Wi-Fi Direct allows two devices to establish a direct, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connection without requiring a wireless router. It’s like Bluetooth in that you need to introduce each Wi-Fi Direct capable device to the other and create a connection.
This means that with Wi-Fi Direct you can directly connect a mobile device to the TV without an existing Wi-Fi network. You can stream media files from the mobile device onto the TV. Show your photos up on the TV screen to share with friends and family, or watch your favourite cat videos from Youtube. Easy!
Both the TV and mobile device must have Wi-Fi direct for this feature to work. An easy way to tell if your TV has Wi-Fi direct is if you have the Wi-Fi direct option in your settings (see below). The Wi-Fi direct option on most Samsung mobile devices will be in the Share menu.
To use Wi-Fi Direct follow the steps below:
On your newer TV models, for instance the Q series and NU series, all you need to do is turn on Wi-fi Direct from your phone, select your TV from the available devices and you are set up and ready to go.
