Travel Just Got a Whole Lot Smarter, Thanks to Samsung Galaxy S24

January 24, 2024

Traveling is often filled with unexpected challenges and complexities, but it just got easier. Samsung Galaxy S24 series, powered by Galaxy AI, is a personal travel guide in your pocket making the experience smoother and more accessible than ever.

Considering a weekend in Paris? Thanks to the 2024 Summer Olympics, that will be even more popular this year, making it a more challenging destination. Here are all the ways in which Galaxy AI can ease the journey at step, from planning and communicating better to discovering cultures and creating great memories.

THREE MONTHS OUT: You build an (intelligent) three-day itinerary.
AI can help eliminate travel indecision and answer the question, Where should I go?

As you scroll through social media, for example, a photo highlighting an exhibition at Paris’ Musée d’Orsay grabs your attention. Rather than switching apps to learn more, you use Galaxy S24’s Circle to Search with Google feature (available January 31), which lets you act on inspiration the moment it strikes.

You press and hold the Home button to activate the feature. The new experience, which brings Google’s latest AI capabilities to Galaxy users, allows you to search what’s displayed on your screen, including images, videos or text.1 With your finger or Samsung S Pen, you can simply draw a circle around what you’re curious about — in this case, a social media post — and Circle to Search quickly pulls up relevant information, such as details about the exhibition.

For certain searches, this feature also allows you to get AI-powered overviews so you can more easily understand concepts, ideas or topics from helpful information pulled together from across the web. In this way, well ahead of your travels, AI adds a new dimension of preparation, helping you follow your curiosity with confidence.

On Galaxy S24, Circle to Search with Google lets you follow your inspirations directly and intuitively.

DAY ONE: You make connections across language barriers, thanks to your personal pocket translator.
Settling into your hostel, you’re keen to meet people and get all the hot tips on where to eat and what to see. But while travel is an exciting experience, it can be overwhelming if you don’t speak the language. In the hostel’s lounge area, you use Galaxy S24’s Interpreter feature to sidestep the language differences and converse with your fellow travelers in real time and in person, asking them for site-seeing recommendations with a local spin. On one side of the screen is the translated audio text of the person you’re speaking to, and on the other side is your part of the conversation translated for them.

Having made plans to meet up with your new companions later for dinner by the Seine, you use Chat Assist’s Message Translate feature to stay in touch throughout the day and time your rendezvous perfectly. By combining Message Translate with Chat Assist’s Writing Style tool, you can automatically adjust your messages to make sure you’re using a friendly tone instead of an unintentionally stilted, formal one.

Thanks to mobile AI, you can make travel a more social experience, forging meaningful connections across language barriers in the moment – voilà!

Say au revoir to language barriers. Interpreter's live translation makes it easy to talk to someone in another language.

DAY TWO: You explore the local food and culture, powered by your own digital travel agent.
Even the best planned vacations encounter hiccups, but with mobile AI, you’re prepared.

If you realize you booked your exhibition tickets at the Musée d’Orsay for the wrong day, for example, you can call to the ticket office with the peace of mind of knowing you don’t need to speak French.

Supported in 13 languages at launch2, Live Translate takes the stress out of problem-solving in a different language. Galaxy S24 is the first phone to offer real-time, two-way call translation within its native call app. When you phone the museum, the call app offers you an option to launch Live Translate, which provides both text and audio translations instantly.

The feature also works for the person on the other end of the line, regardless of whether they’re using a Galaxy device, allowing you to rebook your ticket as easily as you would at home and head out for a day full of art and culture.

DAY THREE: As your trip comes to a close, your AI-powered phone helps you fine-tune your holiday pics.
Before long, you’re having one last pain au chocolat in a boulangerie at Charles de Gaulle Airport, reflecting on your all-too-brief weekend in the City of Lights.

You want to send your hostel friends a group photo of you all in front of the Eiffel Tower, but the well-meaning passerby who took it got the composition slightly wrong. The Eiffel Tower is tilting at an angle, and your group is off to the right instead of in the center. With Generative Edit, you can go beyond the boundaries of photography and correct these issues in a couple of taps.

When you rotate the image to straighten up France’s most iconic structure, Generative Edit fills in the newly created blanks in the corners using intelligent outpainting technology to extend what’s already there, with no cropping required. As for you and your friends, simply select them with your finger, move them to the center and let Generative Edit’s inpainting capabilities fill in the blank space.

With Galaxy S24 at your side, mobile AI will change more than the logistics of travel. It will also change the traveler in profound ways, encouraging a sense of discovery, emboldening more meaningful interaction with locals and making the world feel grander, but at the same time, more accessible than ever.
