Text your friends, watch a movie on the big screen, and get ready for your big presentation - all with a Galaxy device assisted by DeX.  It's versatile, hassle-free and is a perfect tool for multi-tasking. You can now use DeX's features with wireless connection. Simply connect to a Smart TV and cast your contents on the big screen without cluttering your work environment.

Make presentations a breeze

In charge of big project? DeX can help you give a seamless presentation. Simply press the 'DeX' button on your Galaxy, connect to the Smart TV in the meeting room and knock it out of the park.

Do double duty at home

Launch DeX on your phone and connect to a nearby TV to watch a movie on a big screen, or create a virtual classroom for the kids. Meanwhile, you can still get your own work done on the phone, including checking emails, or even taking notes with S Pen.

Your input is invaluable

Use your Galaxy phone as a touchpad with intuitive multi-finger gestures and customisable functions, or as an on-screen keyboard with a larger display
