Samsung Link is an app that connects all devices and storage services in one place for integrated search and playback. Users can register their device such as a PC, smartphone, or tablet to the same account, and listen to music, share photos or documents, and watch videos on their device remotely. Content on storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive, or SugarSync (though some SugarSync accounts discontinued on 7 March 2014) can be also downloaded or streamed.[citation needed]

Features[edit]

1. Remote playback and transfer of content across devices[edit]

As well as content on the home PC, content on devices with the same account can be played or transferred across devices while on the move.

2. Access content on TV[edit]

Using the DLNA function supported by AllShare, users can play videos saved on their PC, smartphone, tablet, or TV. In addition, once logged in with the same account, users can also access content on devices connected to other networks or on a storage service on their TV.

3. Auto upload of recorded photos/videos[edit]

Users can choose to automatically upload content on their camera, PC, smartphone, storage device, or tablet.

4. Integrated search[edit]

With the integrated search window, Samsung Link lets users search for content across all registered Samsung devices or storage services with the same account.
