Samsung Quick Connect and How to Use it

The latest Samsung devices (smartphones and tablets) have a feature called Quick Connect. You can use it to connect your Samsung device with any nearby devices that uses either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth protocols. The Quick Connect feature saves you from going through the clumsy pairing process. With Quick Connect you can share media between your phone and any other device that supports Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. For example, you can show pictures or videos from your phone on your Smart TV or play music on your wireless speakers.

Pairing two devices via Bluetooth may vary among various models. As a result it is not easy to connect with a device of your choice. You may have to look up the device manual or the Internet to find out how to go ahead with the pairing process. Samsung decided to find a way to remove all these hurdles and attempted to ensure that connecting to a device of your choice is a matter of seconds.
