch of random functions in some cases along with the virtual vibration/beep issue that occurs continuously.

Users reported having crashing issues while accessing the app folder and wallpapers interface, which is now being fixed with the fourth One UI 5.0 Beta update. The 3rd Beta brought a whole new Wallpapers section, but it was not accessible due to continuous crashing problems.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra users were facing issues in using the S Pen Air Command feature occasionally, which are now being improved to offer the best possible user experiences. Object Eraser, Shadow Eraser and Reflection Eraser apps stopped working with the 3rd Beta installation, which will now be becoming accessible again.
