Samsung home-cooked internet browser application for mobile devices has been recently released in the Google Play Store. It’s the first step taken by the South Korean company in making the browser available to smartphones launched by other brands.
Moreover, those who install Samsung Internet beta will receive early access to the newest features added by the developers. Unfortunately, not many smartphones are compatible with the newly launched browser.
According to Samsung, the Internet browser app will work on all Samsung Galaxy and Google Nexus phones with Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. However, it doesn’t seem to be available in all countries yet.
Although it’s a beta version, the application has been beefed with many interesting features like support for 360 videos, which allows users to watch 360-degree videos without using aGear VR headset.
Also, a picture-in-picture mode is available as well, along with Amazon Shopping Assistant that lets users compare prices on Amazon. Web payment and DuckDuckGo search engine support are included too.
Hopefully, Samsung will expand the app’s availability in the coming weeks, so customers in more countries can give it a go.
