Samsung Smart Switch: what it is and How to Use it!

The new Samsung Smart Switch makes the process of backing up data an easy task. You can back up the data to the computer, and then restore the backed-up data to any Samsung phablet, smartphone, or tablet. It is to be noted that this feature can be enjoyed only if your Samsung product is manufactured post-2016. The device must also run at least Marshmallow or Android 6.0. The list of compatible OS includes Android 7.0 (Nougat) or the latest Android 8.0 (Oreo). To use this feature, you must download a few elements and install them.

The mobile application of Smart Switch comes already installed on the later edition of Samsung phablets and Galaxy range of smartphones. You must, however, install this app on the Galaxy Tab tablet. This can be done via the Galaxy Apps store. As a consumer, it is important that you first download and then install Smart Switch. This can be downloaded into the Mac or Windows PC. The source is the Samsung website.

After you install Smart Switch on to your computer, it is time to match media files between the computer and the smartphone. To do this, connect the tablet or the smartphone to the USB port on any Mac or PC. Launch the Samsung Smart Switch on the computer. Disconnect the smartphone if the Smart Switch cannot find the tablet or smartphone right away. Connect the tablet or smartphone into the USB port.
