    Hi everyone, I was wondering if it possible to do nearby share with my note 20 ultra to older devices like the S8? I tried looking online could not really find anything

    Can in work in conjunction with android beam?

    Thanks

    I think both devices have to be recent enough to support the feature. I think you can get the same general feature if both phones have Files by Google installed and you share files that way. https://support.google.com/files/answer/7577382?hl=en

    I forgot about Samsung's own Quick Share feature. From what I read, older phones require Android 10 for it to work -- is your S8 on Android 10?

    The S8 should've received Android 10, so check with your friend.

    Oh you're right -- I was looking at a misleading headline in a search!
