No changelog is available but we can expect the usual Android 11 updates like one-time permissions, chat bubbles, better UI design, a centralized media player widget, auto permissions reset, quick access to smart home controls, and a conversations section within the notifications. Overal, you can expect enhanced security and performance.
The latest One UI 3.1 features deliver a new Device Care section, ability to remove GPS location data, better Samsung Keyboard and Samsung Internet apps, updated stock apps with new features, and enhanced Digital Wellbeing and parental controls.
