Google May Merge Nearby Share with Samsung’s Quick Share

Published

on


Prior to making Nearby Share available to all Android phones running on Android 6.0 and above in August of the same year, Google first introduced the beta version of the feature on a limited number of Pixel and Samsung devices in June 2020. Conversely, Quick Share is a compatible function that Samsung also introduced for their Galaxy device series. However, despite currently operating as separate services, there is a possibility that these two functions, Quick Share and Nearby Share, could be combined in the future.

A report suggests that Samsung and Google may combine another product, as Google’s “nearby share” may soon be renamed “quick share,” which is the precise moniker for Samsung’s peer-to-peer file-sharing service. Kamila Wojciechowska, an extraordinary Pixel leaker, received Google Play Services app version 23.50.13, according to the report. She saw many clues in it that suggested Google would be changing Nearby Share’s name to Quick Share. The leaker’s X profile published these clues earlier today.

Regarding the new icon, Kamila shared a close-up of it for improved visibility, but it is also visible in the Quick Settings tile and the notice that is shared by the leaker. She got a notice saying, “Nearby Share is now Quick Share,” after updating to the most recent version of the Google Play Services app. The notice also stated to “search for the new name and icon to share with nearby devices.” She also revealed the sharing menu screenshots and the feature’s settings, which are now referred to as Quick Share.

You can restrict Quick Share to your devices or the devices of your contacts, or leave it open to all users. Selecting the contacts option will enable file sharing and sync data with the contacts in your Google account. In order to increase privacy, you can also restrict Quick Share exposure to ten minutes. Since Google has already added Nearby Share to the Windows OS, it may rename Nearby Share for Windows to Quick Share if the Quick Share rebranding is approved.

Google regularly introduces some new features for enhancing the overall security of the devices, so to ensure it, the company frequently brings new updates that change the functionality and bring more additions under its application so users can always be safe from different types of security changes. Users will be able to delete accounts from the application easily.

Deleting app accounts on the Google Play Store 

Last month, Google announced a change for applications that will allow users to delete accounts from applications that were previously used. To make it available, the company has strictly taken the step to force the developer to take a quick step to remove the account from the Play Store directly.

As far as the availability of the new option is concerned, the deletion of the account button will be available under the page of the application in the section on data security. Once you tap on it, the data collected by the application will be removed from it.’

The option has now started appearing on the latest version of the Galaxy Play Store. If you also want to get this option, then check for the latest update. For some users, the option may be available automatically through the server side. Apart from this, the Play Store has also grabbed some new features that will enhance the user experience.

Samsung Galaxy Devices Get Copilot Integration in Telegram

Here’s a new novelty for Samsung Galaxy users to enhance their Telegram experience, as you can now access ChatGPT-powered Copilot inside Telegram. 

Undoubtedly, a new-generation AI-powered digital assistant is a hot topic in the tech industry, and with the revolutionary ChatGPT, the AI era got a boost. Now, Samsung Galaxy users can easily access Copilot inside Telegram on their Galaxy devices. This AI assistant from OpenAI powers Microsoft’s Copilot and is reported to power a few AI features in Apple’s upcoming iOS 18 update. 

Now get ready to have flawless conversations with Copilot inside Telegram, as it is announced to be your everyday AI companion. You can now ask it for movies, trip plans, how to improve your language, restaurant recommendations, and many more. On its help page, Microsoft assures that you can get sports stats, personalized music playlist recommendations, fun facts, jokes, workout tips, and trip planning through Copilot on Telegram. Noticeably, being a Microsoft product, you can access information from the web via Bing Search. 

However, here’s the limitation: Copilot on Telegram has a daily limit of 30 interactions, unlike the full Bing app. This limit is similar to Google’s introduction of limited access to its AI, Gemini, within the Message application. You can easily access Copilot inside Telegram on your Galaxy device by just following the steps mentioned below: 

  • Open Telegram on your Galaxy device. 
  • Type @CopilotOfficialBot in the search bar and tap on it. 
  • Tap the Start button. 
  • It will ask you to share your registered phone number. 
  • Select ‘Send My Mobile Number’ to get started. 
  • Now the Copilot will share a few recommendations; you can tap one of those or type something if you want your own.

Samsung Ends iFixit Collaboration, Google Picks It Up

Published

on

By


iFixit has already announced it will be ending its collaboration with Samsung, which allowed it to distribute official parts and create repair guides for Samsung smartphones. 

Last week, we reported that iFixit, stepping back from its collaboration with Samsung, has tried to advance the right-to-repair movement by partnering with big tech manufacturers and announced that it is ending its collaboration with Samsung. The merger allowed iFixit to distribute official parts and create repair guides for Samsung devices. However, iFixit cut off the deal, saying that Samsung’s “approach to repairability does not align with our mission.” 

iFixit is known for reliable parts and repair guides; they stopped working with Samsung, but the report suggests that the Korean giant didn’t fully support the partnership’s goal. However, at the moment, it is yet to be clear who’s primarily at fault. iFixit will not create repair guides for Samsung devices anymore. 

Despite everything, there’s an uninvolved party that is sitting pretty through all the drama, named Google. Samsung is not interested in Right to Repair, as is quite clear from the failed partnership with iFixit. However, Google partners with iFixit for parts and guides, supports Right to Repair legislation, and makes repairing Pixel phones easier. At the moment, it’s not clear how the collaboration between iFixit and Samsung fell apart. iFixit shared some of its side of the story in a blog post and a subsequent interview between the company’s CEO and one of our colleagues, The Verge. 

The reason behind the failure of the Samsung Repair Hub partnership was that Samsung made it difficult for people to fix their devices affordably; for instance, Samsung limited iFixit from selling more than 7 parts per customer in 3 months, hurting repair shops. These limitations made repairs quite expensive for consumers who didn’t have a high budget. Also, it only sold batteries pre-attached to new screens, forcing customers to buy unnecessary parts. So these are a few basic reasons behind the failure of this program.
