Samsung phones have a very useful feature called Quick Share that allows you to send and receive files quickly. Among Galaxy devices, it is the fastest file transfer tool available, enabling you to send large video files in seconds.

In this article, we’ll learn what Quick Share is, how it works, its features, what you can send with it, and how to use it to share files between friends and family.

What is Quick Share? how does it work?

Quick Share is a file-sharing app developed by Samsung, and it’s the best way to share files between Galaxy devices, including phones, tablets, laptops, and smartwatches. You can use Quick Share to send almost any type of file, including photos, videos, documents, songs, audio recordings, APK files, and more.

Files shared via Quick Share have an expiration date of two days; Then, recipients can’t download your file. This is done to prevent unwanted parties from copying your file.

Although Quick Share works best between Samsung Galaxy devices, you can use it to send files to non-Samsung Android phones as well, although the process isn’t as smooth and the transfers aren’t as fast. We’ll show you how it works.

Quick Share comes pre-installed on your Samsung phone, which means you don’t need to download it separately from the Galaxy Store. To access Quick Share, simply go to Settings > Connected devices > Quick Share.

Plus, Quick Share doesn’t harm the quality of your photos and videos during file transfers. For example, sharing a picture on WhatsApp will reduce its resolution to reduce its file size, which means the recipient will not be able to see it clearly.

On Instant Sharing, this is not an issue as all files shared are sent in their original quality. You can send up to 1GB of content at a time, and up to 5GB of content each day. The maximum limit may vary depending on your region.

How to send and receive files with Quick Share

Before sending and receiving files via Quick Share on Samsung, make sure the feature is actually turned on. To do this, go to Settings > Connected devices > Quick Share > Who can share with you and select Anyone Nearby. You can also find and enable Quick Share in the Quick Settings panel on your Samsung phone.

If the recipient has a Samsung phone and is nearby, their device will appear in the menu. Tap it, and ask the recipient to accept the file on their device. This method works fastest.

Alternatively, you can choose from three options: copy a share link, share the link within an app, or create a QR code that the recipient can scan to receive your file. If you need help with this, see How to scan QR codes on Samsung.

Choose an option to start uploading your files to Samsung Cloud. Once the file is uploaded, the recipient can download it using your link or QR code. If the recipient has a non-Samsung phone, they will be redirected to the Samsung Cloud website where they can download your file.

Once you have successfully shared your file, you can view its details by going to Settings > Connected devices > Quick Share > Link sharing history. Here, tap a shared item to see its file size, sent date, and expiration date.

As well as Quick Share, you’ll also want to look at other really useful features Samsung has come up with to get the most out of your phone.
