Samsung may launch its own AirDrop version, likely to be named Quick Share
New Delhi : Upgrading its Galaxy smartphone segment, Samsung is likely to launch its own version of AirDrop with the name of Quick Share, reported XDA Developers.
The publication got its hands on a copy of the feature's APK from a source who reportedly has a Galaxy S20+ 5G, probably the official name of the upcoming phone. With the update Quick Share may launch with Samsung's next flagships.
Inspired from AirDrop, Quick Share will enable users to transfer files between two Galaxy phones. To make it a secure sharing app, the users will be able to choose whether to allow only the contacts to share files with or to allow everyone nearby to send multimedia files.
The users 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 - take note, though, that this feature seems to be limited to 1GB per send for a total of up to 2GB per day.
Samsung is yet to make an official announcement over Quick Share, so it is hard to say that if the services will be extended to the older devices as well. On February 11, Samsung will be unveiling its two flagship devices and their features.
