Samsung Internet 10.2 stable brings back the Video Assistant feature
Samsung’s native web browser, called Samsung Internet, is one of the most feature-rich web browsers on Android. The Chromium-based browser includes handy features like an autoplay video blocker, smart anti-tracking, night mode, and more. The browser previously included a feature called Video Assistant, which allowed users to open videos in picture-in-picture mode, zoom in on videos, or change the brightness. This feature was first introduced in version 4.2 of the browser, but sadly it was removed in version 9. Thankfully, the Video Assistant feature made a comeback in version 10.2 beta last month and it’s finally rolling out to the stable version of the browser.
As per a recent post on Reddit, Samsung has now started rolling out version 10.2.00.53 of the Samsung Internet browser. The update brings back the Video Assistant feature, but this time it has a few new tricks up its sleeve. The Video Assistant in the latest update for the browser now gives you the ability to change the tab view, adds menu button customizations, and it even lets you choose which apps open video links. Here’s the official changelog for Samsung Internet v10.2.00.53:
- Video assistant
- Allowed apps
- Customize menu
- Tab manager renewal
- Bug fix and stabilization
