Galaxy S6: How to share content with Quick connect

As you probably know, you can use the Quick connect feature to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 with nearby devices. Sadly, I discovered that this feature is not actually used by the majority of users and it’s a shame to be one of them as well, trust me on that.

With the help of this Lollipop feature, you can find nearby devices, and then share pictures, music, videos, send your screen and more.
