Galaxy A32 Android 12 update features
The Android 12 update for the Galaxy A32 brings a refreshed UI design with the Color Palette feature, new widget designs, improved AoD and Dark Mode, improved sharing menu, and more lock screen widgets. Samsung has also enhanced its stock apps, including Samsung Calendar, Samsung Messages, Samsung My Files, Samsung Internet, and Samsung Keyboard.
As per the official changelog, the Gallery app now allows removing date, time, and location information while sharing images. It also creates better stories from your pictures and videos and offers easier album sorting. Samsung Keyboard gets animated emoji pairs, a quick access bar for stickers and GIFs, and Grammarly-powered language suggestions.
You can now change the audio output location directly from the lock screen. The camera app has been cleaned up, and video recording starts as soon as you touch the shutter button in the Video mode. The update also brings Portrait mode for pets and adds an enhanced document scanning feature.
AR Emojis get up to 10 poses or expressions.
