Galaxy Watch 4 gets Samsung's internet browser if you don't mind squinting

You can now access the web right from your smartwatch, albeit on a tiny screen.

What you need to know

  • Samsung's internet browser is now available on the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic.
  • The browser offers some handy featues for browsing on a small screen such as zooming in and swipe gestures.
  • You can download the browser from the Play Store for Wear OS.

Samsung has finally rolled out its internet browser to the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic, allowing you to browse the internet straight from some of the best Android smartwatches.

According to TizenHelp, the browser includes a slew of features designed to make browsing on a small screen easier, such as voice input and swipe gestures. You can also zoom in on a page to see what you're reading more clearly.

For uninterrupted browsing, you can open your current page on a paired smartphone through the "Show on Phone" option. However, you shouldn't expect the same browsing experience as you would with the app's smartphone version. For example, the browser loads the desktop version of a webpage rather than the smartwatch-optimized version.

That said, it's one of the best Tizen apps that Samsung made available for its latest smartwatches. Recently, the tech giant also released the PPT Controller app to Galaxy Watch 4, allowing students and business users to control a PowerPoint presentation with their smartwatch.

However, it's worth mentioning that Samsung's internet browser is not exclusive to its own smartwatches. Other Wear OS watches like the TicWatch E3 and Fossil Gen 5 also support the app.

While the browser on a smartwatch may not be as intuitive as it is on a smartphone, it still provides a convenient option for browsing the internet on the go.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
