Both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets have been lacking multi-user support since their release, but a software update should fix this issue in the coming weeks. Android 4.2 has allowed for multiple user profiles on a variety of devices for a while, but this will be the first time these two tablets will have access to that functionality, according to SamMobile. There is no sign whether this update will bring any other features to the Samsung tablets. A screenshot of the user profiles can be seen below, although SamMobile notes that the screen is from a test build of the firmware.
