Last updated: September 9th, 2016 at 11:02 UTC+02:00

Samsung has updated the S Health app today with some new features. Version of the app, which can be downloaded from Google Play Store, now comes with a larger variety of health content in some countries. You can now save records of step challenges, which were introduced in the last update. The step challenges will be saved using your Samsung account.

Here’s the complete changelog for the new version of the S Health app:

  • Cheer your friends on with messages, and block unwanted people so they can’t invite you to Steps challenges.

  • New menus added and design improved.
  • User experience improved and bugs fixed.
