Samsung Flow now lets users mirror smartphone screens to Galaxy tablets
After announcing the demise of the SideSync app and service next month, Samsung recommended users to start using another app instead – Samsung Flow. Just like SideSync, Samsung Flow is supposed to enable users to mirror their smartphones to larger displays.

The Flow app wasn't meant to offer users the option to mirror smartphone screens to tablets, but since Samsung plans to replace SideSyn with Flow, the app has been recently updated with this specific feature.

Apart from being able to mirror the phone screen on Galaxy tablets, the phone screen windows can also be used alongside other apps on the tablet with the Multi window feature, SamMobile reports. Also, the update adds the ability to transfer entire folders instead of just files.

Samsung Flow was only capable of mirroring phone screen to PC, but with the latest update, the feature is brought to smartphones as well. If you're still using SideSync, you might want to switch to Samsung Flow since the former will be discontinued on October 15.

No not really. This capability has existed on Samsung devices for quite some type. This just blows away AirPlay. The advantages of this feature is, you can be using your tablet and use your phone at the same time with it in tour pocket. You can receive and answer calls, texts and even launch your phone apps right in the tablet screen, so that you don't have always install the same app on both devices. I still use SideSync and prefer it over Flow, only because I am more use to the UI.

I've been using this feature since 1999 for presentations on smart TVs. Totallu underrated IMO.

I am wondering if this will work for my Samsung Chromebook?

Probably not. Flow is designed for Windows
