The edge screen is a customizable feature that consists of the edge panel and edge lighting. You can make it your own and have the information or actions you want available with just a swipe and a tap.
The Apps edge, located within the edge panel, displays your five most frequently used apps for you to access at a moment’s notice. You’re also able to customize it, adding apps that you want to launch easily or deleting the apps you don’t use.
The edge panel works when the device is in standby mode. Slide your finger along the edge when the display is in standby mode to view the information you need, including news updates and the weather forecast.
When faced down, the edge lighting feature lights up the edge screen when you receive calls or notifications. You can color code up to five contacts that will appear in their respective colors when they get in touch, while all other calls or notifications will be shown in neutral bright light.
From the edge screen you can also access and set up App Pair, which allows you to open two apps at the same time. This is beneficial if you find you use two apps together frequently. App Pair is only available on Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9.
Dual edge is available on Galaxy Note9, S9, S9+, Note8, S8, S8+, S7 edge, S6 edge+, and S6 edge.
