In the meantime, before we get started about Samsung DeX wireless Windows 10. Let’s have some information about Wireless DeX.

Samsung DeX Wireless

I was ecstatic when Samsung revealed that DeX will go wireless with One UI 2.5, which debuted with the Note20. I’d seldom used the app up to that point due to the necessity to link my phone to my PC. Unfortunately, wireless DeX only worked with compatible TVs and monitors, leaving the majority of PCs out in the cold. That has now changed with the release of One UI 3.1.

The first step in establishing wireless access is to upgrade your PC’s DeX software to the most recent version. Then, in your phone’s fast settings, tap the DeX shortcut and select DeX on PC. Then, from the list, select the required device and connect. At this point, you’ll see a connection prompt on the PC itself – it’s worth noting that this won’t function if you have Link to Windows attached, so turn that off before starting DeX.

Once everything is linked, you’ll receive the same DeX experience you’re used to, however wireless mode will be restricted to 1080p. When I tested it on my TV, everything was jerky and stuttery; on the PC, however, this was not the case. Although the input delay is negligible, I would not play a game in this manner; cabled is still the way to go. However, if you need to access your files or launch a presentation stored on your phone, this should be sufficient.

Unfortunately, S Pen support isn’t working as expected. When linked to a PC like way, your phone can still be used regularly, which is excellent on the one hand since I can perform my job in DeX while browsing social media on my phone. However, if you open Samsung Notes and go into drawing mode on your PC, it will use your mouse – you won’t be able to grab your phone and start sketching with your S-Pen. This appears to be a squandered opportunity, especially now that the S Pen has into the mainstream of the S series.
