Samsung has also started updating its old wearable apps to support the new Galaxy Watch 4 duo. Last month, the company updated the PPT Controller app to support the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Now, it’s offering the same update for the Samsung Internet Browser.
As per a report by Tizen Help, the update brings support for Wear OS-based smartwatches. However, it only supports the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic at the moment.
Samsung Internet Browser
The Samsung Internet Browser on the Galaxy Watch 4 will let you open any website, watch YouTube videos, add bookmarks, and even conduct a quick search. Browsing on a watch doesn’t sound like an ideal way to surf the web for a long period of time, but it could be useful for small tasks like checking a name or looking up a place.
The app features a Zoom mode to help users read text while browsing on their Galaxy Watch 4, and it offers support for voice input, swipe gestures and a keypad. It also includes a Show on phone option that claims to let you transition from the watch to your phone.
A browser on a smartwatch isn’t new, Samsung also has a browser for its Tizen-based smartwatches and even the Apple Watch has built-in browsing capabilities (though there’s no dedicated Apple Watch version of Safari).
