Anyone facing any issues after combining the quick share and the nearby share on Samsung devices? Before this update, I used nearby share on my Galaxy S23 to my non Samsung phones of my friends. But after combining these two, this particular feature doesn't seem to work no matter what. I can not get it to send to nearby share devices. It does show up in the settings but when attempted to send a file, it fails.

The new ruined version of Quick Share is typical google garbage. Go to your settings >apps >find quick share, QS agent and QS connectivity and uninstall updates. Then see if it works again. I did just that and QS worked fine again.

No good. The Nearby Share button returns but it just tells me "Use Quick Share!"
Updated or not, I can go longer share with my (fully up to date) Motorola now that they flipped the switch. Thanks Samsung.

You're absolutely right guys. The last update of QuickShare, QS Agent and QS Connectivity ruined everything 😑. The version before the update works PERFECT and much BETTER. I had to return back to the version before the update via sharing the three Apps from one of my friends who hasn't made the update yet 😅 !!! and recommended him and almost everyone I know who owns Samsung device NOT to update and keep it that old way. The new update makes it more complicated to connect between devices even those sharing the same Samsung Account 😑 !!! Even the devices can't detect each other as before and almost at all !!! Why Samsung are you doing this to us Why ?!!! Bring back the old version just before the update in which everything was working PERFECTLY !!

I'm sharing my old version of the three Apps that work PERFECT for those who made the update and can't go back:

How to install these apps? I cannot uninstall the native quick share, so these apps are not installing.
