Last updated: April 29th, 2019 at 10:23 UTC+02:00

Samsung has started rolling out a new update to the Galaxy A50 in India. The update introduces a number of new features to the device, and also bundles the April 2019 security patch. Samsung also promises improved fingerprint recognition on the Galaxy A50 with the latest update.

The update is available over the air and can be expected to reach all Galaxy A50 units over the next few days. It carriers software version A505FDDU1ASD6 and weighs just over 666 MB.

Bixby Routines comes to the Galaxy A50

Samsung launched Bixby Routines, a feature that works on the If This Then That (IFTTT) principle, with the Galaxy S10 series earlier this year. The feature is also available in Samsung's newer devices, such as the Galaxy A80. And with the latest software update, Bixby Routines has arrived on the Galaxy A50 as well.

The update also brings a number of new features to the Galaxy A50's camera. The device gets a “Beauty Video Mode” for both front and rear cameras and supports more background effects for Live Focus images. The new update also adds a narrower 68-degree field of view for the front camera. Earlier, the front camera only offered a wider field of view.

Lastly, the Galaxy A50 now supports call and message continuity. You can make and answer calls and text messages from other compatible devices signed into your Samsung account.

As always, Samsung is rolling out the update in stages. To check if it’s available for your Galaxy A50, head into Settings, navigate to Software update, then select Download and install. Drop a comment below and let us know if you've received the update.
