Samsung Introduced AirDrop-Like Quick Share For The Galaxy S20 Lineup

For now, only the S20 lineup phones have this feature. However, according to Samsung, Quick Share will be available on other devices soon

AirDrop has long been a privilege of iOS users only. However, it is no longer the case as Samsung has successfully created its own, which can be found on the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra.

The Korean tech giant called the feature Quick Share. It also said that the function allows users to share just about anything with your friends almost instantly.

Like AirDrop of Apple, Quick Share shows you all of your nearby contacts so that you can send files to them. Samsung’s file-sharing feature has the edge over Apple’s in the fact that it allows users to share files with up to five other users at the same time while Apple limits this feature to one friend only.

The first screenshot of Samsung’s Quick Share was made public by XDA Developers last month. From the image, we can see that the feature offers similar options to AirDrop. You can choose to receive files from your contacts only or from anyone with a compatible Galaxy phone.

For now, only the S20 lineup phones have this feature. However, according to Samsung, Quick Share will be available on other devices soon.

This is not the first time Samsung works on the idea of a device-to-device sharing. There is an earlier version called Direct Share which lets you beam content from your phone to a TV (manufactured by Samsung of course).

Google is also developing its own version of AirDrop called Nearby Sharing for Pixel smartphones. With Samsung and Google embracing the idea, Android users will now have hope that they can get their hands on this useful feature without stretching their budget for a premium iPhone.
