Updated: The tutorial has been updated to work on Samsung’s latest One UI 5.1 firmware update based on Android 13. Here is how to download and install custom fonts like Google Sans from Pixel 7 Pro on any of your Samsung Galaxy device.

Original: Samsung rolled out latest One UI 5 firmware update based on Android 13 for several Galaxy S-series, Fold-series, and even A-series devices via beta program. The One UI beta program is in its third phase and can be used as a daily driver, according to some beta testers. If you like customizing your device, here is how to setup custom fonts on any Samsung Galaxy device on the latest One UI 5 (Android 13) firmware update.

The One UI 5 OTA update comes with tons of features and customization options. Most importantly, the improved color pallet based on the Material You design introduced in Android 13.

You can further customize every aspect of your Samsung Galaxy device with the help of Good Lock plugins which support Android 13 now. Plus, you can download Galaxy Themes, Icon packs, AOD, and stunning wallpaper packs from the Galaxy store.

The only thing missing, in my opinion, is the support for custom Fonts. Samsung has a very limited set of fonts. While the default Samsung One font is pretty cool, I really like the Google Sans font from the Pixel smartphones. If you like to see an example of Google Sans font visit Google Store.
