    Um, I used sidesync all the time. It was one of the reasons I bought my Tab S3 / Note 8 / Note 9 combo.

    After the One UI update, It's gone from my phone, and I can't find it in Google Play or Samsung apps.

    This was a core functionality for me, and if it is truly gone, outrageous that I have spent the money that I have only to have it removed with an update.

    Samsung has been phasing out Sidesync for a while. I don't think it was officially supported on the S9 or Note 9 since launch. Much (if not all) of the functionality is now provided with Samsung Flow. Here is some info:

    Flow replaced it, and has much deeper integration. Sidesync doesn't work on Pie, which is why it's gone. (It's also ancient and hasn't had an update in over a year)

    Thank you for the info... unless I'm missing something, Flow doesn't seem to let you use the phone from the tablet screen, which was the main reason I used that app.

    Thanks again for the help.

    You mean mirror? It should. There is a button that flips it to the full mirroring.

    If you do a search in the forum there's a thread that has a link to download the apk file for sidesync. Samsung flow sucks so bad. Lol

    Sidesync doesn't work well on Pie. There's a reason it's gone and won't let pie devices download it.

    Thank you for the reply, but the button doesn't do anything for me. It changes color, but doesn't do anything. Any ideas?

    You might have to troubleshoot with Samsung, because it should work since you have an S3

    Samsung flow does nothing. I can't mirror or transfer files on Bluetooth or wifi. Sidesync brings up my screen to mirror, but I mainly just use it transfer files and that's working with no issue. Not sure about the rotation thing.

    Not sure what you're experiencing though. Samsung Flow does everything perfect on my end. I don't even use Bluetooth for Flow, I use WiFi.

    Flow will let me connect to wifi, but when I try to move files over it fails. I switched to Bluetooth and same thing. Guess it doesn't like my computer. *shrugs *

    Help! I just bought the S2 tablet to use the mirroring option with my Note 9 phone and now I see that Samsung says smart view is not available on tablet. As is flow does nothing but show me notifications. Am I missing something??
