Samsung has confirmed that it will soon roll out a new software update for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. The update will allow these devices to enhance the camera and audio experience of Galaxy phones.
After this update, Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro will support 360-degree audio recording, which can add immersive sound to video content captured by Galaxy phones. Also, the camera controller on the Galaxy Watch will get new functionality.
The 360-degree audio recording feature will capture the sound in the video as it is heard in real life. This means it is now possible to record video with high-quality, lifelike audio without the need for expensive professional equipment.
This feature works by picking up 360-degree sound through the microphones in each earbud. Playing videos on devices that support 360-degree audio, such as the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, will provide users with an immersive and lifelike experience.
360-degree audio recording is the first feature in the Galaxy series to use the Bluetooth LE audio standard. Binaural recording is also possible on the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro by using the left and right microphones simultaneously. This feature can be enabled for Galaxy Buds 2 Pro users when their headphones are paired with a Galaxy phone running One UI 5.0 or later that supports LE audio. Compatible with Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 devices, in addition to upcoming Samsung phones.
The Galaxy Watch camera controller app allows users to control the device’s camera from the wrist. Samsung is releasing an update for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 that brings zoom control to the camera controller app.
Users can remotely control the zoom of the phone camera through the wrist. Pinch the dial or rotate the bezel to zoom in or out. This will make it easier to take group photos or selfies from a distance.
A software update for the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro that enables 360-degree audio recording will be rolling out gradually starting today. The camera zoom control feature will be released for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 4 series starting in February.
