What is Samsung Cloud?


Samsung Cloud allows you to backup, sync and restore content stored on your device.


You’ll never lose anything important to you and can seamlessly view photos across all devices.

If you replace your phone, you won’t lose any of your data because you can copy it across using Samsung Cloud.


Using Samsung cloud you can easily setup and manage your preference from one screen to backup and sync your data. You can then restore the data onto a new device so everything will be exactly as you left it.



Which devices have Samsung Cloud? I can't find it on my device.


Samsung Cloud was released in late 2016. It is being rolled out to compatible devices via software updates starting with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

If you do not yet have Samsung Cloud on your device, ensure that your device is set to download updates automatically, and you will receive it as soon as it is available for your model.
