While transfering Sound & Shot photos from Galaxy S3 to other devices sound isn't heard?

Last Update Date : Aug 29. 2018

Sound & Shot in Samsung Galaxy S3 ( GT-I9300 ) JB OS 4.3, allows users to record up to nine seconds of audio with a still image. So, you can remember what was said, played, and heard, not just what it looked like. It adds another layer of excitement to help you relive and share every moment of each picture much more vividly.




When you transfer Sound & Shot files to other device (non Sound & shot enabled device), the sound will not be played. Although you can transfer between Sound & shotenabled devices, the original photo must be transferred without editing to play the sound which is included in Sound & shot photo. So when you transfer Sound & shot photo, please use Bluetooth, NFC or Wi-Fi direct.







 Via Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth or NFC

 Transferred with the sound

 The original file is not edited

 Via MMS, ChatOn attachment

 Transferred without the sound

 The original file is edited and only images are transferred

 Via ChatOn but with sharing function in Gallery

 Transferred with the sound but must be saved in the storage first

 The sound is not played in ChatOn viewer. You first save the file in the device storage, then sound will be played.
