Samsung Watch 5 customize side keys

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 series smartwatches come with two keys/buttons – the Home button and the Back button, which you can customize according to your preferences.

One of the handiest features of your watch that you may not know about is the double-press key feature. Both Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 lets you change the Home button’s press and hold and double-press actions, and customize the Back button’s single press action.

But do note that you cannot customize the single press action of the Home button which is set to open the Home screen by default. Twice pressing or holding the back button also cannot be customized. There is no default action nor do you have the option to customize it.

Here’s how you can customize side keys on your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch 5:

How to customize side keys:

On your Galaxy Watch home page, scroll up and down to open the app drawer and open Settings. From here, enter the “Advanced features” section and select the “Customize keys” option.

Now to customize the Home button’s double-press action, tap “Double press” and select any action or app from the list. Once selected, you can press the “Home button” twice to open your selected app or action.

Meanwhile, to customize the “Press and hold action” of the Home button, tap it. Unlike the Double Press action, you cannot use this to select an app or action. By default, this is set to Bixby but you can choose to open the Google Assistant or Power Menu instead.

Lastly, to customize the back button’s single press action, scroll down and select “Short press” under “Back key”. This button is set to go to the previous screen by default, but you can change it to show recent apps.

Samsung Galaxy AI features

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.
