Highlight option no longer available since upgrade to android 14

Dear Samsung Team,

I am writing to you today to express my concern about the missing feature "Highlight" button in the Gallery app on the S23 Ultra and S24 Ultra devices. The feature in question allows users to select multiple photos and videos and automatically generate an animated video with adjustable length. This feature was present in the S23 Ultra when it was first released but was removed with the One UI 6.0 update in November. It is also missing from the new S24 Ultra.

As an S23 Ultra user who recently upgraded to the S24 Ultra, I am disappointed that this feature is no longer available. I used it frequently to quickly and easily create animated stories. The absence of this feature is particularly concerning given that the S24 Ultra boasts an improved AI. It seems counterintuitive that a feature that was present in the previous model with less advanced AI capabilities would be removed in the newer model with more advanced AI capabilities.

I kindly request that Samsung reconsider the removal of this feature and reinstate it in a future software update. It is a valuable tool for users who want to create engaging content without spending a lot of time editing.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.




In addition, I have attached a video that was automatically generated using that Highlight feature that was previously available on the S23 Ultra I think under One Ui 5.1 tgat was removed on One UI 6.0.

It's been renamed to Create+. After you select multiple AV media the Create+ button will show up. Hit that and you get the same thing. Uhm, I'm still doing this on an S23 Ultra because - delayed shenanigans courtesy of Samsung logistics.

Regrettably, the only other comparable option currently available is the Movie function under Create+. However, it generates a subpar video that requires manual editing, unlike the previous Highlight feature, which conveniently automated the process.

Aaah, I see. May have been moved to another sub App like Studio.

The current movie option in the screenshot directs users to the Studio app, which lacks the automation features previously available. While the introduction of the Studio app was intended to enhance functionality, the removal of the highlight feature has diminished its usefulness, particularly for users who rely on automation for video editing.

Interesting. There has to be a better replacement implementation. I need my S24 Ultra now 😅.
Galaxy S
I certainly hope so. I have updated my post to include a sample video that was quickly generated using the aforementioned feature that was removed under One UI 6.0 last October/November when I upgraded my S23U from One UI 5.1 to One UI 6.0
