Samsung Internet beta latest update brings new security improvements to the app – Gadgets Now

Samsung Internet is quite a popular browser among those who use smartphones from the South Korean brand. Samsung also keeps on giving timely updates to the app with new features, UI-improvements and more. Now, SamMobile has reported that the browser has received its latest beta update version with a host of new security and privacy features along with UI-improvements. The beta update also brings support for DuckDuckGo search engine to improve users’ privacy.

In addition to improved support for third-party ad blockers, the browser has now received a new feature called ‘Block unwanted pages’. This feature is expected to block popup websites or malware websites.

Talking about interface improvements, the browser now allows users to add more shortcuts to actions such as Share, Secret Mode, right into the bottom menu bar. This will make accessing some most commonly used features easier for users.

The beta update also brings support for progressive web apps that allow supported websites to be installed as apps. The video assistant feature also seems to make a return in the beta version as Samsung had removed it from the final version of the app a while ago. Now, the assistant is much more capable than before as it lets users change the viewing modes while watching 360-degree videos.

Samsung Internet Beta is already available via Google Play Store. However, these are just beta features and there’s no certainty that all of them will make it to the final version of the app. Also, there’s no information available when Samsung is planning to launch the next update for its Internet app.
