How do i connect my tablet to my phone to swap files?

Hello

 

I have a new tab a and a year old galaxy s7 edge.

 

I wish to connect them in 2019 to send files etc 

 

There use to be a quick connect function but it's vanished.

 

If I go to Bluetooth they can see each other and attempt to pair or claim they are paired but then they just fail to do anything and they claim I need to turn wifi off which makes no difference or that I need to turn Bluetooth on both devices which I have and then they claim no devices near.....typical samsung  nonsense.

 

Can someone help me overcome this simple problem please ?

 

I buy all samsung but every year they are less compatible :(

Hi @Endlessproblem.

 

Have you tried using Samsung Smart Switch to transfer your data? Have a look here.

Hi thanks for helping. I'm aware of that but it seems a little bit convoluted for small files compared to the quick connect system I was using before the update. Why doesn't the pairing system work anymore ???
