Galaxy Note 3 - What is the Smart Pause™ feature?

Last Update date : 2014.09.25

Smart Pause

The Smart Pause feature uses the front camera to sense when you are looking at your device, and it pauses video playback when you look away from the screen.


To activate Smart Pause, from the Home screen, touch Menu1 > Settings1 > Controls1 > Smart screen1 > Smart pause.

When the feature is on, a green check mark will appear.

Smart Pause may not work in the following situations:

• When the front camera fails to detect face and eyes.

• When the source of the light is behind you or when using the device in the dark.

• When the front camera is already in use by another application.

• When you are connected to an external video device using the AllShare® Cast Wireless Hub or an HDMI® cable.

• When you are using other gestures, such as Air View™.

NOTE: Smart Pause will be unable to pause if you are using a third-party video player, pop-up player, or Multi Window™.
