What is S Finder on my Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 and how Do I use it?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

S Finder makes it easier to search for a wide variety of content on your device and the internet. You can enter keywords using your voice or the keyboard. To access S Finder open the Notification Panel by swiping your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom (this can be done within many applications, not just when on the Home screen) and then touch S Finder.
