Samsung brings new messaging feature, more AR Emoji options to Galaxy S9/S9+
These changes come in addition to the July security patch, which is now rolling out to Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices across the world. The update weighs in at 533MB and includes a new feature - Call and Message Continuity, SamMobile reports. Call and Message Continuity is meant for customers who own not just a Samsung smartphone, but a tablet as well.
With the new feature, those using Galaxy tablets will be able to accept calls and read their messages from their slate as long as they are logged in to the same Samsung account as their Galaxy phone. The new feature uses either Wi-Fi or mobile data connection, so your phone doesn't have to be close by to be able to take calls from the tablet. You can find the new feature in the Connections menu.
Furthermore, the latest update brings the Galaxy S9/S9+ closer to the newest Galaxy S10 series by adding a couple of new customization options for AR Emoji. Also, the UI has been updated to be cleaner and easier to use.
For the time being, the update is only available in Germany, but Exynos-powered Galaxy S9/S9+ units all over the world should get it as well in the coming weeks.
