Samsung Home Up update adds convenient share sheet customization

Samsung on Friday released an update to its Home Up app, which is available as part of the company’s fantastic Good Lock experience (via AndroidPolice). The update includes a handful of new features, including a Share Manager, which gives users the ability to customize the share sheet.

“You can place apps that you use often to the front of the sharing window and hide features and apps that you don’t need,” Samsung said of the update. “You can hide items such as shared data info, Nearby share, and Direct share and only show apps of your choosing in the sharing window.”

The update to Home Up is incredibly useful for a few reasons. If you have a lot of apps installed, scrolling through the old share window could be exhausting. By being able to pick and choose what apps show up in the share sheet, the process is far more streamlined. Samsung also includes a toggle that will add an icon to reveal hidden apps, so you can look through your entire app library on those rare occasions.

Users can also choose individual targets from their favorite apps. If you like sharing content on Instagram, you can share directly to your Feed, Stories, or Direct. Small changes like this really improve the experience, cutting down on the time you’d have to manually do everything yourself.

The Home Up app update is available in the Galaxy Store via Good Lock. It’s compatible with all Samsung devices running One UI 2.5. If you’re unfamiliar with Samsung’s Good Lock, it’s a set of tools that allows users to customize their Galaxy device. It features a ton of different modules — too many to list here — so if you own a Galaxy phone, it’s well worth checking out.
