Samsung to launch new Quick Share feature

Samsung are said to be working on a new sharing feature to rival Apple's AirDrop facility.

The mobile phone and technology giant are reportedly trialling Quick Share, which allows Samsung users to share all kinds of content with other Android devices, in what is similar to the AirDrop facility available on iPhone devices.

Writer Max Weinbach shared the news of Quick Share on XDA Developers, a community technology and development forum.

He wrote: "Quick Share is slated to be a pretty simple and tool for quickly sending files between two Galaxy phones. We were able to get the APK running on a few different Galaxy phones but we were unable to get two files to transfer between the devices. The APK was not meant for our test devices so it's not surprising it's not working."

It is not known when the new feature would be launched for certain but it is expected to be unveiled with the Galaxy S20+ at Samsung's Unpacked event on February 11.

And Weinbach has claimed that files as large as one gigabyte will be allowed, with a maximum daily transfer capacity of two gigabytes.

Weinbach added: "Quick Share is also the type of service that I'd imagine would be available on most older Samsung devices with a software update. Though its roll-out would be entirely on Samsung."
