Gear 360 - How to connect the Samsung Gear 360 and mobile device via Wi-Fi Direct



Q : How do I connect the Samsung Gear 360  and mobile device via Wi-Fi Direct?


A:  After launching the Samsung Gear 360 app on your mobile device, tap 88 or the GEAR 360 tab.


    The Wi-Fi feature on your mobile device will be activated, and then your Samsung Gear 360 and

    mobile device will be automatically connected via Wi-Fi Direct.

    If your Samsung Gear 360 and mobile device are not connected via Bluetooth, they will first be

    connected via Bluetooth, and then connected via Wi-Fi Direct.





Notices for using Wi-Fi

Ensure that your Samsung Gear 360 and the other Bluetooth device are within the Bluetooth connection range (5 m).

The distance may vary depending on the environment the devices are used in.

Ensure that there are no obstacles between the Samsung Gear 360 and a connected device, including human bodies, walls, corners, or fences.

If a mobile device connects to the Samsung Gear 360 via Wi-Fi Direct while it is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the mobile device’s screen may flicker due to the limited capability of the Wi-Fi network.

Using a mobile device near other devices which are connected to the Wi-Fi network may affect the signal strength and cause the screen to flicker.

The transfer time may take longer depending on the Wi-Fi connection status and file size.
