Samsung has unveiled a feature that allows tasks to be started on one device and continued on another, effectively rivalling Apple's Continuity service.
Samsung Flow was revealed at the company's Developer Conference, and exists currently as a platform enabling developers to create apps and features that push content to and from different devices.
The company has split Flow into three main areas: Transfer, Defer and Notify. Transfer allows content, such as video, phone calls and photos, to be moved across devices.
Notify pushes notifications, such as incoming calls and software updates, to multiple devices, while Defer allows a paused activity to be continued on another device.

Samsung xplained that people use multiple devices, such as TVs, laptops and smartphones, in their everyday lives but are limited by data being tied to one application on one device, despite the prevalence of cloud technology.
"Until now, developers have lacked a cohesive way to let users work across devices, platforms and applications seamlessly," Samsung said.
"With Samsung Flow, that capability is within reach of every developer in a way that's consistent for users, and integrates seamlessly with the workflow provided by the operating system."
The Flow software development kit has been released only to developers at this stage, making it unlikely that Samsung devices will get the feature anytime soon.
V3 asked Samsung when Flow is likely to become widely available, but the company has yet to respond.
Samsung Flow is similar to Apple's Continuity feature released with Mac OS X which allows users to access content across iOS and Mac devices.
