Share content on your phone with friends via Quick Connect

Easy content sharing with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

By Samsung Australia,  16.08.2016.

There are times when you see something online you want to share with a friend or family member, but you don’t want the entire ‘Twitter-verse’ or everyone on Facebook seeing what you shared.

With more people using the internet ‘on the go’ than ever before, Samsung’s Quick Connect is making it easier to enjoy and share content directly with family and friends.

Sharing isn't always easy

From letters to telegrams, telephone to the web, email, instant messaging and now social media, we've always looked for more inventive and fun ways to communicate with each other.

While the internet has given us more ways to reach a greater number of people, sharing content with them isn't always easy.

Emails don't always arrive instantaneously, and attachments are sometimes corrupt and can't be opened. While instant messages are not so instant when you have to attached images, video or audio.

Using Quick Connect

Simply swipe down from the top of the screen to the bottom in any menu or app, and the Galaxy S7's Quick Panel appears.

Choose Quick Connect, and it begins scanning for nearby phones, tablets, laptops or televisions to share content with. If the device you want to share with has Quick Connect turned on, and has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi active your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge will find it.

A list of phones, tablets, laptops and televisions you can share content with appears, whether it's your mate right next to you with another Galaxy S7, or your sister with her Galaxy tablet in the next room.

Next you select who you want to share with, and click 'Send Content.' Whether it's a hit song you just bought and want to share with your mate, or a hilarious cat video your sister just has to see, all the other person has to do is click 'Accept'.


Quick Connect User Interface

Fast, easy and fun

From letters, to photographs, home movies, to emails, we've always looked for ways to share the things that make us laugh or cry. Although sharing wasn't always easy in the past, Quick Connect on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have made it so quick and simple that friends and family will be connecting with you faster than ever before.

Quick Connect puts these hassles aside, and lets you share content with anyone close by who is also using a phone, tablet or laptop with Quick Connect.

With Quick Connect you don't have to fiddle about with your phone's Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other confusing network settings. Once you turn it on, it automatically looks for other phones, tablets or laptops to connect with, and the wireless networking technology it is using.
