Check your phone's notifications in Samsung DeX

Man giving presentation with Samsung Dex

In any given day, you use multiple devices like your phone and laptop or PC separately. But when you have work to do, you connect your phone to your computer's larger screen through Samsung DeX. That way, when you're working on a presentation or just playing a game, you can check your phone's messages and alerts at a glance without interrupting the action.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Check notifications in Samsung DeX

When you're working (or playing) hard, you don't have time to disconnect your phone and check if you received any important messages. There's no need with Samsung DeX, because all your notifications will be right there in plain sight.

Any time you want to check if you received a text or important alert, you can do so using the Notification Panel. It's located at the bottom of the screen towards the center, and it's your ticket to accessing notifications on your phone.

Samsung Dex Notification Panel

Here are the controls you can use:

  • Collapse: Tap Collapse (it looks like an arrow) to collapse or expand the menu so you can see more or less of the available options.

  • Notification alert: Tap to view details about your latest notification. Keep in mind this icon will appear different for every app.

  • Samsung DeX: Tap the Samsung DeX icon to switch to screen mirroring or the fast charging option in Samsung DeX.

  • Notifications: Tap Notifications, and all of your phone's notifications will display in a list. You can also manage your notifications by tapping Notification settings and adjusting your desired options, or tap Clear to clear your notifications.
