    With Samsung DeX, you can turn any place into a workplace. The DeX dock enables you to connect your Galaxy S8/S8+ to a monitor, keyboard and mouse for a desktop experience powered by your phone. Just plug your phone into the DeX Station to use apps, review documents, and set or check notifications on a desktop interface. The same emails, photos and files on your phone are now more accessible in a desktop environment.

      Design your DeX-compatible app for a robust Android experience. Samsung DeX is an extension of Android N multi-window mode. There are no new Samsung APIs that need to be used to launch apps in Samsung DeX; however, apps must adhere to Android N multi-window standards to open in desktop mode. Desktop mode includes all of the advanced, multitasking features built in to the Samsung DeX UI.
