New updates bring camera zoom control to Galaxy Watch5, 360 audio recording to Buds2 Pro
Last week, Samsung announced that it would release software updates that would bring 360-degree audio recording to the Galaxy Buds2 Pro and camera zoom capability to the Galaxy Watch5 and Watch4 series. Well, the rollout has started as the Galaxy Watch5 in the US has received a new software update with firmware version R900XXU1AWA3 which allows smartwatch users to control the camera zoom level of the connected smartphone through the camera controller on the laptop.
This can be done with a simple pinch of the watch face or by turning the rotating virtual bezel. However, this feature will only work with Galaxy smartphones, so you cannot use it if you have a phone from another brand.
The update for the Galaxy Buds2 Pro has firmware version R510XXU0AWA5, which brings 360 audio recording to TWS headphones. As the name suggests, this feature allows you to record 360° sound using the microphone of each earbud. However, this only works with Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4.
