Samsung Is Also Working On Their Own AirDrop-Like Feature Called Quick Share

Be able to share files instantly among Samsung Galaxy phones

As Android users, possibly the one feature we will all look at Apple enviously is the AirDrop feature that enables Apple users to share files within seconds. Currently, Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi have the Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance that's set to roll out in February, and now it looks like Samsung is looking into their own file sharing feature called Quick Share.

According to XDA Developers, Quick Share will allow files to be shared between Galaxy phones. The tech news site has also theorised that the feature will be supported by the upcoming Galaxy S20, which is expected to be unveiled on February 11 at its Unpacked event in San Francisco. If this is true, then Samsung must have been working on this for a while now, as we're only weeks away to the unveiling event.

There is one major difference though between Samsung and Apple's file sharing feature; the Quick Drop will have a cloud aspect, allowing files up to 1GB to be temporarily uploaded to the Samsung Cloud. Files can then be streamed to Samsung Smart Things devices or downloaded to another device, according to the report.

Samsung has yet to confirm and deny this, but we're really hoping this comes true and in time for the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked.
