Simple multitasking with advanced camera functionality
Samsung’s Galaxy Z series devices have revolutionized what can be done with smartphones, offering new levels of productivity and improved solutions when it comes to performing certain tasks. One UI 4.1.1 also brings new features to the device’s camera.
More efficient taskbar
One of the important features of the Galaxy Z Fold series is the ability to change the shape of this device. According to the very special form factor of this phone, Samsung tries to provide the possibility of doing some tasks better when it is open or closed. With the new Galaxy Z Fold 4 taskbar, you can access and switch between the apps you want faster than ever. This update uses a Windows-like layout for running concurrent programs and puts everything you need at your fingertips.
Open multiple windows
With support for Drag & Drop directly from the taskbar, multitasking on the Galaxy Z Fold is easier than ever. Dragging an app to the edge of the screen will open a split view; While dragging it to the center, you will see the application open in the pop-up view. In addition, there are multiple ways to access applications and easily switch between icons.
Sometimes, the best programs come in groups of two or three. If you usually use multiple apps to do some things at the same time, it is possible to create custom groupings based on your needs. In this way, you can group several applications that you always use together, and every time you need them, you can access them all at the same time with just one tap.
Multitasking features are also visually better and easier to interact with thanks to new gestures. Using simple gestures, users can turn full-screen apps into resizable windows or split the screen in half for more ways to manage their tasks.
