The latest software update, featuring August Android security patch, released for Galaxy S7 and its curved screen spin-off S7 Edge, brings a new Gallery app. The feature made its debut through Samsung's latest Galaxy Note 7.
The updated Gallery app features Samsung's new UX interface along with a couple of notable technologies such as face and object recognition. The function of the Gallery app is very much like Google Photo's search feature that automatically recognises faces and other objects and then puts them into various categories, reports Sammobile. For instance, if you use a particular keyword (outing photos, flower and family) to search for photos, then you will get all the photos related to the keyword.
The Gallery app and Grace UX are expected to be available for other Galaxy flagship devices. Grace UX might be part of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy phones. Apart from the Gallery app, another Note 7 feature which is available for the S7 duo through the update is Samsung Cloud. Like Note 7 users, S7 users will get 15GB of free storage with the Samsung cloud service.
Other key elements of the update include security patches and enhanced performance for Bluetooth and NFC. The over-the-air update weighs in at 151.89MB. To grab it manually, go to Settings>> About device>> and then hit Download. Alternatively, use Samsung Smart Switch software to download it.
