Samsung Internet went live for the Galaxy Watch 4 series a couple of days ago, giving users a way to surf the internet from their wrist should they need it. Well, it turns out that Samsung’s browser app isn’t limited just to the Galaxy Watch 4 lineup. Other Wear OS smartwatches from different brands are now getting support for Samsung Internet, and they seemingly don’t need the latest Wear OS version for it.
We don’t have Wear OS smartwatches from other brands on our hands, but according to a recent Reddit post, Samsung Internet is now compatible with at least a few non-Samsung smartwatches that run Wear OS 2 or later. One of these wearables is the Oppo Watch, featured in the image below.
Other users also claim to have gotten Samsung Internet running on the Fossil Gen 5, the Casio WSD-F30, and even the Moto 360 3rd gen. In essence, any Wear OS (or later) smartwatch should now support Samsung Internet. The app can be installed through the Google Play Store.
As to whether or not you should be using Samsung Internet on Wear OS, well, it obviously doesn’t provide an ideal browsing experience given the dimensions of smartwatch displays, especially since it tends to load webpages in desktop mode. But it’s there if you’re looking for ways to browse the web from the wrist, and now, according to these Reddit users, it’s no longer exclusive to the Galaxy Watch 4 series.
Do you happen to own a Wear OS smartwatch that isn’t Samsung? Is Samsung Internet working for your device? How’s your experience been so far? Feel free to let us know in the comment section below.
