Phone and laptop sharing content through Samsung Flow

When you want to transfer files to your tablet, or see phone alerts while you're working on your PC, use Samsung Flow. It lets you conveniently connect your phone to a PC or tablet. You can transfer photos, screen mirror your phone, and much more. Soon, you won't be sure how you functioned without Flow.

Before getting started

Before you can enjoy seamless connectivity between your devices, take a second to get everything ready. Follow these tips before getting started:

  • Make sure the Samsung Flow app is installed on your phone and PC or tablet.

  • Make sure the Bluetooth drivers are up-to-date on your Windows PC, and turn on Bluetooth on both devices to pair them before using Samsung Flow. You can also connect via Wi-Fi if devices are on the same network.

Connect devices using Samsung Flow

Samsung Flow is completely wireless. That means no cables, cords, or anything like that. All you need is either a Bluetooth or internet connection!

Open the Samsung Flow app on your phone and your desired device (tablet or PC). Select START on your device, and then choose your phone from the list. If needed, select your desired connection method: either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi or LAN. A passcode will appear on both screens - confirm the passcodes match. Tap Done to complete the setup.

To connect another device to your PC or tablet, select More options, and then select Scan for devices. Next, choose your desired device from the list, and follow the on-screen prompts. You can repeat these steps to register additional devices. If you are having connection issues, select More options, select Settings, and then try adjusting the connection method.

Use Samsung Flow

Once your devices are successfully paired, you don't even have to open the Samsung Flow app on your phone to use it.

Just go on the connected PC or tablet to see notifications from your phone, transfer images or other files, and use the many other features that Samsung Flow has to offer.
