Yesterday, I noticed a new UI screen for the smart home devices. It had a drop down on the top left to chose between Google Home and smart things and whatever devices are registered under that specific smart home app.

I opened this screen unknowingly and would love to know how to get to this again. 

I'm on S22 Ultra. Screenshot attached in comments.

It's called the devices panel, to reach it
1.Swipe down from the top of your screen
2. Swipe down again (to expand the panel)
3. Tap on the button labeled " Device control" (screenshot attached)

You can also move this button to show up on the first swipe by
1. expanding the panel
2. Tapping on the ... (Top right next to settings)
3. tapping quick panel layout
4. Tapping 'Device control and media output buttons"
5. Set to " show always"

Hope this helps 🙂Screenshot_20220904_115339_17223_1662310419.png

That's not the smart things app.

It's not Google Home either so it must be one of your added Smart apps.  Looks pretty close to my SmartThings app.   I've got an app for every different brand of smart device, you might also.

Ya, none of the Smart apps, when I looked at the app info all it said was Android 12.0. And it did include option to switch right there between Google home and smart things. So thinking it's part of the Android.
Would love if some could identify it and how to get to it.

Thank You so much. Now I feel dumb. I already have it enabled to use the media contol and I use it regularly. But never bothered to look next to it.
