Trust Us When We Say Your Samsung Galaxy Fold Is Your Next Work Toy
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 are the new charms in the foldable phone world. They offer a TON of amazing features for creativity, gaming, entertainment and socializing – not to mention productivity and business.
But guess what? You don’t need the very best and latest Samsung foldable phone to reap the benefits at work. 😌
Part of what makes the Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 awesome is the new One UI 3.1.1, which Samsung has just announced is coming to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Flip too.
One UI 3.1.1 comes with a number of upgrades including the ability to rotate any app, set custom aspect ratios, use app split view and pin favorites to your Taskbar. But three productivity features definitely stand out for the working crowd. 👩💻
Drag & Split
It can be a total nightmare when you want to use your phone to look at two web pages, documents or spreadsheets at once.
Drag & Split is a bit like multi-window mode, but it works within a single app so you don’t have to switch back and forth between windows and tabs a zillion times. 💆♀️
With Drag & Split on the Samsung Z Fold and Z Flip, you can tap and hold a link and drag it to the top, bottom, left or right of your screen. This will open it up in a split view, letting you view both windows at the same time.
What’s extra cool is that it doesn’t just work with the browser: you can also use it in apps like Notes, Messages, OneDrive and the Microsoft Office suite.
Custom window size
One of the biggest perks of Samsung foldable phones is being able to use a bunch of apps at once on the main display. Refer to work documents while you write an email, compare two spreadsheets or look at reference images while you sketch design ideas – anything goes!
But having each app at a fixed size can feel a little cramped, so One UI 3.1.1 lets you change the height and width of your app windows until they’re just how you like it. You can even switch on Multi Window for apps that don’t have built-in support. Go to Settings > Advanced Features > Labs > Multi Window for all apps.
Anything that gives you more choice is a massive win in our book. 🤩
Flex Mode Panel
Flex Mode is the bread and butter of Samsung foldable phones. It lets you use the device half-folded for hands-free streaming and video calls, stunning hyperlapses and more creative selfies.
One UI 3.1.1 makes Flex Mode even awesomer (yup that’s a real word 😇) by letting you switch it on for apps that don’t have built-in support. When you switch on Multi Window for all apps, simply tap the Flex mode panel and choose the apps you want to use.
The best data plan for Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold
One UI 3.1.1 makes it easier than ever to stay productive on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy Z Flip. Take notes during video meetings, use your phone as your second laptop, work at home, in the office or on the go – the possibilities are endless.
