How To Use Wireless PowerShare In Galaxy S10, S10E ,S10Plus

Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 lineup in February. The company unveiled a new feature called Wireless PowerShare. The cool feature essentially lets you literally turn your S10 into a wireless charging mat so you can power up your Galaxy Watch, Buds, or just another Qi-enabled phone just by laying it on the back of the S10.

Wireless PowerShare works on all the three models:

  • Galaxy S10E
  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10 Plus

This feature will also be a part of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold to be launched in April.

STEPS TO USE WIRELESS POWERSHARE:

Wireless PowerShare is simple and straightforward to use and doesn’t have a settings pane in the Settings app.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to view the Quick Settings pane
  2. Tap on the Wireless PowerShare button. A popup will appear on your screen which shows how to best line up the S10 with any device it’ll be charging.
  3. Lay the S10 on its face and place a second phone, Galaxy Watch, or Galaxy Buds case back-to-back against the S10. For best results, you’ll want to line up the phones the same way to prevent slipping and make sure the coils meet.
  4. If Wireless PowerShare doesn’t detect a device charging, it will disable after 30 seconds automatically.
