Microsoft is preparing the arrival of its 'Creators Update' in the coming weeks - all rumors point to the month of April - and among the novelties there is one that will not come directly from the company of Redmond, but Samsung.
The South Korean firm is upgrading its Flow application to be compatible with Windows 10. That means that any device in the Galaxy range with a fingerprint reader could serve to unlock the session on Windows 10-based computers. Like having an external fingerprint reader for your computer when you need it, go.
More interoperability, more options
Samsung Flow was launched more than two years ago with the idea of offering interoperability between devices of all kinds, and the feature has been gaining ground when it connects the mobile to the PC to answer the notifications of the phone directly from that PC.
It is an interesting alternative to the integration of biometric systems that Microsoft has driven with the Windows Hello technology. We are beginning to see cameras with iris recognition and also fingerprint readers on laptops, but it has occurred to Samsung that users who already have a device with this sensor can take advantage of their computers with Windows 10.
According to SamMobile the feature that was already activated in the Galaxy TabPro S its convertible tablet based on Windows 10 - will expand to all types of equipment thanks to the requests of the user community, who could soon take advantage of that ability to have an interesting Alternative when it comes to protecting sessions on their desktops and laptops.
