One UI 3.1 vs One UI 3.0: Here are the new features that Samsung added:
Samsung has done a great job of updating its devices to One UI 3.0 based on Android 11 over the last few weeks. The software update has already rolled out to several Galaxy devices, and we expect Samsung to maintain its fast rollout schedule for its next software release — One UI 3.1. For the unaware, One UI 3.1, which is also based on Android 11, debuted with the Galaxy S21 series earlier this month, and it packs quite a few new features and changes. The update has already started rolling out to the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus, and it should arrive on other Galaxy devices in the coming weeks. While you’re waiting for the update to roll out to your device, here’s a quick look at all the new software features and changes included in One UI 3.1.
Note: Not all of these features will be available on other Galaxy devices. To find out what features are headed to your device, be sure to thoroughly read the update changelog when the One UI 3.1 update arrives on your device! In addition, this post doesn’t include some of the new features that are exclusive to the Galaxy S21 lineup.
New features in One UI 3.1:
Google Discover feed integration
You can customize the stock launcher on One UI 3.1 to display the Google Discover feed on the minus-one screen. By default, the stock launcher is configured to show Samsung Free on the minus-one screen, but you can change that by following these steps:
- Tap and hold on the home screen to open the customization settings.
- Swipe all the way to the left until you see the following page
- Tap on the Google Discover option
The Google Discover feed will then show up on the minus one screen. You can switch back to Samsung Free anytime you want by following the same steps. You can also turn off the feature altogether by tapping on the toggle in the top right corner.

Google Duo integration
Samsung has worked closely with Google to offer better Google Duo integration in One UI 3.1. The company’s latest software release features seamless Google Duo integration in the stock dialer app. As you can see in the below screenshots, the three-dot menu in the stock dialer now has a new ‘Make video calls using’ option. Tapping on this option lets you select Google Duo as your preferred video calling service. Once you select Google Duo as the default video calling service, you’ll notice a new Google Duo button next to the call button on the dialer whenever you select a contact who’s available on Google Duo. You can tap on this button to instantly start a video call with the contact. Along with seamless Google Duo integration in the stock dialer, the Galaxy S21 lineup also supports Google Duo’s auto-framing feature. The feature automatically keeps you front and center during video calls, eliminating the need to adjust the frame constantly. As of now, it isn’t clear if the feature will roll out to other Samsung devices with the One UI 3.1 update.
Video call effects
While we’re on the topic of video calling, let’s take a look at another cool new feature in One UI 3.1 — Video call effects. The feature can be found within the ‘Advanced features’ section in the device settings, and it lets you automatically add cool background effects during video calls.
As you can see in the attached screenshots, the feature currently offers three background effects — Blur, Color, and Image. When enabled, the Blur option adds a background blur in the video calls, the Color option covers the background in a solid color, and the Image option covers the background with a custom image of your choice. After you select one of the three options, you can tap on the ‘Preview’ button to see what the background will look like during video calls. The page also lists supported apps that will make use of the video call effects once the feature is enabled.
Remove GPS location data from photos & Private Share
During the Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung talked about a new privacy-related feature for the Galaxy S21 lineup. The feature lets you easily remove location data from photos before you share them. To do so, all you need to do is select a photo in the Gallery app, hit the share button, and then tap on the “Remove location data” option underneath the preview in the share sheet. Using this feature will strip the photo of location data like the latitude and longitude of where it was taken before it’s shared. To give you more control over the content you share, Samsung has also launched a new Private Share app. You can use it to share any file, including images, videos, and documents, and choose when to revoke access to the file. However, you first need to enable the app from the device settings. You can do so by heading over to the Biometrics and security settings and tapping on the new Private Share option. This will open up a new window that will let you add the Private Share app to the app drawer. You can then open the app by tapping on the Private Share icon, tap on the ‘Share files’ button in the menu, and then select the recipient from the following screen. The app will then let you manually revoke access to the file at any time, or you can wait 2 days for the recipient’s access to automatically expire. The new Private Share app works on all Galaxy devices running Android 9 or later, but both the sender and the recipient need to have the app installed on their device to share files.
