Galaxy Tab 3 may be getting multi-user support in a future update

Test firmware shows Samsung's take on multi-user support

Though the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 models — both the 8.0-inch version and the 10.1-incher — launched with Android 4.2.2, they did not have the multi-user account support that Google has added to tablets. If the test firmware that SamMobile has seen a peek of ends up getting released to the tablets, that looks like it's going to change.

There's no word on what other changes may be in any future update, or if it will involve any Android version bump.

Folks are pretty confident that we'll see this update in the near future. Multi-user support is a great feature to have on a tablet, and we hope Samsung has figured out a way to do it that fits their take on Android.

  • Man, samsung really can't design nice looking software. Even those faces look bad. Posted from the AC app
  • The tab 3 7" on at&t already has multiple user support. Posted via Android Central App
  • Really? Because i have the tab 3 (7 inch) and I don't even have 4.2. It comes with android 4.1. It isn't attached to a carrier (just Wi-Fi) but maybe its not yet available in my country. Posted via Android Central App
  • So what did "launching with 4.2" actually mean? I'm curious. Posted via Android Central App
  • Hopefully this happens. This is a big feature missing from Samsung. Posted via Android Central App on my Note 2!
  • I want a copy of that wallpaper, that looks so nice!
