Apple’s Continuity is one technology that we all are a big fan of. For those of you who don’t know about it, let me give you guys a brief introduction. Continuity is a big boon for people who own more than one Apple device and just cant stick to one for a couple of hours. This may not sound like a problem. But for people who have to work for long hours, this habit might cause some discomfort. The Continuity was designed for people like these as this technology from Apple allows you to stream all your content from one Apple device to another, be it be music, videos or your documents. You just dont have to worry anymore about having to continue to work from the same device that you left your work on, you can continue that work from anywhere.
Wondering why this intro about Continuity? Because Samsung too has announced their very own version of Continuity, named Samsung Flow.
Samsung’s Flow does the same tasks as Apple’s Continuity but works only on Samsung devices, which was pretty obvious. Flow has three main features:
Transfer feature is the main motive behind Flow as this is the feature that lets you transfer content from one Samsung device to another, as the name suggests. You can simply start watching a movie on your smartphone, continue it on your tablet and end it on your TV, provided that all devices are Samsung branded. Not only media, you can also stream important documents and other important stuff. For example, you can bookmark an important webpage on your smartphone or mark a mail as important on your Gear and come back home to start working on it on your computer.
This feature is pretty similar to the above one, except that is meant for working on different devices. This feature lets you save tasks on one device and then continue the same task from some other device.
As the name suggests, this feature will notify you of all the notifications on all the devices that you choose to connect via Flow.
Flow still is in its final stages and there’s no release date yet but we sure can expect Flow to be out for Samsung devices next year. Till then, have a look at flow in this video and stay tuned for more updates.
