When Samsung launched its home-targeted hub for file and media storage and streaming early this year, it only included support for its very latest high end Android devices. That device portfolio has since been revised to include its 2013 devices like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and Galay Note 10.1 2014 edition. Those aside, Samsung quietly added support for even more Samsung devices including 2011 and 2012 models (see full list here) and starting today all that is coming to every compatible Android device out there.
This is actually some very good news since Samsung’s recent tendency to lock down any accessories and additional devices to only its long lineup of smartphones, laptops and TVs was getting some of us worried. The Galaxy Gear comes in as a good example here. HomeSync would have been the next example I would give but for now I have to check it off my list, gladly. Now all that you have to do is download the Homesync app from the Play Store (link at the end).
HomeSync gives users 1 terabyte of private cloud storage and since the target market is a family setup, it can be used by up to eight people connecting up to five devices each. The users can then be able to directly access their stored content on their Android smartphones or even streaming them to their TVs using a HDMI cable.
