Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note 9 get DeX for PC support with One UI 2.0 (Android 10) update
Shortly after the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 last year, Samsung introduced the new DeX integration with Windows and Mac PCs for the device. The feature was soon ported over to the Galaxy S10 series and there were rumors that the company was planning on extending support to its flagship lineup from 2018 with the One UI 2.0 update. Now, with the rollout of the Android 10 beta update for the Samsung Galaxy S9 series and stable update for the Note 9, it’s essentially been confirmed that DeX for PC is supported on Samsung’s 2018 flagships.
According to a recent report from SamMobile, the DeX for PC service now supports the Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9. With the One UI 2.0 update, Galaxy S9 and Note 9 users will now be able to connect their phones to a Windows or Mac PC using a USB cable and use it in a desktop environment. DeX for PC is a useful tool that allows users to get work done on documents stored on their devices, play mobile games with a keyboard and mouse, and drag/drop files from their phone to the PC and vice-versa.
However, in order to use DeX for PC, you’ll first need to download the app from the company’s official website. When you have that installed on your system, you just need to connect your phone to the PC and start using your phone in a desktop layout. It’s also worth noting that the DeX for PC support works on the Android 10 beta for these devices, so you don’t need to install the latest stable update to enjoy the new features.
