- Samsung Flow app support is coming to more Galaxy smartphones
- Enables unlocking Windows 10 devices using phone’s fingerprint scanner
- Samsung Flow allows users to transfer files between devices as well
Just last week, Samsung revealed in response to a user query that the company is planning to bring Samsung Flow app to all Windows 10 PCs with next major update. Now, the South Korean company has officially announced that the Samsung Flow’s upcoming update, slated for April, will expand its compatibility to more Galaxy smartphones and Windows 10 devices.
Notably, as of now, the Samsung Flow app is only compatible with Galaxy S6 smartphone and newer devices, featuring fingerprint scanners.
With Samsung Flow app, users will be able to unlock their Windows 10 devices with the fingerprint scanner on their phones. Apart from the unlocking feature, the app will also allow users to act upon their notifications right from their Windows 10 PC or tablet. Samsung Flow, which works on similar lines as Apple’s Continuity feature, further lets users resume their browsing sessions from one device on another and allows for easy transfer of files between the devices.
“Users can share photos, videos and hefty documents cord and hassle free, and pause and continue browsing sessions on whichever device is more convenient. Additionally, when Wi-Fi is spotty, the app allows you to seamlessly connect your tablet to your phone’s mobile hotspot, so you’ll never be out of the loop,” the company said in its blog post.
This feature will be available for devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later and Windows 10 devices with Creators Update, which is expected to be rolled out in April. The Samsung Flow app comes preloaded on Samsung’s newly unveiled Galaxy Book and Galaxy Tab S3 tablets.
