When Samsung revealed that owners of the Galaxy Watch 4 could participate in the tests, it finally ended the One UI beta program’s restriction to smartphones. The business started July with a new One UI Watch beta build following the first two beta releases.
According to XDA Developers(opens in new tab), the third One UI Watch 4.5 beta has a ton of bug fixes and enhancements to the system’s basic functionality. A system crash that happened when you tapped the Home button while scrolling is addressed by one of the standout fixes.
Additionally, it resolves problems with Bixby’s music playback and the inability to restore from Tile backups. The update also fixes prior battery consumption problems brought on by the Galaxy Buds’ auto switch communication and a Bluetooth connection issue that arises when using the Gallery app.
One UI Watch 4.5 beta 3 has a number of quality-of-life enhancements in addition to bug fixes. One of them stabilizes the touch sensitivity. The wearing detection and watch face GUI have both been enhanced.
Performance enhancements have also been made in a number of apps, including Alarm, Stopwatch, Timer, and World Clock. On their community assistance page, Samsung provides an exhaustive changelog (opens in new tab).
The firmware version in the new beta is ZVFA. Through the Galaxy Wearable app, go to Galaxy Watch 4 > Watch 4 settings > Watch software update to install it.
It comes as Evan Blass gave us the clearest glimpse we’ve had yet of the impending UI improvements brought on by Wear OS 3.5 and One UI Watch 4.5. According to the leak, the Galaxy Watch 4 and many other top Android smartwatches releasing this year will have additional accessibility customization options, visibility enhancements, and interaction changes.
