How to use the One UI 5.1 interface in Samsung phones
|Samsung One UI 5.1|
Last February, Samsung launched the version of the user interface (One UI 5.1) for its phones, which is based on the Android 13 system. This version includes a set of improvements in the camera, photo gallery, multitasking, and others.
The user interface (One UI) from Samsung is one of the most customizable interfaces in smartphones, as it allows you to customize your Samsung phone as you wish, through many options and features that you can use.
Here are the most prominent new features in (One UI 5.1) that you can use on your phone
1- New battery widget:
One UI 5.1 version provides a new battery widget that shows you the current battery level of your phone and connected devices such as speakers, smartwatch, and any other connected devices. It's similar to the iPhone's lock screen widget, but it's only available for the home screen.
To access this new widget, you can follow these steps:
- Press and hold an empty space on the phone's home screen.
- Click on the widget icon that appears at the bottom of the screen.
- Click on the (Battery) option.
- You will see two different styles for the battery widget: the first shows you the status of the batteries of the devices connected to the phone in the form of circles, and the second shows you the battery statuses in the form of a list, choose the style that suits you, then press and hold it and drag it to the home screen.
- The battery widget displays the battery status of four devices by default, but you can resize it to fit up to eight devices.
2- Take a screenshot through the quick settings panel
There are several ways to take a screenshot on Samsung phones, and the version of the (One UI 5.1) interface adds another new way, as you can now take a screenshot directly from the quick settings panel.
To use this feature, you must customize the quick settings panel and add a screenshot button to it by following these steps:
- Swipe down from the top of the screen with two fingers to bring up the quick settings panel.
- In the quick settings panel, swipe left, then tap the (More) + button.
- Look for the Take screenshot button in the Available buttons section, then touch and hold it to move.
- Drag and drop the button in the quick settings panel, then press the Done option that appears at the bottom of the screen.
Once you add the button to the quick settings panel, all you have to do when you need to take a screenshot is just press the button in the quick settings panel.
You can also press and hold the button to reveal the screenshot settings that you may want to change, including: the (Palm Swipe) setting that allows you to take a screenshot by passing your hand over the phone screen, and the setting for selecting the screenshot image format to be PNG or JPG , and so on.
In the One UI 5.1 interface, Samsung introduced a set of improvements in the Gallery application, perhaps the most important of which is the Image Clipper feature, which provides you with the easiest ways to edit images and remove their backgrounds with a single click.
All you have to do to use this feature is to open the photo you want to edit, then press and hold on the photo and specifically on the part you want to separate whether it is a person or something else, you will see a popup asking you to copy or share, or save it as a separate file.
Or, you can drag and drop the part of the photo you want to cut out anywhere on the phone, just as you would drag any other photo. This includes dragging it to any app on the phone where you can drag it to Notes or Messages as you like.
This feature relies on machine learning to recognize specific things in your photos, such as: famous landmarks, flowers, plants, some breeds of pets, and even birds and insects.
4- Text calls feature via Bixby assistant
Similar to the (Screen Call) feature in Google (Pixel) phones; The Bixby Text Call feature on Samsung phones allows the voice assistant to take the call for you and ask the caller why they are calling, and provide you with a text of what the caller says in real time, and the Bixby assistant reads your responses out loud using the text-to-speech system.
Samsung introduced the (Bixby Text Call) feature in the version of the (One UI 5) interface, but it was limited to the Korean language only, and in the (One UI 5.1) version, the feature also supports the English language.
This feature is designed to deal with spam calls, but you can also use it when you are somewhere and can't answer the call.
You can activate this feature on your phone through the following steps:
- Go to the phone app (Samsung Phone) on your phone.
- Click on the menu option which is represented by three vertical dots located in the upper-right corner.
- Click on the (Settings) option.
- Click on the option (voice calls via Bixby) Bixby Text Call, and activate it by pressing the toggle button.
