What is Snapdragon Seamless?

Snapdragon Seamless is a cross-platform technology that enables Windows, Android and Snapdragon devices to play nicely together, regardless of brand. This should make moving and sharing files more convenient, with the company claiming that they can work together as one integrated system. 

This new technology will enable different devices to work together. Mice and keyboards will work over PCs, phones and tablets and supported earbuds will be able to seamlessly switch to a new device, based on the priority of the audio. 

Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon Seamless can break down the barriers between OEMs, devices and operating systems for a more streamlined experience. Snapdragon Seamless will be incorporated into the latest Snapdragon 3 Gen 2 platform as well as the company’s latest PC platform, Snapdragon X Elite. 

At the time of writing, Microsoft, Android, Xiaomi, Asus, Honor, Lenovo and Oppo are all collaborating with Qualcomm to enable multi-device experiences. This software should become available for users early next year, although we will be sure to update this article when we have more information.
