Sync Data with Samsung Cloud
Don't be late for that appointment; make sure your phone's data is up to date by using Samsung Cloud's sync feature. When you sync data, you're adding updated information to your phone and its apps. So, if you added a new event in Calendar to your phone, that event will appear on another device if it is signed into the same Samsung account. You can also back up and restore data.
Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Samsung Cloud may not be available depending on your country or carrier.
The Types of Data You Can Sync
You can move files over from your phone to your laptop by syncing them with Samsung Cloud. Soon, you’ll be up to date with your contacts, upcoming events on your calendar, and those new selfies you took.
The following data can be synced to your Samsung account:
Samsung Cloud Drive
Auto Sync Your Data
You use some apps more than others - no worries, you can customize which apps automatically sync and which ones don't.
From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch More Options, and then touch Sync settings. Touch the slider next to your desired apps to turn auto sync on or off for them.
Note: Content will not automatically sync if your cloud storage is full.
Sync Your Data Manually
If new data isn't showing up on your phone, you can manually sync everything right then and there. Here's how:
From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch More Options, and then touch Settings. Touch Sync Settings, and then select which apps you would like to sync. From there, touch More Options, and then touch Sync now.
You can also sync apps individually. For example, if you want to sync Gallery, navigate to Settings, and then search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch the Gallery card, and then touch Sync now.
Sync Using Wi-Fi or Mobile Data
By default, your apps will only sync to Samsung Cloud when your phone has a Wi-Fi connection. But you can make them automatically sync using mobile data, so you won't miss anything.
From Settings, search for and select Samsung Cloud. Touch your desired app (i.e. Gallery), touch Sync using, and then choose Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and mobile data.
Note: Data charges may apply if Wi-Fi and mobile data is selected.
