Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Galaxy S III comes to contextual functions
Samsung has begun shipping the latest operating system update its Galaxy S III , Android 4.1.2. This Premium Suite includes contextual features, plus new tools, like the ability to view two applications on the screen, something that can make the Galaxy Note II .
Thus, thanks to the “context awareness”, the phones will be able, for example, to detect you have connected the headphones and immediately start playing your favorite songs from the user, if this option is selected before. So far the company has not announced other functions as may be aware of the physical use is made of Galaxy S III.
Also now be possible to show first the most used applications on the menus, something that Samsung considered especially useful when attaching files.
Moreover, the update allows you to add tags to photos with information about the context in which they were made, such as the location, date, or even the weather.
The most notable improvement is the option to view two applications simultaneously on screen. Once that has been activated in the settings menu just select the icon of the program you want to open and drag it to the screen.
Other highlights are:
- Share photos automatically through NFC.
- Reading mode to fit the text from any web page on the device screen. Also you can share the URL with a single step.
- The ability to access the Facebook news feed directly from the lock screen. A nightmare for privacy if you lose your phone, on the other hand, makes it much easier to see the social network.
In any case, the company claims that this is just the beginning and that “soon” announce more features and tools in the second part of the video he posted on his website.
The new Premium Suite is now available in several European countries such as France, Italy and the UK and should arrive soon to other locations where they can be downloaded.Tags: Galaxy S III, Jelly Bean Android
