With the launch of the Galaxy S20, Samsung took service provision to a whole new level. Their support was already very good but they make an attempt to make sure Samsung device users are able to properly understand the technology used. Samsung has done this by introducing Samsung Smart Switch which allows Samsung Galaxy users to transfer data easily from one Samsung device to another. This software was specifically designed to allow users to transfer data from Samsung to Samsung. With it, you can transfer music from one Samsung phone to another.
