Samsung is Making its Own Version of Apple AirDrop

Apple’s Airdrop releases its own versions, an feature which permits rapid file sharing between WiFi and Bluetooth devices. Google is ready to implement Fast Share, and Chinese smartphone manufacturers have formed a partnership to start their own business.

The tool — to be instead called 'Quick Share' — is expected to launch with the Galaxy S20+, which will likely be unveiled at Samsung's Unpacked event on February 11

Now Samsung has a similar feature in the works known as Fast Share that works on all smartphones in Samsung as a result of a specific report by XDA developers. Thanks to an APK with a few Galaxy phones, they were able to test this new feature.

Quick Share will allow instant file sharing with nearby devices with all Samsung phones and tablets. The only requirement is that both the phones need to be running Quick Share with their visibility on.

Two options will be open, including “Contacts only” and “All.” Contacts will only enable you to share files and media with other Samsung Social users in your contacts, while everyone can use the supported device in your area to share files with anyone.

Like Airdrop, however, Fast Sharing includes the ability to upload files to Samsung Cloud temporarily. You can import or stream these files to the devices of Samsung Smart Things locally. With a total limit of 2 GB per day, these files can be as large as 1 GB.

Quick Share is expected to roll out once the Samsung Galaxy S20 series goes official and older devices will get the feature as part of the One UI 2.1 update.
