Galaxy Tab A7 Lite One UI 5.1.1 features
The One UI 5.1.1 update shows more recent apps (up to four) on the taskbar. The recent apps menu shows the app window state (full-screen, split-screen, or pop-up view) of all the recent apps. You can share files with people privately and set a file expiration window for those files. You can also cancel shares or stop people from downloading the files you shared with them.
When you share files with others via Quick Share, the files will continue being sent even if the other person has left the local Wi-Fi network range. In the Gallery app, you can apply image effects more easily and even copy edits from one image and paste those effects to other images easily. When downloading system updates, the tablet can temporarily delete cache and other files to make space for the update if the tablet runs out of storage space.
With the new two-hand drag-and-drop gesture, you can easily select multiple images from one app/window, drag them, and drop those files in another app/window. Samsung Internet lets you move the bookmarks bar and the taskbar to the bottom of the screen. You can change Modes from the lock screen of the tablet.
