Hidden Galaxy S6 features include call recording, scheduled messaging, VoLTE
Samsung has baked a long list of hidden features into its latest version of TouchWiz that aren’t available by default on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge — such as call recording, Wi-Fi calling, the ability to schedule text messages, and support for VoLTE.
But if you’ve already rooted your handset, you can enable them manually.
This is the list of hidden features, which was discovered by Tiboric, a senior member of the XDA Developers forum:
- Wi-Fi calling
- Native voice call recording
- Shutter sound switch in Camera app
- Use camera during calls
- Manual rotation option in Gallery app
- Continuous music while using Camera app
- Scheduled text messages in Messaging app
- Exit buttons in default browser
- 2nd symbol keys on stock Samsung keyboard
- VoLTE support
- Hide NFC icon in status bar
- Sort app drawer alphabetically
Some of these features were enabled in previous versions of TouchWiz — like the ability to sort the app drawer alphabetically — and others would be great additions, so it’s not totally clear why Samsung hasn’t activated them on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.
But if you have root access on your device, you can enable them manually. You’ll need to download a root explorer and text editor, then insert a line of code for each feature into a system XML file. It might sound complicated, but it’s not really.
You’ll find all of the code you need along with more detailed instructions in the original XDA thread via the source link below. Just remember that without root access, it won’t work.
