New Downloadable Samsung Quick Share App
Quick Share, initially released as a built-in feature with the Samsung Galaxy S24 series, is a file-sharing utility designed to allow users to share files of various types without quality degradation or the need for compression, a common constraint in similar sharing services.
While Quick Share was originally available on recent Samsung devices running Android 10+ or One UI 2.0+, it is now accessible to other Samsung handsets through the Galaxy Store. Simply visit the Galaxy Store and download the app on any supporting device.
Users can leverage Samsung’s sharing feature to efficiently share single or multiple files from any app on their device, whether it’s a tablet, phone, laptop, or computer running Windows 10.
The latest Quick Share update introduces two significant improvements. Firstly, it increases the file size limit for sharing via QR code or with contacts from 3 GB to 5 GB, surpassing Bluetooth’s unofficial 100 MB limit.
This enhancement enables users to share larger files through the utility, facilitating the transfer of multiple files simultaneously without sacrificing quality through compression.
Integration with Google’s Nearby Share
The standout feature of the new Samsung Quick Share update is its integration with Google’s Nearby Share. As announced at CES 2024, Nearby Share and Quick Share merged under the “Quick Share” brand. This collaboration between Samsung and Google transforms the Quick Share app into a seamless cross-Android file transfer solution.
With the updated Quick Share app, users can now share files via Nearby Share on Samsung Galaxy devices, as demonstrated on the recently launched Galaxy S24 series. To utilize this feature, users need to log in with their Samsung and Google accounts, providing Android users with a convenient method to transfer files across devices, irrespective of the device’s manufacturer.
