Samsung has a fantastic tool for Galaxy users called Good Lock App. It contains a variety of modules that help you completely personalize your phone. It’s One Hand Operation+ module received an upgrade last week that added support for One UI 4.1.1 (Android 12L) and the fantastic Widget Pop-up functionality. In this guide, you’ll learn how to enable and use pop-up widgets on Samsung Galaxy phones.
The One UI 4.1.1 upgrade, which runs on Android 12L, is designed for large-screen devices like tablets and foldable phones, although some new features may also be added to select ordinary phones. Anyway, I’ll cover Samsung One UI 4.1.1 in another post; now, I want to talk about the Widgets pop-up feature that came with the brand-new version.
Additionally, the One Hand Operation Plus software allows users to activate a variety of swipe motions for operating their Galaxy smartphone conveniently, including accessing landscape view, the flashlight, split-screen, task switcher, Quick tools, and others.
The Widgets pop-up has updated the list of these gestures in the interim. This gesture may be placed on either side of your screen at your discretion. You will notice a pop-up that displays the widgets you will add to it when you swipe to open it.
The widgets you want will need to be customized and set up. Additionally, you may swipe to see the other widgets and add new widgets to the following page.
