How to Share Video Files on Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 via Gallery App

This post will show you a simple method of sharing a video clip from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Gallery. Read on for more detailed instructions.

Android File Sharing

File sharing or file transfer in Android devices can be carried out through wired or wireless media. Although wired transfers are upright, many would prefer the latter method for faster and seamless transfers.

And with the constant updates and system enhancements pushed by leading device manufacturers on a regular basis, things only get better and better with mobile file sharing.

In this quick video, I will demonstrate a simple way of transferring a video clip straight from the Galaxy Tab S6 Gallery app. And here’s how it’s done.

Easy Steps to Share Video Files from your Galaxy Tab S6 Gallery

Time Needed : 5 minutes

The following are actual steps and screenshots taken from the Galaxy Tab S6 user interface. While these steps are applicable to other Samsung Galaxy devices, actual screens and menu items may vary depending on the service provider as well as device models.

  1. To get started, go to the Home screen and then swipe up from the bottom of the display.

    Performing this gesture will launch the Apps viewer.
    On the Apps viewer, different app icons or shortcut controls populate.
    Tapping on any of these icons would result in the launching of a certain application.

You can also share other videos straight from the Videos folder. To do this, tap Videos to access the folder and then select any from the existing video clips or files.

Then, follow the rest of the onscreen prompts until you get to select the file sharing method to use.

Other Built-in File Sharing Options

Another easier way to share a video file or Gallery clip from your Galaxy Tab S6 is through direct share. This sharing feature is typically enabled by default but can also be turned on manually, if needed.

  • To enable Direct Share on your Tab S6, simply go to the Settings menu then search for and select Direct share. If the Direct share switch is turned off, just tap to turn it on.

After enabling Direct share, navigate to the video file that you want to share from the Gallery, select the file then tap the Share icon. Finally, select the desired method from the sharing panel.

You can also use Link Sharing to share large video files on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 in full quality.

  • To do this, just open the Gallery app, select the file then tap Share. From the Sharing panel, tap Link Sharing then select the option to Share large files. 

Simply follow the rest of the onscreen instructions to complete the sharing process and everything should be all set.

Cannot Send a Video on your Tab S6?

If you encounter an error and are unable to send the video file, check the file size. It’s possible that the video file you’re trying to send is too large and therefore needs to be converted. In this case, you can make use of any video converter Android app then import the video that you want to compress. The app should shrink the video size considerably and thereby makes it easier to send through email or of the built-in file sharing tools available.
