AI features of One UI 6.1 from Samsung Galaxy S24 series

Apart from the general features, the One UI 6.1 packs many AI features including AI Wallpaper, AI Chatbot, Call transcriptions, Suggested Actions, Text Toning and Translate.

1) AI Wallpapers

Similar to Google’s AI Wallpaper, which can be tried on any Android right now, Samsung has also borrowed this feature and baked their own version into One UI 6.1. You will find 12 categories with different preset prompts, all including 1-3 customizable options. Checkout the video below in operation.

2) Image Magic Editor

Using AI, your Samsung device will be able to take an existing photo and generate more from it. Just like Adobe’s Generative AI called Firefly. You can expand beyond the borders and add more content to it. You can also move and resize objects.

3) Call transcription & live translate

This is another feature borrowed from Google’s Pixel Experience, wherein you can transcribe a phone call and also live translate it. This feature is long awaited in Samsung Galaxy devices and will finally arrive with One UI 6.

4) Suggested actions

With suggested actions, you can receive personalized suggestions such as “Display the location on a map,” “Dial the specified number,” or “Visit the indicated website,” all generated from the content of a call transcript, photograph, or screen recording.

5) AI Chatbot

The Samsung Galaxy S24 will also come with an AI Chatbot. Samsung Keyboard on One UI 6.1 comes with a new option in setting to select Gen AI model from PaLM2, GPT4, Gecko, and Samsung’s very own Scs Translate Model; which can also work on-device.

Upon pressing the magic button on Samsung Keyboard, your text undergoes automatic tone variations, offering diverse styles such as professional, casual, fun, witty, and more. Additionally, you have the flexibility to translate your text into any language as desired.

6) Change the time, weather and background color in an image

This is an absolutely stunning feature that will change the background wallpaper’s time of day and the weather. For instance, if you have a landscape as a background, it can change the weather into sunny, cloudy, rainy, or snowy.

7) Organize paragraphs

This is a Samsung Notes feature which allows you to organize paragraphs into nicely laid out bullet points. I couldn’t show this because there was no updated Notes app yet.
