Point and share files with your Galaxy Note20 5G
Tired of sending an endless chain of emails or texts to your friends, just so they can see your photos and other files? What if you could send files directly to other compatible phones – no email or messages required? You're in luck because you can do this with the new Nearby Share feature on the Galaxy Note20 5G and Note20 Ultra 5G. However, there's also Quick Share which is similar and can be used with other Galaxy phone models.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries. To transfer files to a non-Samsung phone, the device needs to have Nearby Share or be compatible with Ultra-wideband technology.
Trying to share those awesome vacation photos with your friends? Use Quick Share to quickly and easily distribute your photography.
If someone is sending something to you using Quick Share, you will receive a notification on your phone. Tap the notification to view the file. Remember, you need to have Quick Share turned on in order to receive files through this feature.
Want to impress someone with your amazing photography? You can impress them even more by sending them your pictures wirelessly via Nearby Share. Before starting, make sure that your Location is turned on and that you are signed into your Google account.
Hold your phone and the other device close together; make sure both devices are unlocked. The other device will appear under “Looking for nearby devices”.
You’ll get a message that says “Sending.” When the transfer is successful, “Sent” will appear on your phone.
