Samsung Flow, that allows you to move your activities between devices, is now available on Google Play in Beta version. Samsung has first introduced Flow in September 2014 at its developer conference.
Samsung’s Flow app lets users shift their activities seamlessly between various Samsung devices just like Apple’s Continuity. The devices used may range from PCs, laptops and tablets to smartphones and even wristwatches. The main idea behind it is to have a single platform that enables users to transfer files and move between devices smoothly and easily without any interruption.
In today’s digital era, people have more than one devices and during the course of the day they are using different devices at different points of time. While performing a particular task on your smartphone, you may feel that a bigger screen would be better. In that case, you can use the Samsung Flow app to shift to a tablet and continue with the task from where you left off in the smartphone. Or if you start reading an article on your smartphone while commuting, you can pick up from where you left off on your tablet when you reach home.
You can use Samsung Flow to:
“• Transfer an activity to the right device for a task. Pick up right where you left off rather than starting from scratch on the new device.
• Defer an activity when the right device is not immediately at hand or there just isn’t enough time to finish up a task. Resume it when you’re ready.”
Flow works with existing applications through Android’s Share menu. Developers will be able to add Flow actions in their apps to allow smooth transitions between devices for a better user experience.
The Samsung Flow app in Beta version is currently available for free download in the US for following Samsung Android devices:
Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 4 edge and Galaxy Tab S.
