So you decided to buy the Samsung Galaxy S10 but sort of like some of the features on the new Note10. Maybe you’re thinking of offloading that Samsung Galaxy S10 and switching over to the Note10 for some of these features. Well, you may not have to take such a drastic measure which could save you a nice chunk of change. Read our review here.
That’s because Samsung is updating the S10 with some of the features the brand new Note10 has. These updates will roll out to the S10, S10+, S10e, and S10 5G starting this week. The update includes several features such as AR Doodle, a built-in video editor, Link to Windows integration and an expanded Night Mode in the front-facing camera for better night shots.
AR Doodle will give Samsung Galaxy S10 users the freedom to customize their videos with fun, augmented-reality drawings, and messages. Live Focus video allows users to apply bokeh effects (including blur, big circle, color point, and glitch) to videos recorded on the front or rear cameras. The update also brings improved Super steady to stabilize footage and is now available in Hyperlapse mode.
The camera’s native video editor (accessible in the Gallery app) offers more opportunities to turn captured moments into shared moments. The versatile feature makes it easy to edit videos like a pro wherever you go—with simple tools for trimming clips, stitching them together, adjusting playback speed and more. You can even add subtitles and background music to video clips to easily personalize and publish footage straight from your Samsung Galaxy S10.Samsung
The productivity-enhancing features introduced with the Galaxy Note10 are also coming to the Samsung Galaxy S10, including Samsung DeX for PC. Once users download the app from SamsungDeX.com, you can launch Samsung DeX on your PC or Mac by simply connecting your Galaxy S10 to your computer via USB. Link to Windows support has also been added to the Galaxy S10, allowing you to wirelessly connect your phone to your Windows 10 PC and see notifications, send and receive messages and review recent photos without pausing to look down at your phone.
This latest update also makes the Samsung Pass and Messages apps more versatile and convenient. The set-up process for Samsung Pass has been simplified so Samsung Galaxy S10 users can log-in to apps and websites through the device’s advanced biometric technologies. In Messages, new icons for adding photos and videos are positioned to the left of the text so you can effortlessly access the files you need.Samsung
