Samsung will update Good Lock with One UI 2.0 (Android 10) support on February 3rd
Samsung released its Good Lock suite of customization tools all the way back in 2016. The app was designed to help users tweak the appearance of TouchWiz on Android Marshmallow. Alongside the release of Android Oreo, Samsung introduced a ton of new features in Good Lock and early last year in March, the app was updated to include support for devices running One UI. The app has since received a number of updates, including new modules to bring features like slim recent apps, quick tools/actions in one-hand operation, and more. Early last month, Samsung released a Theme Park module for the app which allows users to theme One UI. However, up until now, the app didn’t include support for One UI 2.0 based on Android 10. According to a recent update from the company, the app will finally be updated to support One UI 2.0 early next month.
As reported by Sammobile, a recent post on Samsung Korea’s official community forum reveals that the latest update for the app will be released on February 3. The update will bring design changes to the app which are in line with One UI 2.0’s aesthetic and it will include support for the system-wide dark mode introduced in Android 10. Samsung has also improved the core features of the app, with the Lockstar module getting the ability to automatically arrange elements to match the background using the power of AI. The update also brings a new notification detail view which was requested by many users.
