Tizen’s My Galaxy Stories lockscreen feature coming to Galaxy smartphones
Samsung might soon be bringing a feature – My Galaxy Stories – found on Tizen smartphones to its Android devices. My Galaxy Stories is one of the lock screen options found on Tizen phones that, once set, changes the lock screen wallpaper every third time the device is woken up. It doesn’t just change the lock screen wallpaper, though. My Galaxy Stories also serves up information on the subject of the wallpaper, with the option to read further about the same if the user so desires.
Curated content right on the lock screen
For the Android version, My Galaxy Stories would also show curated news stories and trending videos on the lock screen. Users will also be able to add their personal images from the gallery, which would be displayed in between the curated content based on the frequency selected. This curated content – which is what Samsung calls Stories – will come from multiple categories, and it might also be based on the country. Samsung’s even building in support for showing advertisement inside My Galaxy Stories, though it remains to be seen how this functionality will come into play.
It’s unclear when My Galaxy Stories will be released for Samsung’s Android devices and whether it will be available for all devices or only for some of Samsung’s budget phones.Join the Discussion
