The beta version of the Samsung Internet 14.0 is now ready to download on the Google Play Store or Galaxy Store.
Samsung Electronics recently released Samsung Internet 14.0 beta, which offers improved privacy and security settings, a revamped viewing experience on Galaxy foldable devices, and new UI innovations.
Mobile internet browsers are getting more robust and full-featured and those that are not named Chrome have been adding new things to get people to switch to them. For Samsung users, the Samsung Internet browser has been getting more useful and convenient as of late, especially if you’re using a Galaxy foldable device. The beta version of the browser, version 14.0 is now available for download. It brings new privacy and security settings, a better viewing experience for the foldables, and UI innovations for everyone.
“Samsung is constantly looking for ways to enhance the security of its services and protect users’ privacy,” says Du Kim, VP and Head of Web R&D Group, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “With Samsung Internet 14.0 beta, we want users to enjoy browsing with peace of mind, knowing they’ll have full control and visibility over their data.”
New and Improved Privacy Features
Samsung Internet 14.0 beta helps keep you protected while browsing with enhanced Smart anti-tracking, which detects when a website is trying to track you and automatically stops them.
Samsung Internet 14.0 beta also introduces a new security control panel, designed to make it easier for you to monitor and control your privacy settings and view useful daily stats, such as how many pop-ups and trackers have been blocked. This feature will help you make informed decisions about your privacy.
Revamped Viewing Experience on Galaxy Foldable Devices
If you’re using a Galaxy foldable device, you’ll be able to enjoy Flex mode, which lets you watch a video on the top half of the screen while the video controls are displayed on the lower half for a more comfortable viewing experience.
With Samsung Internet 14.0, Flex mode will be enabled automatically when playing a video in full screen. You no longer have to go through the Video assistant to switch it on.
Take Multitasking To New Heights
Samsung Internet 14.0 beta enables the App Pair feature to launch multiple Samsung Internet browsers simultaneously, allowing you to view web content in a split-screen format. This means, you can watch a tutorial while reading a recipe or easily compare prices when shopping online.
Customize Your Browsing Experience With Your Favorite Font
With Samsung Internet 14.0 beta, you can customize your online browsing experience by applying your favorite font, or a font that you find easier to read. Enter ‘Labs’ in the Samsung Internet Settings menu to make fonts on websites match the one you use on your phone.
Other useful features on Samsung Internet 14.0 beta include:
‘S Pen to text’ on Galaxy Tab S7 series: Using your S Pen, you can now write directly into text box areas, including address bars, and your handwriting will be transformed into text.
Reader mode: Use the improved Reader mode to automatically reorganize, text-heavy pages into a more digestible and easy-to-read format.
Translation Extension: Powered by Samsung Research’s translation engine, this browser extension supports 18 languages5, allowing you to easily view translations as you browse the web.
Furthermore, Samsung Internet 14.0 beta brings support for Samsung’s App Pair feature, which will let you open two instances of the browser in split-screen mode. It also introduces support for custom fonts, S Pen handwriting recognition on the Galaxy Tab S7 series, improvements for the Reader mode, and a new Translation extension.
If you’re a part of Samsung Internet’s beta program, you should be able to download the latest beta release from the Google Play Store or the Samsung Galaxy Store starting today. But if you’re on the stable channel, you’ll have to wait until April to receive all the aforementioned features with a stable update.
