Its Together features lets you challenge your friends to walking competitions. Or, you can join Global challenges and participate in different workout contests with people all over the world. With the Together feature in Samsung Health, you can join in on the action.
Set up the Together feature
Before you can start having fun with your gym buddies, you will need to set up the Together feature.
On your phone, navigate to and open Samsung Health, and then tap the Together tab. Tap Start and allow the permissions. Once it's all set up, you can add friends by finding them through the Friends page.
Add or invite friends to Samsung Health
Maybe you want to challenge some buddies to a little friendly competition. Luckily, as long as you've set up Together, you can add friends whether they are hardcore Samsung Health users or have never even used it!
Add friends who use Samsung Health
First, open the Samsung Health app, and then tap the Together tab. Tap Friends, and then select your desired method to add a friend: ID, QR code, or Recommended.
ID lets you search for friends using their Samsung account. QR code lets you add a friend by scanning their Samsung Health QR code. Recommended shows people in your contacts that are using Samsung Health.
Once you've chosen a method, follow the on-screen prompts to add a friend.
Invite friends who don't use Samsung Health
Navigate to and open Samsung Health, and then tap the Together tab. Tap Friends, and then tap More Options on the Friends screen. Tap Invite friends and then tap Share. From there, you can send the link to them through text or social media.
If they do have Samsung Health downloaded, the link will open the app and take them to the Together tab. If they don't have the app installed, the link will send them to the Samsung Health page on Play Store or the App Store.
