The Samsung Galaxy Grand is an interesting device. Despite having a 5 inch display -- the current standard for the high-end -- the Grand is definitely aimed at the mid-range market. It carries all the software bells and whistles of the current lead devices in the Samsung stable, with Android 4.1.2 and the latest version of Touchwiz, but has a dual-core CPU and a WVGA display. But, in India, the Galaxy Grand is reportedly seeing an interesting new update pushing out. 

The small OTA, weighing in at just 27.86MB, brings with it a version of the new Group Play feature recently announced on the brand new Galaxy S4. We've previously heard that Samsung plans on bringing elements of the Galaxy S4 software to the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 in particular, but that a mid-range device such as this is seeing some love is fantastic news. 

Group Play on the Galaxy Grand allows users to share music, documents and videos across devices when connected to the same WiFi network or via WiFi direct. 

Anyone out there snagged this update for themselves? Be sure to hit up the comments below and share it with us.

My dad got a system update a few days ago on his Sprint Galaxy S3 that included Group Play.

Group Play is part of Sammy 4.1.2 ROM itself and is already included in GS3 and Note2. From what I have heard, Group Play on GS4 will not require devices connected to same wifi and still will be able to share which is not the case in current version of Group Play.
