Samsung, a South Korean tech giant, has upgraded its Wear OS internet browser app to perform tasks better on smartwatches rather than its own with the introduction of new gestures.

Samsung’s smartwatch “Internet Browser” app was released in 2021 after the Galaxy Watch 4 was unveiled. The app is a convenient tool for accessing information directly from users of the Wear OS watch. However, it was designed originally with Galaxy Watch in mind.

Whereas the app was perfectly offered to other Wear OS smartwatches, it performed tasks well on a Galaxy Watch. The app lets users tap the hardware buttons to go back and forth between websites, while there’s no such option on non-Samsung smartwatches.
