    Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Update

    I don't think I've ever seen a beta test go to a 6th beta, but here we are with the S23 Ultra One UI 6/Android 14 beta test and it's buttery smooth.

    S23-Font used in text messages

    I just started using the S23. I was able to change the font style and size used on my phone but those changes didn't affect the font style in my text messages. Texts still show up in the default Samsung font. Any ideas on how to fix this?
