Connect to Wi-Fi on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Find a hotspot? Turn on your Wi-Fi and connect to a Wi-Fi network to save your mobile data usage charges. In case you didn't know, Wi-Fi is a wireless connectivity feature that lets you connect Wi-Fi enabled devices to share information or to connect to the internet. If you'd like another way to connect devices to your phone, you can use Bluetooth.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
