Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series receives another One UI Watch 4.5 beta update with several bug fixes

While Samsung’s latest Wear OS smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, launched with One UI Watch 4.5 based on Wear OS 3.5, the older Galaxy Watch 4 series is yet to receive the update. Samsung has been testing the update for a while now and has released five beta builds so far, giving users a chance to experience the new QWERTY keyboard, accessibility features, and more ahead of the stable rollout. The fifth One UI Watch 4.5 beta update rolled out to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic late last month, bringing several bug fixes and improvements. Now, Samsung is rolling out another bug fix update on the beta channel.
