How do I use the Quick Connect feature to connect my Galaxy Tab S2 with nearby devices?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Quick Connect


Quick connect simplifies sharing content with other devices. Let Quick connect find nearby devices, and then share your screen or send pictures, music, videos, and more.

Quick connect will also use the Bluetooth® feature, Wi-Fi Direct®, or Screen Mirroring, depending on the type of content being shared and whether the other device has Quick connect installed.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Share Content with Quick Connect


Note: When Quick connect is turned ON, other devices will be able to see your device and send sharing requests.

1. To access Quick connect from any menu or application, swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom to open the Notification Panel.

Find a Nearby Device


If the device you want to connect to does not automatically display:


1. Make sure the device you want to connect to is turned ON and the screen is awake.

If Quick connect is not installed on the device you want to connect to, check the following settings (some will only apply to certain types of devices):


• Make sure the device you are connecting to has the Bluetooth feature turned ON and the Bluetooth visibility set to be visible to all nearby devices.

• Make sure both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.

• To use Screen Mirroring, turn ON Screen Mirroring on both devices.
