Samsung Internet 8.0 goes stable, offers faster downloads, improved privacy and more
More than a month since it was released in beta form, version 8.0 of Samsung Internet has now gone stable and is available for everyone to download. Beta testers have been reaping its benefits for some time now, and if you have been sticking to the regular Samsung Internet app, those benefits will be available to you as well with the latest update on Google Play.
Samsung Internet 8.0: Faster downloads, enhanced privacy
Samsung Internet 8.0 brings faster download speeds, achieved by using multiple parallel connections. That’s similar to how download accelerators work on Windows and other desktop OS. Privacy has been improved as well, with a new Do not track option available so you can prevent websites from tracking your browsing habits. Also new is the ability to sync your favorite sites across different Samsung devices using Samsung’s Smart Switch app. Version 8.0 also gets a new Chromium engine under the hood.
If you have Samsung Internet installed on your Galaxy or other Android smartphone, the update to version 8.0 should be available to you from Google Play. The updated version can also be downloaded in APK form from our database and installed manually on your device.
