Verizon has started to roll out a new update to the Samsung Galaxy S4. If you have a subscription with the carrier and use the S4 then you will be getting this OTA. Update VRUDMI1 was previously only available via Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant and is an upgrade over the previous version VRUAME7. The device however is still running on Android 4.2.2.
When Verizon made this latest update available no changelog was released making a lot of owners wonder what it contained. Today, we have the official changelog from Samsung detailing the improvements that it carries.
One prominent feature included with the VRUDMI1 update is the Optical Reader application that allows users to easily find business cards, contacts, and addresses with real-time recognition. Users will also be able to convert words into sentences from one language to another.
Aside from these new additional features improvements have been made on Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as several enhancement tweaks.
