Since One UI 3.1 came out, wifi direct was removed and now we can only receive files via wifi direct and not send them.

Nope, Quick Share is a completely seperate thing, its just like Apple AirDrop.

Thanks for that cannot make sense of why they would do such a thing I'm trying to send my full music collection to my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini( just to use as a mp3 player with it having a headphone jack a screen and things) still works a treat just obviously the software is very dated and although I can still send and receive via Wi-Fi Direct on the S4 Mini I can't do that on my S21 Ultra I don't suppose you have any suggestions to have I could send roughly 100 MP3s wirelessly from an S21 ultra to an S4 Mini without going through Bluetooth as that it's something I don't really have the time for anyway thanks for your help and thanks for getting back to me on that one👏👏🙏

Try to share all the music using Link Sharing and then create a link and type it into the browser of your Galaxy S4 Mini.

My phone is up to date & i have wifi direct. I found it in connections, click on wifi & then click on the 3 dots in the top right corner.

You can try using 'send anywhere'. Download it from the Google Play Store. Also, if you don't prefer that, try using 'we transfer'. This is a website that is great in sharing online files. Hope this helps! :smiling-face:
