Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 OS

Apparently, after the update, if your Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch 4 Classic was turned off or the battery was drained completely, the watch could not be turned on again. Samsung was quick to acknowledge the issue and came up with a software update to fix the issue for the Galaxy Watch 4 series.

While it may seem to be good news, it was not the case for all the users. The new software update ending with GVI4 is being rolled out in many regions including the US and Europe. The new update is available for Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series. In the official catalogue, the update states it consists of November 2022 security patch and improves the overall stability and reliability of the device. The key information in the catalogue reads “A power operation-related stabilization code has been applied,” which is the fix related to the bricking issue caused by the previous update.

While the update should have fixed the bricking issue for users, several reports on Reddit from owners of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 indicate that it is not the case. Many users have been reporting, after the installation of the update GVI4, their smartwatches would be stuck in the boot loop for several minutes before booting in the OS.

This is not the case for everyone though. Considering the Reddit reports, the issue seems to be plaguing about half of the users. Some users are reporting the issue is more prone in the watches manufactured around August 2021 than the ones manufactured recently.

Google is testing new security features, including theft detection lock, remote lock, and offline device lock, first available in Brazil. Users can sign up via a form to participate in the beta testing. The theft detection lock uses sensors and AI to identify and lock a phone if stolen, while the offline device lock cuts off internet access. The remote lock allows users to lock and wipe data remotely. These features aim to prevent unauthorized access, factory resets, and reselling of stolen devices. Google plans a broader rollout and is enhancing security with upcoming features like a private space for Android 15.

Samsung has teamed up with Paytm to integrate movie and travel ticket booking services into the Samsung Wallet app for Galaxy smartphone users in India. This collaboration enables users to buy and store tickets for events, movies, buses, and flights directly within the app, eliminating the need for additional apps. Samsung is also offering discounts of up to Rs 1,150 on first-time bookings and a referral scheme with Amazon gift vouchers. This new feature positions Samsung Wallet as a competitor to the recently launched Google Wallet app in India, which does not yet offer similar ticket booking capabilities.

Google's June 2024 Pixel Feature Drop includes a new Reverse Phone Number Lookup feature, allowing Pixel users to identify unknown callers directly from their call logs without needing third-party apps like Truecaller. This feature, compatible with Pixel 6 and later models with a Tensor chip, enhances convenience by eliminating the need to copy and paste numbers into search fields or separate apps. While the feature is currently exclusive to Pixel devices, Google has not disclosed any regional limitations or whether it will extend to other Android devices. For non-Pixel users, Truecaller remains a viable option.
