Galaxy Ecosystem (Step-by-Step Guide) – Powerful Apart, Stronger Together

Apple shot the concept of an ecosystem, and everybody followed. So far, it is the only company offering excellent services to consumers through its ecosystem and is the number one brand that offers seamless integration across devices. Besides Apple, Samsung is the only brand that offers an alternative ecosystem for Android fanatics. Of course, there are other brands in the pipeline, such as OnePlus and Realme, but they still need to develop a complete ecosystem. The Galaxy ecosystem allows users to pair up to three products and offers exclusive benefits like Auto Switch, App Continuity and Tablet Keyboard Share, which help you use multiple interconnected Galaxy devices seamlessly. Let’s see how it works!

Sharing Files Across Devices Using Quick Share

Quick Share is a special feature only available on Samsung Galaxy devices. It allows you to easily share files between these devices. To enable Quick Share on your Samsung Galaxy device, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your device.
  2. Search for “Quick Share” in the Settings app.
  3. Enable Quick Share.

Once you have set up Quick Share, you can start sharing files between your devices. 

Here’s how:

  1. Make sure Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled on both devices.
  2. On your Galaxy phone, go to the File Explorer or Gallery.
  3. Select the files you want to share.
  4. Tap the Share option.
  5. Choose the Quick Share option to start sharing.

If you’re using a Galaxy Book, the steps are slightly different:

  1. Open the File Explorer on your Galaxy Book.
  2. Right-click on the file you want to share.
  3. Click on “Share using Quick Share.”
  4. Quick Share will open and show nearby Galaxy devices.
  5. Select the device you want to share files with to begin sharing.

Using Galaxy Tab as a Second Screen for Galaxy Book

If you have a Galaxy Tab and a Galaxy Book, you can use the Tab as a second screen for your laptop. 

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. On your Galaxy Tab, open the Settings app.
  2. Go to “Connected devices” and select “Second Screen.”
  3. Your Tab will enter pairing mode.

Now, on your Galaxy Book, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Second Screen app on your Galaxy Book.
  2. Under the “Available tablets” section, click on your tablet’s name.
  3. Your Galaxy Tab will now function as a second screen for your Galaxy Book.
  4. You can connect multiple tablets and use their touch screens to control Windows OS.

To disconnect the second screen, open the Second Screen app on your Galaxy Book and click on the Disconnect button next to the tablet’s name.

Controlling Galaxy Phone and Tab from Galaxy Book

With the Multi Control feature, you can use your Galaxy Book’s cursor and keyboard to control your Galaxy phone and tablet. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. On your Galaxy Phone or tablet, open the Settings app.
  2. Go to “Connected devices” and enable the toggle for Multi Control.
  3. On your Galaxy Book, open Samsung Settings and go to “Connected devices.”
  4. Make sure the toggle for Multi Control is turned on.
  5. Under the “Connect to” section, select the Galaxy phone or tablet you want to control.
  6. Now you can use your Galaxy Book’s mouse and physical keyboard to control your phone or tablet.

You can also set the Auto connection settings to Always, so your devices will automatically connect when they are nearby and have Multi Control enabled. You can disable Multi Control from the Settings or Notification Panel on your Galaxy phone or tablet.

Streaming Galaxy Phone and Tab Apps to PC

If you have a Windows 10 or 11 PC, you can use the Phone Link app to stream apps from your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet to your PC. Here’s how:

You can turn on your Galaxy phone’s hotspot remotely from your PC using Phone Link. 

Here’s how:

  1. Click on the taskbar icon at the bottom right corner of your PC.
  2. Select the Wi-Fi option.
  3. Choose your phone from the list and click on Connect.
  4. This will automatically enable your phone’s hotspot for your PC to connect to.
