Earlier, the One UI 5.0 Beta testers of the Galaxy S22 series received the new Bixby Text Call feature in South Korea without English language support. As the feature’s availability is limited to Samsung’s home ground, only the Korean language is supported for now, and users are eagerly waiting for English support.

The One UI 5.0’s new Bixby Text Call feature lets Galaxy users communicate in the manner that is most convenient to them. Using it, you can answer phone calls simply by typing a message, thanks to Samsung for the conscious use of artificial intelligence.
As the name of this new feature includes Samsung’s intelligent platform Bixby, the new Text Call feature is totally based on it. The Bixby converts the text to audio and shares it directly with the caller on the line on your behalf. Moreover, it shows you what the caller is saying by converting their voice to text.

Samsung Galaxy tablets getting new Google Drive design with navigation rail
Google has started rolling out a new update for the Drive app via the Play Store. The latest update of Google Drive brings a number of upgrades to well optimize the app for Android tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy tablets.
The company revamped the Google Drive app to take advantage of the larger screen, giving Android tablet users a next-level experience. It has also optimized the visual components to make it easier for users to navigate the app.
According to the official information of Workspace, the company has shifted the navigation bar of Google Drive to the side. Earlier the navigation bar was at the bottom, now it has been changed to a side-mounted rail which is on the left.
The company has now mentioned the navigation bar options Home, Starred, Share, and Files with their names as well as added the Plus option on this rail top. This means that you can now see all these options in the side-mounted navigation bar.
The top search bar no longer uses the full width of the screen, as it has been reduced to a limited oval-shaped area. Right next to this search bar in the right corner, you can see Help, Settings, and Profile options.
The company has also customized the Suggested and Notification sections, now you can see both options in the left corner below the search bar. Samsung Galaxy tablet users can enjoy the well-optimized interface of Google Drive
It is worth mentioning that the update is currently rolling out for those workspace accounts that enrolled for Rapid Release while the company will make it widely available from April 3, 2023.
Samsung One UI 6.0 might add another eye-saving screen feature
Google is reportedly testing a new Android feature, which might auto-adjust screen brightness even if the device is locked. This new eye-saving screen feature will be quite useful in a dark room or nighttime conditions and we believe, Samsung will bring it with One UI 6.0.
Samsung One UI 6.0 to bring new eye-saving screen feature
As spotted by Mishaal Rahman, Google appears to be working on using the “brightness sensor to determine the screen’s initial brightness.” The new function is likely to help your Android device to take the ambient light into account to ensure the screen is not too bright in a dark room or low-light environment.
The company has recently released the Android 13 QPR2’s source code, which includes various code changes, as part of the preparation for upcoming features to the OS. The auto-screen brightness feature will ensure that your phone’s screen brightness doesn’t harm your eyes when you move to a dark environment from a bright one.
As of now, it’s unclear whether Google will make it official with the next Pixel Feature Drop in June or keep it reserved for the next version of Android, likely to release in August this year. Anyway, we have to wait until later this year to see if Samsung brings it to the One UI 6.0 software.

Samsung Galaxy devices already have the Eye comfort shield feature, which reduces the impact of screen brightness on your eyes. This function was added with One UI 4, and further refined with the new One UI 5 software. However, the device makes you uncomfortable when you trigger an initial screen unlock.
Over the past few years, the Android operating system greatly improved the auto-brightness functionality. Samsung has also made additional improvements in One UI so your Galaxy device won’t make any kind of impact on your eyes. However, these kinds of further upgrades are most welcomed.
