Is there any new function that allows you to create a legend for all subplots?

Actually, Matlab does support a global legend in recent releases.
Another answer on that same page provides a demonstration.

Hi. I find this post looking for the same. I found this and works fantastic. Almost 6 years and a pandemic later i hope this works for you. https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/387391-multiple-plots-with-same-legend#answer_309608
On this part you can put your list of string and thats it
legend('show')

This only shows object plotted on the current axes. For example, it doesn't work in this example below. However you can add a global legend by following one of the example in the other answer in the link you shared.
figure
subplot(211)
plot(rand(2,5))
subplot(212)
plot(rand(1,5))
legend('show')
