During the Galaxy Note 10 series launch event, Samsung officially announced an agreement with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), with a focus on supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – or Global Goals. Now the partnership has moved to a new step.
Samsung launched the Global Goals app. Right now, the app is available only for the Android platform and comes preinstalled on the new Galaxy Note 10 series. According to the app’s description, it focuses on making users aware of the social problems experienced around the world. The app has four tabs: Updates, Goals, Donations, and Settings.
“Ten years ago, Samsung introduced its first Galaxy smartphone, and in the years that have followed, we have stayed dedicated to defying barriers to provide meaningful innovations that deliver value, convenience, and joy to our customers. On top of this, we have identified an opportunity to help raise awareness of the societal challenges we all face every day. This is why Samsung is expanding its commitment with the United Nations Development Programme to support the Sustainable Development Goals — also known as the Global Goals — to include Galaxy users.”
The Updates tab shows news about global goals, which are detailed in Goals. In Donations, you can send money to help any of the SDGs and see which ones you support. Lastly, the user can customize the look of the app in Settings.
Samsung Global Goals is available for download from the official Galaxy Store and Google Play Store.
