Those were the days when we used to transfer photos, videos, music, and many other media files via Bluetooth, until someone invented File Sharing Apps like Xender, SHAREit, XShare, etc. These are the third-party applications that we need to download and install explicitly from Google Play or Galaxy Store. However, that time is also gone, nowadays, most folks prefer WhatsApp and other Messaging Apps to share Pictures, Videos, etc. But keep note that sharing your high-resolution images over WhatsApp could result in quality loss. And to overcome this, we’ve got the best option to share Images, Videos, and Other Media Files from Samsung Phone to any other Samsung Phone/Tablet.
Like any other brand, Samsung is pushing hard to keep the phones up to date, so that we don’t need to get hands-on with any third-party apps for basics, and daily wear and tear. Apart from Android updates, Samsung Team is focused on improving Stock Features and Applications like anything.
- 1 What is Quick Share in Samsung and How to Quick Share on Samsung?
With Android 10 and One UI 2.0, Samsung released its native quick sharing service; Quick Share which allows us to send Images, Videos, and Files to anyone who has Quick Share enabled and is in the range to accept the shared media. You don’t need to do any uphill battle to share the best-est of your photos with the people who are with you at the moment.
The best part is you don’t need to do any additional setup, just find the photos and videos that you wish to share and in two-three taps, the Photo and Videos will be transferred to the receiver’s phone upon Accepting the files.
By default, Quick Share comes enabled, and there’s no need to go anywhere to send files over Quick Share. However, to receive files, there are some settings that you might need to check.
Starting with the basics, in this section, we’ll show you how to Quick Share on Samsung Phone/Tablet to other Samsung Phone/Tablet.
- Go to the Gallery App in your phone.
- Navigate to the Image/Video that you wish to share over Quick Share.
- Long press the Image/Videos and tap on the Share icon.
- Find and select Quick Share. There you can also choose to Remove location data or keep, as per your preference.
- Select the device that appears under “Share to nearby Galaxy devices” to initiate Quick Share.
- Likewise, you can share any File via Quick Share.
There’s a small catch, to share data using Quick Share, we don’t need any additional procedure to follow, however, Samsung allows us to control whether we want to receive files from other Samsung phone via Quick Share or not. Otherwise, anyone can sent transfer request and might annoy you.
- Open the Settings app.
- Swipe down to Advanced features.
- Select Quick Share.
- Under Nearby sharing, select from NO ONE, CONTACTS ONLY or ANYONE NEARBY. To receive the files via Quick Share, you can choose between Contacts Only or Anyone Nearby.
Quick Share failed? Quick Share not working? Ensure both the phones, Sender’s and Receiver’s Phone are updated with Android 10 and One UI 2.0 or Newer. Also, check the Receiver’s Quick Share Settings as mentioned above, it is to be set as Contacts Only or Anyone Nearby to receive files via Quick Share.
Well, unfortunately, Quick Share is Samsung’s Stock feature that is only limited to Samsung Phones and Tablets, and with one condition, the device must be running Android 10 and One UI 2.0 or Newer. And of course, Samsung will keep this feature to its own ecosystem, plus, Apple might not entertain it. Therefore, if you’re wondering how to transfer photos and videos from Samsung to iPhone, try searching for third-party applications or using Bluetooth.
