Samsung has just announced that the company will be rolling out a brand new weather experience for the Galaxy Note 10 users. The new weather experience will include features like weather alerts and radar maps. The weather data will be provided by The Weather Channel which has been providing data to the other Samsung phones as well.
Samsung is committed to delivering meaningful innovation to our users. Our partnership with The Weather Channel is another example of our ongoing efforts to deliver seamless services that are widely accessible and simplify the lives of our Galaxy device owners. Together with The Weather Channel, we’re offering people more information and making weather checks on Galaxy Note10 easier, faster and more essential.
– Yongje Kim, Executive Vice President of Service Business Office, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics
Samsung said the data will include government-issued weather alerts, radar maps, and weather video clips from The Weather Channel’s editorial team. Samsung Weather will also allow users to connect directly to The Weather Channel’s website, weather.com, to view real-time radar maps, giving users access to high-resolution, past-to-future radar data and hyperlocal current weather.
Samsung has been able to do this, thanks to an extended partnership with The Weather Channel, which is a subsidiary of IBM. Samsung also noted that The Weather Channel has been providing data for Samsung devices since the Galaxy S8 and continues to be the default weather data provider on select Samsung smartphones.
Samsung didn’t, however, mention if the new weather experience has been restricted to the Galaxy Note 10 or if it will be arriving on older Samsung devices via an update later.
