Earlier today, Samsung released the first beta version of the One UI 6.0 update to the Galaxy S23. The update is available in three countries to those who registered to beta-test the new software.

One UI 6.0 Custom Camera widget explained
The Custom Camera widget lets you quickly open the camera in a particular mode. For example, if you use the camera to shoot a lot of portrait shots using the front-facing camera or videos or pictures of food using the Food mode, you can configure the Custom Camera widget to open directly in the Portrait Mode.
The new widget offers a plethora of options, including which camera and camera mode to use, where to save images and videos captured using that widget, and the background of the widget.
- Pro Video
- Super Slow-Mo
- Slow Motion
- Portrait Mode
- Director's View
- Single Take
Save Pictures & Videos To
- Custom Folder
- Use Most Recent Image In The Camera Album
- Select An Image (Custom)
This new widget could be handy for creators or those who use the camera frequently. It drastically reduces the time it takes to get to a specific camera mode and minimizes the chances of missing a critical moment. It could reach more Galaxy phones once they get the stable Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update.
