Samsung updates Note 8’s Air Command and Live Message features, other apps
If you head over to Galaxy Apps on your Galaxy Note 8 today, you will see updates to a slew of Samsung’s proprietary apps. Most of these are updates to basic apps like messages, contacts, clock, and the Samsung video player, but for the Note 8, you will also see updates to the Air Command and Live Message features. The Live Message update is a substantial one. On the newest version, you can now create smaller sized GIFs by selecting the standard quality option, and Samsung has also added a few default live message templates, so you can send them to your friends and family without needing to create a message yourself.
For the other apps that have received an update, improvements to integration with Bixby is a common theme if you check the changelogs. Bixby Vision is also getting an update, and so are Game Tools and Game Launcher. You should see some of these updates on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ as well; to download them, open Galaxy Apps, tap the three-dot menu button on the top right, select My Apps, then hit Update. Keep in mind that you need to be logged in to your Samsung account to access updates on Galaxy Apps. If you prefer a more hands-on approach, you can also download the latest APKs from our APK database.
