Wireless Powershare is a very useful feature if you want to charge other devices, even if you forgot their chargers? With the new Wireless PowerShare feature on the Galaxy S20 devices, your phone can reverse wireless charge another phone, watch, or Galaxy Buds. All you need to do is place the two devices together.
How to use Wireless PowerShare to wirelessly charge devices with Samsung Galaxy S20:
Wireless PowerShare is very easy to use.
- First, confirm your compatible phone has at least a 30% charge.
- Swipe down from the top of your screen with two fingers to show the Quick Settings panel.
- Then tap the PowerShare icon.
- Next, place your devices back to back.
- You can also charge your Galaxy phone as it charges another device.
