verizon galaxy s3 update changelog

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 is the latest in the bunch to get a huge feature-packed upgrade. We’re looking at build VRBMD3, and in it are game changing features such as multi-window and multi-screen, features which will allow you to simultaneously use two apps side-by-side. It’s a feature other S3 owners, all Note 2 owners, and all Galaxy S4 owners have been enjoying for quite some time.

The update also includes Page Buddy, which will give you app suggestions whenever you do something like plug in headphones or connect a wireless speaker. Other big changes include better hotspot functionality, the ability to access the home screen without performing an unlock function when a Bluetooth headset is connected, an update Samsung Gallery, Auto Share Shot in S Beam, Samsung Smart Switch support for transferring files, contextual tags for videos and photos, Best Shot in camera, and a whole lot more.

You’ll want to view the PDF in full here, because there are a ton of changes and bug fixes that you’ll want to check out. The upgrade is about to be about 130 megabytes in size, so see if you can get on a WiFi network and charge your battery to at least 30-50% before checking for it in the settings menu. Full upgrade instructions can be had here.
