Samsung has been quite solid with its software updates lately, particularly when it comes to flagship devices. Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ got updated to One UI 3.1 and Android 11 quite fast after the Galaxy S21 came out and now the Tab S7 gets one more important update.

Samsung has released its March 2021 security update for several devices, even though it’s still February. With this update the Tab S7 also gets some iPad-inspired functions. DeX gets improvements like improved stability and Dolby support. Samsung Daily gets replaced with Samsung Free, which is still a not so good aggregator. A new function is S-Pen to text, which feels like Scribble on iPad OS 14. It lets yo hand write text directly into a text field sans bringing up a keyboard.

So far users in Germany have been confirming this update. The full changelog for the Tab S7 series is found below:

  • Supports “S Pen to text” function.
  • Now you can directly input text to the input field with S Pen handwriting.
  • Dolby feature is supported in Dex mode.
