Download apps in Samsung DeX

Phone docked on DeX Pad next to desktop

With Samsung DeX, you have the option of downloading apps right from your desktop. Just like on your phone, download apps from the Play Store or Galaxy Apps in DeX and enjoy them on a bigger screen.

Download apps from the Play Store

  1. Click Apps and then double click Play Store.

  2. Use the search bar to find the app you're looking for. For this example, we searched for Samsung Smart Home.

  3. Once the app is found, click the app to Install.

Download DeX-optimized apps

Some apps may feel a little crowded on a mobile screen, not anymore. DeX-optimized apps get all the elbow room they need. Sending an email, bolding text, or copying and pasting between apps can be done with a click of a mouse or a punch of a key. Let DeX open up the space and provide some much needed breathing room.

  1. From the DeX desktop, click Apps and then click Apps for DeX.

  2. Apps for DeX will list all the DeX-optimized apps that you can download. Select the desired app and click Install.

Download apps from Galaxy Apps

  1. From the DeX desktop, click Apps and then double click Galaxy Apps.

  2. Search and select the app you want to download, and then click INSTALL.
