Samsung shows off cross-device content sharing system

Samsung is currently working on Flow, a system designed to enable Samsung users to share content between their various devices.

Flow was shown off during the Samsung Developer Conference, so it isn’t quite ready for mainstream use just yet. However, early signs are promising. When Flow is installed on two or more Android devices that are in close proximity, users can share any content that would normally be shareable with Android's standard share intents.

Rather than sharing out to a specific app, users can simply share to Flow. This then lets users select what devices to share the content with. If you have a webpage open on your phone and wish to share it with your tablet, for example, you can share it to Flow, which will then open Chrome on your tablet.

Developers can take this one step further, as it could be possible to load up the exact position that you were on a webpage or the exact timestamp that you left a video.

Expect more news regarding Samsung Flow in the near future.
