Samsung recently revealed its latest software update, One UI 6.1, alongside the launch of the highly anticipated Galaxy S24 series. The update brings a lot of enhancements, focusing on artificial intelligence, camera capabilities, customization options, and productivity features. Notably, it also emphasizes improved integration with other products within the Galaxy ecosystem.
One standout feature in One UI 6.1 is the innovative Camera Sharing function, which allows users to utilize their Galaxy smartphone’s camera as a webcam for a Galaxy tablet. To access this feature, users can navigate to Settings > Connected Devices on their Galaxy S24. Once the Camera Sharing toggle is activated, the smartphone’s camera becomes available for use as a webcam on a nearby Galaxy tablet.
For the Camera Sharing feature to function seamlessly, both the Galaxy smartphone and tablet must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network, with Bluetooth and Camera Sharing features enabled. This novel feature opens up new possibilities for users engaged in video calls or meetings, offering the advantage of using the higher-quality camera typically found on smartphones. These cameras often provide superior dynamic range, increased detail, and more accurate colors compared to the front-facing cameras commonly found on tablets.
It’s important to note that the Camera Sharing feature differs from the existing ability to use a Galaxy smartphone’s camera as a webcam for a PC or laptop running Windows OS. The latter functionality is made possible through the Link To Windows integration provided by Microsoft.
Google and Samsung Secure Exclusive Long-Term Deal for Circle to Search Feature
With the new Samsung Galaxy S24 Series, i.e. Samsung Galaxy S24, Samsung Galaxy S24+, and Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung has introduced its new Galaxy AI which has many AI features. One among them was Circle to Search which was created in partnership with Google. The same feature was also introduced by Google for its Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro a day later.
How Circle to Search is different from the ordinary Search?
As we know, if you want to search for something in the Google lens. Then, you have to choose the photo from the gallery and select the object from the photo. But with this Circle to Search, you just have to circle the object from the photo that you want to search.
If you want to know more about the Samsung Galaxy S24 Series and its new Galaxy AI, then we already have a dedicated post for that.
Note: Some of the Galaxy AI features will also come in the first half of 2024, i.e. January to June, in the Samsung devices listed below:
- Samsung Galaxy S23
- Samsung Galaxy S23+
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy S23 FE (Fan Edition)
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
Can we expect Circle to Search feature on other Smartphone devices?
Sadly, according to a statement by Samsung Netherlands, it is clear that the Circle to Search feature will be exclusive to Samsung and Google devices until October 2024.
Circle to Search may become available on Android devices from other brands from 5 October 2024, but there are no active developments underway for this.
Google and Samsung think that these exclusive features can attract people to prefer their devices, but it can hurt users as well as other Android manufacturers. Eventually, this is not the first time, Samsung and Google have given the latest version of WearOS on their wearables.
Because of this, users as well as other smartphone manufacturers are upset with both Samsung and Google. It is like Apple’s ecosystem, which was previously opened, but now, it is more closed with these exclusive features for exclusive devices. What Samsung and Google are thinking, is just because of these exclusive features, users will consider a Pixel or a Samsung Phone.
