Notifications

Notifications now appear as separate cards, making it easier to recognize individual notifications. More vivid notification icons can be turned on in settings, and notifications can be sorted by time instead of priority. The clock on the lock screen can also be repositioned to the position of your choice.

Home Screen

App icon labels are now limited to a single line for a cleaner and simpler look, and “Galaxy” and “Samsung” have been removed from some app names to make them shorter and easier to scan. Drag and drop with two hands allows you to start dragging app icons or widgets on your Home screen with one hand and then use your other hand to navigate to the screen where you want to drop them.

Keep pop-up windows open instead of minimizing them when you go to the Recents screen. This allows you to keep multiple apps open at once and switch between them easily.

You can access Studio from the Drawer menu in Gallery or add an app icon to your Home screen for quicker access.

The multi-layered structure lets you add clips, stickers, subtitles and other objects and easily adjust their position and length. Save and edit projects to continue editing later.
