Modern technology gives us many things.

Samsung’s new software update will bring Galaxy AI to even more devices

Samsung has announced Galaxy AI that has made the recently released Galaxy S24 smartphone a huge hit will become available to other Galaxy devices via a new One UI 6.1 update.

The update will be available for the Galaxy S23 series, the S23 FE, the Galaxy Z Fold5, Z Flip5 and Tab S9 series.

It will roll out in Australia from April and will elevate the user mobile AI experience that will adopt a hybrid approach and combine on-device and cloud-based AI.

“Our goal with Galaxy AI is not only to pioneer a new era of mobile AI, but also to empower users by making AI more accessible,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics.

“This is only the beginning of Galaxy AI, as we plan to bring the experience to over 100 million Galaxy users within 2024 and continue to innovate ways to harness the unlimited possibilities of mobile AI.”

The AI features the new update will offer will include Live Translate, Chat Assist, Circle to Search, Note Assist and Browsing Assist.

The Galaxy AI tools will also allow users to edit your images with Generative Edit, Edit Suggestions and Instant Slo Mo.

One of the barriers we must overcome is the language barrier especially when travelling in foreign countries.

Galaxy AI has now made that even easier with Live Translate – a two-way real time voice and text translation of phone calls inside the native phone app.

We were able to make a restaurant booking while speaking to a Korean woman who was hearing the real time translations from English to Korean before we receive the Korean to English translations in reply.


When writing messages and using other compatible apps, chat assist can help users to tailor the message for the person who will receive it.

Chat assist can suggest other tones for your message to ensure it is appropriate communication whether it’s a message to a co-worker, or your boss or a caption for your social media post.

This feature presents your message in several other options to make it more formal, more polite, more respectful, playful and funny.


Taking notes and recording interviews are common tasks with the Galaxy Ultra devices which includes the S Pen to allow users to write down notes and organise them into preset templates and formats, create covers to make them easier to identify.

It can also be used to summarise your notes.


Search has also gone to a new level with Galaxy AI thanks to the Circle to Search feature which allows users to circle and highlight anything on your screen to see search results.

During our hands on demo, we were able to circle the sneakers being worn by a person nearby through our camera and within seconds it not only identified the sneaker but also presented online stores where we could purchase it for ourselves.

Circle to Search also works with landmarks and objects you see in the background of social media posts.

And the search takes place without you having to leave the app you’re using.


When you take a photo or look at any other photo in your gallery, you can initiate Edit Suggestion.

This AI feature looks at the photograph and suggests ways to improve it.

For example, we had an image with a shadow across the subject’s face and Galaxy AI suggested this edit and then completed the task within seconds.

In another photograph, there was an image which showed the reflection of a woman in a window. Galaxy AI was able to remove that reflection in an instant.


Generative AI really opens things up for users to remove objects from the background and move and enlarge the subject of the photo to another position wall filling in the background with impressive accuracy using generative AI.


When editing videos it’s possible to create a section in slow motion with the Galaxy AI able to insert extra frames to slow things down to focus on a particular moment.

These AI powered camera features will also work with select third party social media apps like Instagram.
