Can I Use My Keyboard With All Applications?

Last Update date : 2013.06.03

Keyboard support was added to the Smart Hub functionality in 2011. Although keyboard functionality was added the app manufacturers can choose to allow or deny keyboard function while in their application.

To determine if keyboard functionality is available you need to see if the Samsung Keyboard function overlay appears or if an app specific keyboard, see examples below.

Samsung Overlay Keyboard


App Specific Keyboard



If the Samsung Overlay does not appear then the app does not support keyboard function and you must use the on-screen keyboard provided by the app.
