In addition, the changelog also shows that the May 2021 update also improved the “camera” and “quick sharing” functions. After installing this OTA, Galaxy S20 series smartphone users can share files to other Android devices through “Quick Sharing” to get an enhanced experience.

At the same time, when switching from a specific operator to Verizon, Verizon also includes support for BYOD, commonly known as “bring your own device.” In addition, the largest network service provider in the United States also explained the BYOD function, which will be introduced below.
