During the launch event of the Galaxy S20 line, Samsung announced a feature to facilitate the file management of smartphones. The “drag and drop” function between the brand’s devices and Windows 10 PCs, already present in the S10 line, will land with the new devices.

Available for Windows Insiders, up to 100 files can be transferred at one time, each of which can be a maximum of 512 MB. Both your PC and your cell phone must be connected to the same WiFi network.
