The One UI Watch 5 update for Wear OS Galaxy smartwatches has brought an exciting change to Theater Mode, making it more versatile and user-friendly. In the past, you could only activate Theater Mode from your smartwatch, but with the latest update, Samsung has extended its functionality to work seamlessly across all your Galaxy devices, including your smartwatch, smartphone, or tablet. This new feature is similar to Sleep Mode and ensures your devices remain discreet when you need them to.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you enable Theater Mode on your smartwatch running One UI Watch 5:
Access quick toggle area
Start by swiping down on your undefined‘s watch face from the top. This will open the quick toggle area.
In the quick toggle area, tap on the “Modes” option. You’ll find this option in the list of toggles.
Within the Modes menu, locate and select Theater mode. At this point, you’ll be prompted to continue the setup on your smartphone.
Setup on your smartphone
Switch to your connected smartphone and tap Start to initiate the setup process.
You can now choose the duration for which you want Theater Mode to stay active. Select your preferred duration and tap Next to proceed.
Customise your Theater Mode experience by adjusting settings for Do Not Disturb, dark mode, sound mode, and Always on Display to your liking.
Once you’ve configured all the settings, tap Done to save your preferences.
It’s important to note that the settings you choose will apply to both your phone and your smartwatch. For instance, if you enable Do Not Disturb (DND) for Theater Mode, your connected smartphone will also enter DND mode when you activate Theater Mode on your smartwatch. The same rule applies to settings for Always on Display and sound preferences. This synchronisation ensures a consistent and convenient experience across your Galaxy devices.
The upgraded Theater Mode in One UI Watch 5 lets you control all your Galaxy devices easily. Activate it on your smartwatch and apply it to your smartphone and other devices in a few simple steps. This update enhances your digital experience for uninterrupted moments and greater convenience.
