After Google, Samsung is also working on an AirDrop rival called Quick Share for its Galaxy phones, according to XDA Developers. The publication was able to find the copy of the feature’s APK from a source that reportedly has a Galaxy S20+ 5G. So, it is expected that the Quick Share might launch with Samsung’s next flagships.
Just like AirDrop, Quick Share will enable an easy way to transfer files between two Galaxy phones. It will also let you choose whether you want to share stuff with your contacts only or with anyone nearby you.
In addition to that, you will also be able to use Quick Share to stream files to supported SmartThings devices. To do so, it first has to temporarily upload files to Samsung Cloud and then stream them to a SmartThings device. However, this feature is limited to that of 1GB per send for a total of up to 2GB per day.
On the other hand, we have recently seen Google’s Nearby Sharing in action between Google Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 4. Android now completes the initial handshake between two devices through Bluetooth rather than NFC. This will let you make your phones apart from each other. There are many new advanced features on the new Nearby Sharing app which we will get a clear look at its launch.
Since Samsung has yet to officially announce the feature, it’s still unclear if it will also make its way to older phones. We might get more details over that on Feb 11 when the company will be taking its Galaxy UnPacked event.
