Samsung Galaxy S20: Does It Support Samsung’s Camera Controller Watch App? Get To Know

Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup of smartphones is extremely powerful. They’re the absolute pinnacle of what Samsung has to offer this year. All three phones are lightning-quick, thanks to powerful processors at their hearts. They all support 5G as well, making them future-proof.

Incredible Camera Setup

The most striking feature of all three of these devices, though, are their camera setups. The S20 features three rear cameras, a 12 MP wide-angle lens, a 12 MP ultra-wide lens and a 64 MP telephoto lens. Its big brother, the S20+ has the same rear camera array, but Samsung has thrown in a Depth Vision camera on top of that.


The S20 Ultra makes things even crazier. It features the same 12 MP ultra-wide lens, but its wide-angle camera comes in at a whopping 108 MP, with a 48 MP telephoto and DepthVision camera as well.

Added Support For Camera Controller

Such impressive specs lead to a lot of possibilities for photographers. Many professionals may want to use these devices as their primary equipment. Samsung, however, has other devices and peripherals that could greatly enhance the experience of taking pictures with these cameras.

That, of course, is the Galaxy Camera Controller app that works with Samsung’s Galaxy Watch lineup. Users who own a supported Galaxy smartphone and a Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active or Galaxy Watch Active 2 can use their smartwatch as a remote shutter and viewfinder.


Up until recently, the Galaxy S20 lineup of phones wasn’t part of these supported devices, though. It only worked with the S10 series, Note 10 series and Galaxy Fold. Now, however, the Camera Controller app works with all three S20 devices.

Many New Capabilities Samsung

Those of you who have both devices simply need to update the app to version 1.0.79. This will introduce to you a whole new range of features. The Galaxy Controller app is quite robust in its functionality.

Through it, you can use your Galaxy Watch to ensure that the framing of your shots is correct and remotely click pictures. You can also swipe up and down on the Watch screen to switch between the front and rear cameras. On top of that, you can also use the watch to swap between photo and video modes.

So, if you’re one of the people who own a Galaxy Watch and an S20, S20+ or S20 Ultra, you can now do a lot more with the camera step than you could before.
