Add Lock Screen Contact Information:

Again, open the live preview of your phone’s lock screen through Settings. Tap on the “Contact Infomation” option at the bottom of the screen. Enter the contact information you wish to display on the lock screen in the following pop-up.

You can add a phone number, email address, or others as well as add emojis to the text. For example, I wrote “SammyFans” with two Blue hearts. Once done, tap “Done”.

Lock Screen Shortcuts:

The Phone and Camera app icons that appear on the bottom corners of the lock screen are shortcuts. You can them if as per your preferences. To do so, open the Lock Screen settings and tap on any of the shortcuts.

You can select the app installed on your device as well as go for useful functions like Flashlight, Bixby wakeup, Do not disturb, and more. Do the same with another shortcut. Tap the “Done” option when completed.

Use Good Lock’s LockStar module:

If you are not satisfied with the above-mentioned stock lock screen customization options, install the Good Lock’s LockStar module for further personalization capabilities.

Open the module and enable lock screen customization on the following screen by tapping on the toggle in the top-left. Now tap on the lock screen to open a live preview with the customization features.

Here, you can select the element you want to customize and drag it anywhere on the screen to change its location. If you want, you can remove unwanted elements by tapping the “X” button in the top-right corner of the selection.

However, if you accidentally remove an element, tap the empty area in its previous position to open a pop-up menu including elements you can add to the area.

Change the appearance of the lock icon at the top of the screen, the clock widget, the shortcuts, or the toast by selecting the element and then tapping the icon with four squares in the bottom-left corner of the selection.

There are more Clock faces, the ability to add up to 6 app shortcuts, the ability to add Stickers, and more. After you complete the customization, select the “Save” button in the top-right corner to apply the changes.

There could be many professions but writing about tech is something that I've chosen and it's what I've been doing. Besides this, I like sketching, roaming, and shopping. I am a casual person and like to taste different dishes and Chinese is my favourite.

Samsung’s Android 14 Beta for Galaxy S23 is official in the US



Samsung Galaxy S23 June 2024 update

In addition to South Korea and Germany, Samsung has now launched the Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta in the US. Users of carrier-unlocked or T-Mobile branded Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, or S23 Ultra smartphones can now sign up to get the Beta firmware via OTA.

It’s worth mentioning that the One UI 6 Beta is only available for T-Mobile and carrier-unlocked Galaxy S23 models in the US. This means Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular, and other carrier users have no other option than waiting for the official rollout.

One UI 6 Beta comes with a redesigned Quick Panel, which looks stunning and well-crafted for accessibility. The animations are also tweaked but require further optimization as the current situation of transition effects is not up to the mark.

In a recent Newsroom article, the South Korean tech giant confirmed that the One UI 6 Beta is equipped with more new customization capabilities. The design is simple and eye-catching, which will surely enhance the everyday operations of Galaxy devices.
