Smart Stay Feature on Your Galaxy Tab S

The Smart Stay 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.

Smart Stay

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

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps > Settings > DEVICE > Display.  

  2. Touch Smart stay or mark the checkbox to turn on the feature.    

  3. Touch OK.  

  4. Smart Stay 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.
