Samsung Flow Will Be Taking On Apple Continuity


Even though Apple has tapped Samsung to mass produce the Cupertino tech giant’s A9 SoCs (which are going to be processed on the 14 nm FinFET process), the rivalry between the two smartphone behemoths is far from reaching a climax. In addition to launching Samsung Pay very soon, the company will also be taking on Apple Continuity with something called Samsung Flow. It appears that tech companies have developed a propensity of copying one feature or the other from the portfolio of another company. If you are familiar with the functionality of Apple Continuity, then Samsung Flow is practically the same thing, with the only difference being that whatever you used to carry out using your Apple products, you will be replicating that using Samsung’s.

Samsung Flow Present On Google Play, But Is Only Compatible With A Limited Number Of Devices

Following in the same footsteps as its arch nemesis Apple, Samsung has released a beta version of Samsung Flow that is available on Google Play. There are a number of perks of using Samsung Flow; starting off with reading an article on your phone and then switching it over to your slate after you get tired to browsing through the content of its little screen size. Additionally, you can also click on a map link in an article on your tablet, and if you don’t want to fire up the maps application from your large screen product, your smartphone can do that for you.

That’s not all; Samsung Flow also supports activity pausing. For example, if users are watching content on their mobile devices, they can either switch to their smartphones or tablets in order to resume their movie or TV show. Unfortunately, despite the myriad number of advantages of using Samsung Flow, the company has only made it compatible with a number of devices, with the details listed below:

  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy Alpha
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Tab S

Since the app is still in beta phase, you can rest assured that it is going to be far from perfect. Samsung has not yet commented whether more devices will be compatible with Samsung Flow once an official application has been rolled out by the firm. Regardless, as far as Apple is concerned, it has one more thing to worry about.
