Galaxy Books give you seamless continuity with your Galaxy smartphone via Samsung DeX and Windows Your Phone which comes preinstalled on the Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion. Use Samsung DeX to use your phone like a PC. You can drag and drop files and folders or write messages and emails from your smartphone using the keyboard, mouse and display of your Galaxy Book. Microsoft Your Phone lets you connect wirelessly, mirror your phone, sync notifications and more.

It's much more convenient to work on documents and send messages with a bigger screen and using a keyboard and touchpad or mouse. Samsung DeX lets you use your Galaxy Book to access your smartphone, including the mail and gallery folders so you can copy and move files between your smartphone and your Galaxy Book quickly and easily. Samsung DeX comes preinstalled on the Book Flex and Book Ion.

Please note: Samsung DeX for PC is available on select devices (including Galaxy Fold, Galaxy A90, S8 series and above, Note9 series and above and Galaxy Tab S4 and above). Samsung DeX availability varies by region.

To get started:

1 Connect your Galaxy smartphone to your Galaxy Book via USB.
2 When the Samsung DeX interface appears on-screen, tap "Start now" on your smartphone.
3 You can now view your smartphone content on your Galaxy Book screen and interact with your phone using the touchpad.
