  • Samsung has released Good Lock 2021.
  • The update brings One UI 3.0 support, a visual refresh and updates to features like One Hand Operation Plus.
  • More modules have also received upgrades.

It wouldn’t be the start of the year for Samsung without a new version of Good Lock, and the company is clearly eager to deliver. Android Police notes that Samsung has released Good Lock 2021 weeks earlier than usual, and there are already hints that it could be a worthwhile upgrade for Galaxy phone power users.

To start, the central Good Lock app has received a visual refresh for 2021, with more animation and color. It’s not as information-dense as in 2020, but you might enjoy it more as you explore features. As you’d expect, the platform is ready for One UI 3.0.

At least some existing features have carried over, such as Clockface (for custom clock styles) and MultiStar (for multi-window enhancements).

It’s too soon to detail everything that’s new. However, there are already some noticeable upgrades. One Hand Operation Plus in Good Lock 2021 lets you set angle ranges for swipe gestures that perform custom actions, for example.

You’ll likely hear considerably more about Good Lock 2021 as users dive into its new features. If you can’t wait, though, you can try it yourself by downloading it from the Galaxy Store or directly from a site like APKMirror.
