How does Samsung Quick Connect Work?

Technically speaking, Quick Connect is an app that allows you to connect your phone to a range of Wifi devices that support different protocols — including Wifi Direct and Miracast — to display photographs, video, or audio.

That’s really wonderful because when you connect Quick you’re likely to see a list of popular home entertainment gear that can connect—like Xbox One, Chromecast, smart TVs, Miracast dongles, and set-top boxes.

If you have another modern Samsung phone or tablet, Quick Connect can also be used to exchange photographs, videos, audio, calendar events, locations, contacts, and files between them.

Surprisingly, in Quick Connect, Samsung doesn’t even favor its own devices—you may choose which device works best for you.

Simply open Quick connect and choose where to share—you may then choose from photographs, movies, or audio stored on the device to transfer.

You can select one or more items, and while there’s no slideshow-style display, you can opt to navigate through them at your own pace.

You can hit the main button and use the other android device for other things while the devices are still linked – just tap the persistent notice to connect back to Quick.

You definitely have at least one item that can receive via Quick Connect from your Samsung Galaxy device and didn’t realize it – and now that you know how simple (and handy) it is, you might test it out.

Quick connect can be found in one of four places, depending on where you purchased your Samsung Galaxy device.

1. When you pull down the notification shade on most Samsung Galaxy models, you’ll notice a large Fast connect button, but if it’s not there (count yourself lucky), you can find it in the quick settings section by hitting “edit” at the top of the notification shade and toggling or moving it.

2. When sharing photographs, video, or music, you’ll also see Samsung Quick connect as an option in the Share menu.

3. In any event, you’ll be sent to a very basic open Quick connect page that will tell you basically what it can do and then ask you whether you want your phone to be visible all of the time or only when the app is turned on – we suggest the latter.

4. If the other device doesn’t support Quick connect, you’ll have to manually turn on Bluetooth or WiFi Direct.

If the other device supports Samsung Quick connect, all you have to do now is turn it on.

Open Quick connect will automatically enable the essential settings for you.

That’s it; there’s nothing further to set up you can see why this is a little perplexing.

YES! It’s hard to find and do the actual procedure but trust me, it’s worth it!
