How do I Use the Quick Connect Feature to Connect My Samsung Galaxy Tab S2? (SM-T818V)

Quick connect simplifies sharing content and even your screen with other devices. 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.

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


Finding 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.


  2. Turn on Quick connect from the Notification Panel.


If Quick connect is not installed, check the following settings:

  • Make sure the device you are connecting to has the Bluetooth feature turned on and the Bluetooth visibility is 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.

Sharing Content with Quick Connect

  1. To open the Notification Panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.



  2. Touch Quick connect.



  3. Touch START.



  4. Touch the device you want to connect to.



  5. Touch Share content.



  6. Touch the desired content type. For this example, touch Image.

  8. The device you are sharing with will be asked to DECLINE or ACCEPT the files.



  9. After the files have been accepted and downloaded, they can be accessed from the app in which they are used, such as the Gallery app. You can also access them from the Notification Panel by swiping down from the top of the screen and touching the File received notification.
