You can open applications, change their layout, move between them, or assign them to split-screen multitasking with the Hidden pop-up feature coming to Z Fold4, Z Flip5, and Tab S8 devices. You may then choose to conceal them when you're done.

By just holding down the pop-up window's handle, users may go from pop-up applications to two apps on the screen using the pop-up view to the multi-window feature.

You may pick several files with two hands and then drag & drop them to other programs on the taskbar for editing or sending. Tablets and the foldable Galaxy will both have this functionality.

The Watch5 and Watch4 lines of the Galaxy Watch are receiving sleep insights, which deliver a thorough summary of your sleep score replete with stats on sleep phases and aggregate sleep score.

With earlier smartphones, more watch face selections and a camera controller functionality that functions as a remote shutter on compatible Galaxy phones are also available to Galaxy Watch customers.
