With the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung introduced a new sharing feature, Quick Share. The company says you can “Share everything with your friends instantly.”
The Galaxy S20’s Quick Share lets users share files with up to 5 friends at once with no device pairing required. Samsung’s Quick Share feature, in fact, has a benefit over Apple’s AirDrop, which only works for one recipient at a time.
Currently, this feature is limited to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra but Samsung says support for other devices coming soon.
The maximum file size is up to 1GB and it comes with a 2GB per day cap. According to Samsung, Quick Share will show you “which of your contacts is nearby” and allow users to share items to “up to five friends” simultaneously.
How to use Samsung Quick Share feature:
On your device, go to the Quick Settings menu and now a long tap on the Quick Share icon. You can choose who may share files with you.

1. Open Gallery.
