Samsung’s latest One UI 6 Beta 3 update for the Galaxy S23 has brought a range of exciting new features, but one in particular seems to have slipped under the radar. With this update, users now have more control over which apps are updated alongside the installation of the latest Android updates.
Previously, users had no say in the matter, as Samsung would automatically update all system apps on the phone, even if a newer version had bugs. However, the new user control feature in One UI 6 changes that. It allows Galaxy owners to choose which system apps are updated when installing the new Android version.
To access this feature, users need to go to the Software Update section. There, they will find a small section that states, “Some apps can be updated along with this software update.” Clicking on the “Choose apps to update” link will redirect users to a new screen where they can select which apps will be updated alongside the system update.
The process is simple: users can check the boxes next to the apps they want to update, and any app not chosen will need to be updated manually. This not only gives users more control over their devices but also helps to speed up the Android OS update process. By separating the app updates from the system update, users can prioritize what needs to be updated first, saving time and hassle.
However, it’s important to note that apps available on both the Google Play Store and Galaxy Store may still be automatically updated depending on the settings chosen in those respective app stores. While this new feature gives users more control over system apps, other apps downloaded from the stores mentioned above may still update automatically.
All in all, the new user control feature in One UI 6 is a welcome addition for Galaxy S23 users. It empowers them to choose which system apps should be updated during the Android update process, giving them more flexibility and control over their devices. With this feature, app updates can be conveniently done at a later time, ensuring a smoother and more efficient update process for Android OS.
