Tips and tricks for the Samsung Galaxy S20

Samsung already has new flagships: the Galaxy S20, which arrive with very interesting functions. Although this is not your first Galaxy, this new technology can be a bit overwhelming if you do not know how to maximize it.

Luckily for you, we've spent enough time with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra to know how to get the most out of it. These are our favorite tips and tricks for anyone who has just bought a Galaxy S20 mobile.

1. Deactivate the Bixby button

Technically speaking, the Galaxy S20 does not include a Bixby button. Now, you will immediately notice that Samsung has configured its flagship in such a way that, by pressing the power button, the virtual assistant opens instead of turning off the mobile.

To avoid this, you must open the Settings, followed by Advanced functions. You will see that the first option is Side key, where you can change the function that this button does. You can configure to open the camera, Bixby or any app by pressing it twice.

2. Customize the Edge Panel Controller

Edge panels are nothing new, but I do know that they are still a little-used feature of Samsung's One UI operating system. They can be easily customized and we recommend that you do so on your new Galaxy S20.

Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen and you'll open the Edge panel, which by default offers shortcuts to various apps. Have you noticed that when you swipe again you access other panels with shortcuts to screenshots and other tools?

If you tap on the gear-shaped icon you will see in the lower left corner, you will access more tools than you can add. There, touch the three dots and you can configure what opens each panel, as well as the position, size and color of the bar.

3. Take advantage of the new Quick Share feature

Samsung may not have added many features to the software from the S20 series, but one of them is Quick Share and you won't be disappointed. With it you can easily share documents as if it were the Samsung AirDrop version.

You will find it by default in the panel you access by sliding down from the top of the screen. On the second screen you will see the button that corresponds to Quick Share. Tap on it to activate it.

If you press on this button for a few seconds, you will access its configuration. That means you can decide if you want other people not on your contact list to be able to share documents with you, and you can also change the name of your device.

With Quick Share activated, you will find the option to use it whenever you access the menu to share a specific document. The big drawback is that it only works with other phones with Quick Share, that is, only with Galaxy phones with One UI 2.1.

4. Share your music with Music Sharing

The Music Sharing function is another great novelty of the Galaxy S20, although it has the same limitations as Quick Share and cannot be used with iPhones, Android phones or even other Samsungs that do not have One UI 2.1 installed.

Now with the smartphones that are compatible, this feature will allow them to connect to your bluetooth speaker or to your wireless headphones through your Galaxy S20. For it to work, you will have to have both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth activated.
