Use Wireless PowerShare on your Galaxy phone

S20 using wireless PowerShare to charge Galaxy buds

What if you could charge all your devices on the fly, even if you forgot their chargers? It's not too good to be true. With the new Wireless PowerShare feature, your phone can reverse wireless charge another phone, watch, or Galaxy Buds. All you need to do is place the two devices together.

Note: Wireless PowerShare works with most Qi-Compatible devices. This feature may not work with some cases, accessories, or other manufacturers' devices.

Share power and charge with Wireless PowerShare

When you're ready to perform a charging trick, here’s how to activate Wireless PowerShare and charge another device.

Wireless PowerShare is ridiculously easy to use. First, confirm your compatible phone has at least a 30 percent charge. Swipe down from the top of your screen with two fingers to show the Quick Settings panel, and then tap the PowerShare icon. Next, place your devices back to back. To stop charging, just separate the two devices from each other. The PowerShare feature will automatically turn off after 30 seconds when no other device is detected.

You can also charge your Galaxy phone as it charges another device. Simply connect your phone to the charging cable that came with it while using PowerShare to wirelessly charge your second device.

Note: Adjust the position of the devices to ensure their connection is good because the location of the wireless charging coil varies by device. Foldable devices will need to be closed. Using Wireless PowerShare may affect call reception or data services, depending on your network environment.
