One UI 5.1 will skip Galaxy S23 Fast Pair feature for old Samsung devices

Samsung S23 February 2023 security update

Samsung is making new improvements to its Android 13-based One UI skin with the One UI 5.1 version. For the flagship Galaxy S23 series, the company will introduce Android’s Fast Pair feature with One UI 5.1, but unfortunately, it will not be a part of older Galaxy devices.

It is a well-known fact that the Galaxy S23 series will keep its steps on the user ground with One UI 5.1. Besides, the Korean tech maker will bring the 5.1 firmware edition to more gadgets as well. However, unlike Samsung Galaxy S23 models, there will be slight changes for the other devices.

Recently, the @SamsonUpdate shared that the Fast Pair feature will come with the Galaxy S23 series, but the company will not add this tweak to the One UI 5.1 for previous Galaxy devices.

This is so because the feature requires BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), and meant only for the Galaxy S23 series. Naturally, future Galaxy flagships such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 would come with an integrated Fast Pair feature.

One UI 5.1 brings Android’s Fast Pair-derived feature to the Galaxy S23’s Setup Wizard. Using it, you can transfer all necessary accounts by scanning a QR Code (such as Google and Samsung accounts) along with saved Wi-Fi passwords even without typing a single word from your old Galaxy or Android phone.
