Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra yesterday – all three featuring artificial intelligence. Galaxy AI. Unlike any Samsung device to date (they’re all on One UI 6), they’ll run Android 14 with One UI 6.1 on top.
You may wonder if your older Samsung will eventually get some of those AI features if you have an older Samsung. Yes, you’re right. According to Samsung, there are “many” of them.
At least initially, these AI features will be available on the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy Z Fold5, Galaxy Z Flip5, and Galaxy Tab S9 series. It is expected that all of these will receive AI infusions in the first half of the year.
Assuming this is correct, they’ll be updated to One UI 6.1 by the end of June, with “many” AI features first seen on the S24 – many, but not all. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when we find out which features will cut.
Standalone Samsung Find App:
The latest version of Samsung’s One UI 6.1 brings several changes, including AI support.
Samsung has introduced several AI features only available on the Galaxy S24 series devices, such as Circle search and Live translation. Additionally, the company has improved upon existing features.
SmartThings has been upgraded to feature “Samsung Find”, which replaces “SmartThings Find”.
Samsung Find is now a stand-alone app for your Galaxy device, first spotted by Mishaal Rahman. Besides just rebranding SmartThings Find, it includes a new feature that lets users track their family members’ devices.
Samsung Find has three tabs: Devices, Items, and People. You can locate the Galaxy devices of you and your family on a map with the Device tab. By using the items tab, you can find lost Galaxy SmartTags attached to items such as keys, wallets, or luggage, reducing the need for frantic searches. In addition, you can share your live location with family members and vice versa with the People tab.
Samsung Find lacks the “Notify When Left Behind” feature despite offering these new features. When users left tagged items behind, such as keys or headphones, this feature alerted them. Future updates may reintroduce this feature.
