Samsung adds new foldable features to its older Z Fold and Z Flip phones

Samsung’s new Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 phones add a bunch of clever new features designed for foldable phones as part of its One UI 3.1.1 update, but if you already own the original Galaxy Fold, you’ll still be able to get some new additions without shelling for a new phone. Available on all five foldable models is the new Drag and Split feature, which allows you to tap and drag on a link to open it side by side with the original webpage or message. Samsung’s larger Fold models will also be getting the adjustable app windows for its multitasking mode, allowing you to adjust the height and width of the individual apps when you have multiple apps open at once. The older models will also get the automatically rotating app function, custom aspect ratios, and a newly added split view for messaging apps. Lastly, for both the Z Fold 2 and the earlier Z Flips, Samsung is adding the option to force apps to use its “Flex mode” that puts video content on one half of a folded display, with playback controls on the other.
