Call and Message Continuity future device support

So Samsung released a video recently highlighting a 'new' feature for the Tab S5e and S10. Receive calls and messages on your tablet from your phone. 

Reminiscent of SideSync, I want this on my S9+ and Tab S4. There's no reason it shouldn't be! 

 

Thankfully it is available on my Tab S4 but still not on my S9+ so I can't use it. Anyone know if/when this feature is coming to other devices?

What tab S4 model number do you have? Because right now the message and call continuity is not available for mine and does anyone know if it will be available for mine soon? This is the feature I have been waiting for since the tab S2Screenshot_20190801-192724_Settings.jpg

@Zachb5608, this function should be available for your tablet Galaxy Tab S4 (SM-T830). You have to enable it in your phone and tablet settings. Please have a look here for more details.

@Vimaleddy, yes it does. Galaxy Tab S4 Wi-Fi (SM-T830) support this feature according to the information from Samsung Members app.

@Vimaleddy, no problem! Galaxy Tab S4 is still a good and reliable device. If you need fast processor and support for pen then it is a good idea to buy S4. There is also a Galaxy Tab S5e tablet which is newer and cheaper than S4. It has weaker hardware and do not have support for pen but it is a good device. I am using it since last month and I am very satisfied with general performance of this device. It has Samsung DeX onboard which means you do not have to connect it with external monitor. You can also buy a dedicated keyboard which is also good.

@Zachb5608, I suggest you to contact Samsung directly via Samsung Members app. This function should be available for your device. Please see below screenshot from Samsung Members notice:

Maybe CMC is country or operator dependent. Unfortunately I do not have more information for you.
