Samsung and Microsoft's efforts to form a joint Android/Windows ecosystem to rival that of Apple's has reached a potentially critical stage. The OEMs are working to bring Quick Share (an AirDrop counterpart found on Galaxy-series smartphones) to PCs. Samsung's Free service is also to arrive on Windows 10 soon, as is a new app called "O".

Samsung and Microsoft had announced a partnership with the aim of equalling Apple's smooth transition from iPhones to Macs and so on using Windows 10 PCs and Galaxy-series devices. Now, the latest result of this collaboration will reportedly take the form of a Quick Share port.

This Samsung feature allows 2 users with Galaxy phones or tablets to swap files easily using Wi-Fi Direct. Now, Microsoft has unveiled plans to bring it to Windows 10 devices. Therefore, file-sharing between such a PC and something like a Galaxy S21 (or a Tab S8 in the near future, perhaps) might improve in terms of convenience and speed soon.

Similarly, Microsoft reportedly plans to make Samsung Free available on Windows 10 soon. This feature, formerly known as Samsung Daily, aggregates news, game and TV Plus recommendations into one place within the UI. It is apparently to be joined by something much less familar: Samsung "O".

Whatever this app or service turns out to be, it looks like it will also require One UI 2 or above to get it working on a Samsung-compatible device. Then again, there is no word on which future Windows 10 update will add these new abilities.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
