16.10.2021 | Samsung’s browser is now available for its Wear OS smartwatches
According to 9to5Google - Samsung has brought its Samsung Internet web browser to the new Wear OS-based Galaxy Watch 4.
Browsing on a watch doesn’t sound like an ideal way to surf the internet for a long period of time. However, we could still use it for small tasks like checking a name or finding an address and according to 9to5 Google’s testing, it seems Samsung has thought of some neat tricks to make it possible to navigate the web from your watch.
An obvious question about a web browser on your wrist is how exactly that tiny, circular display can manage to show full webpages. Samsung’s answer is with gestures. A guide will come up when you navigate to your first webpage that explains a diagonal swipe from either side of the screen will allow users to get to the corners of a webpage. Meanwhile, a swipe up reveals options for bookmarks, “Zoom mode,” and a shortcut to send the webpage directly to your connected phone.
