What is the Smart Pause™ feature on my Samsung Galaxy Tab® S 10.5?

Last Update date : 2014.12.17

Smart Pause™

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


From the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Settings 1 > Device > Motions 1 > Mute/pause. Touch the slider 1 to turn Mute/pause on 1 . Mark the Smart pause checkbox to turn on the feature.

Smart Pause works best under the following conditions:

    • When the device is held steady and upright.

    • When the device is in well-lit conditions, but the screen is not in direct light.

NOTE: Smart Pause will not work if you are using a downloaded video player, a pop-up player, or Multi Window™.
