Now enjoy the seamless data transfers from one Samsung gadget to the other with the new Samsung Flow App beta.

 The South Korean firm has introduced Flow similar to Apple at last year’s developer’s conference.

The app is compatible with Samsung devices such as Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, and Galaxy Tab S.

The app was created by the Think Tank team along with Samsung and the firm says that it is not just an app but a platform as it allows app transition activities across devices.

To use the app users have to install it and add it to the collection. The app has three features: Transfer, Defer, and Notify.

The app also supports apps such as Google Maps, SoundCloud, Pinterest, Twitter, Yelp and YouTube.

Think Tank team explains how Samsung's Flow communicates. "Flow uses Bluetooth LE to advertise a device's availability, and it uses Wi-Fi (if devices are on the same network) or Bluetooth (if they're not) to communicate between devices."
