The update also introduces new gestures for enabling split-screen while updating features for Bixby Routines and Samsung DeX. There are also a few new emojis and AR stickers. Samsung is also making some changes to its native apps such as Samsung Internet, Health, Pay, Members, the Galaxy Store, SmartThings, etc. to offer new features.
