What Is Samsung Link Sharing?
Samsung Social, a feature that enables Galaxy smartphone users to exchange photographs and more, including link sharing.
It enables you to send links rather than real files (5MB and greater) to other Samsung Galaxy handsets. If you or the receiver have an older phone or a small data plan, this function could be useful.
A non-Galaxy smartphone will receive photographs or other data sent through link sharing as an attachment.
Additionally, Samsung Social makes it simple to locate other Galaxy users.
Since Link Sharing is an app, you may also disable it by going to Settings > Apps > Link Sharing > Disable. Additionally, you may change the app’s settings to use Wi-Fi, delete expired files automatically, and more.
