Google did not want to miss the presentation of the new Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, Galaxy S22 Ultra and the new tablets of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 family to announce some of its novelties that will arrive during the launch of the new Samsung devices.

On the official Google blog, the company has reviewed some of the apps that come standard on the new Samsung Galaxy S22, such as Google Duo and Google Messages, where Google has advanced two new features that will come to these communication products.

Google Duo “Live Sharing”

Samsung and Google have teamed up to add the new “Live Sharing” feature to Duo, which, like Apple’s SharePlay, will allow its users to share their favorite apps live. Users will be able to use Google Duo video calls to brainstorm with friends via Jamboard, share ideas in Samsung Notes, photos in Gallery, watch videos on YouTube or find locations on Google Maps.

This novelty would be completely different from the “Share screen” function of Google Duo, since here only certain applications with their audio will be shared. What is unknown is the full list of apps that support this new feature.

Samsung reported that the Live Sharing feature will be available at the launch of Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Tab S8, and later this feature will be available on all Galaxy upgraded to Android 12. According to Engadget, the “Share live” would also reach the Google Pixel, and it is expected that it will eventually reach the rest of the devices as well.

Preview YouTube videos in Google Messages

The second novelty announced by Google, and which will affect all Android devices within a few weeks, is the preview of YouTube videos in its messaging application Google Messages. So in the near future, if someone shares a YouTube video link to us via SMS or RCS, in addition to previewing the video, we will be able to play it directly from Google Messages, without having to leave the application, just like it’s been happening for years on WhatsApp or Telegram.
