Samsung is working on its own implementation of AirDrop for its Galaxy Smartphones. The feature is QuickShare and has been noticed by peeps at XDA.
In a nutshell, QuickShare is a pretty simple ap that helps in transferring files between two Galaxy smartphones. Unfortunately, XDA cannot transfer files, because the direct APK file isn’t working as of now. The working is pretty simple though.
If you are near to a user who has the QuickShare enabled, you can share files like images and documents, etc. There will be two different options – Contacts Only, and everyone. As the name suggests, you can share files with the people in your contact list.
There is one handy feature which is not available in AirDrop – cloud functionality. The QuickShare will save your files that you are sharing or want to share on the cloud, temporarily. Then you can download these files and can stream over Smart Things with ease.
This feature is going to come with the release of S20-series. However, do note that XDA didn’t found any of the smartphones running One UI 1.0-One UI 2.0. That means any smartphone launching with One UI 2.1 will get this feature out of the box. But its on Samsung if they want to push this feature via Software Updates to other smartphones.
In fact, Google is also making an attempt to try this feature. Named Nearby Sharing as a part of Google Play Services, might launch sometime in the near future.
