Using the Quick Connect to Connect Your Samsung Galaxy Note Edge with nearby devices

Quick connect simplifies sharing content with other devices. Quick connect will find other mobile devices, smart TVs, and Miracast™ devices (such as Chromecast™ or Amazon™ Fire TV Stick), and you can share your screen or send pictures, music, videos, and more. Quick connect will 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. Some TVs require a connection to the same Wi-Fi® network to share content. Important! When Quick connect is turned on, other devices will be able to see your device and send sharing requests.
