“AI AI AI!” This has been on the tips of everyone’s tongues for the past year, and many tech companies are pivoting hard towards the technology. During today’s Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung unveiled a slew of new AI features that are coming to its new Galaxy S24 phones. The company really leaned hard on AI technology this year, and it brought forth some interesting features.

There was a lot announced today, so it’s very easy to miss some of what the company introduced. However, fear not! Here’s a rundown of all of the AI features that were announced during the Samsung Unpacked event.

Here are all of the AI features that Samsung announced during Galaxy Unpacked

What’s neat about these features is that most of them will not be confined to the Ultra model. The majority of the features will be available across all three phones. So, there’s no forced exclusivity like we’re seeing with the Pixel 8 Pro.


Starting off, Samsung phones now have an on-device way of breaking down language barriers. There are now different ways for you to translate text and voices. For starters, if you’re having a text message conversation with someone, and you want to send text in a different language, you simply have to type your message, and then press the Galaxy AI button on the top of the keyboard. When you do that, you will see the Chat Translation button pop up. This will give you the option to instantly translate the text you’ve written into a selection of different languages.


You’ll also be able to Live Translate phone calls. So, when you are on a call with a person, you will hear a translated version of their voice in real time. In order to use this feature, you will need to use the Samsung Dialer app and be signed into your Samsung account.

If you’re having a face-to-face conversation with a person who speaks another language, Samsung has a neat AI tool for you. With Interpreter, you’ll be able to easily have a two-way conversation with another person from a different language. The app will open in a split-screen view with two microphone icons. One person will tap on the microphone icon and say what they want to say in their language. The tool will then translate what they say, and you will hear a virtual voice say it in the translated language. This way, you can have a back-and-forth conversation with another person.

Chat Assist

If you need help with perfecting your next text message, then Chat Assist is here for you. All you have to do is type your message and tap on the Galaxy AI button. After choosing the Writing Style option, the keyboard will analyze the message you just typed. Then, using generative AI, the phone will offer you some AI-generated versions of that message that all have different tones.


If you want your message to have a more casual tone, you can select that option. The same goes for if you want your message to have a more formal tone. Also, if you want to turn your message into a social media post, the phone will actually give you an example complete with hashtags and emojis.

Android Auto

When you’re driving, the last thing you want (or NEED) to do is stare at your phone to read a text message. Simply waiting until you get home before reading your text messages is the best option. However, if you really must read your text messages, then you should let Samsung do it for you.

A new feature will allow Android Auto to summarize incoming text messages for you. So, you’ll be able to have an idea of what the person is talking about without you having to take your eyes off of the road. Along with this, the feature will suggest replies for you to send. All of this is done through voice, so you won’t have to worry about distracting yourself to reply.

This is a much safer option than driving one-handed or taking your eyes off of the road.


Note Assist

If you’re a person who uses Samsung Notes, then you will definitely love this feature. Note Assist will use generative AI to organize your notes, summarize them, create note templates, and automatically create covers for them. This AI tool makes it much easier to keep your notes all organized and easy to manage.

If you’re taking voice notes in the app, then you will love the Transcript Assist feature. This will use AI speech-to-text technology to transcribe, summarize, and even translate recordings. Also, the AI technology will be able to differentiate between different speakers.

Circle To Search

This is one of the AI features that actually don’t use on-device AI. Rather, Samsung and Google are working in tandem to bring this feature to life. Called Circle To Search, this allows you to quickly do a Google Lens search on a particular item in a picture by simply circling it.

If you’re viewing the picture, summon the Google Assistant. Then, simply draw a circle around the item in the picture that you want to search. Google will work its magic and identify what’s in the image. From that point, it will give you search results based on what you circled.


This feature is not only useful, but it is also very fast. Depending on what items you circle, you will get your results within a fraction of a second.

AI camera features

Samsung always brings some amazing camera improvements with its new phones, and this year is no different. This year, the company introduced the ProVisual Engine. This is a suite of AI power tools that transform the camera’s image-capturing abilities.

After you’ve captured your image, Samsung has a set of tools such as Galaxy AI Editing, Edit Suggestion, and Generative Edit. These are all tools that use generative AI to help you edit your shots to make them the best that they can possibly be. They will tweak and do deep edits to your images which would usually require multi-hundred-dollar photo editing software.

One thing to note is that these AI camera features are exclusive to the Ultra model of the Galaxy S24. All of the other features, however, will be available on the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+.
