Samsung will soon no longer let you use your phone via your PC or Mac via DeX

For several years now, Samsung has had a handy software tool called DeX that makes it easy to carry around a desktop operating system via your Samsung smartphone. Unfortunately, some of its functionality is being discontinued.

Samsung quietly notes this on its webpage. The download page simply states, “The DeX for PC service for Mac/Windows 7 will be discontinued from January 2022.” Further, there is no information as to why this will happen. The announcement means that the function that allows you to connect your phone (with the DeX operating system) to a PC and use files and apps from your phone via that route will disappear.

Apparently the entire service will not disappear, you will still be able to use it by connecting your smartphone to a separate monitor via a docking station. However, using a fully functional PC does not seem to be possible from January onwards. The Connectivity feature for Macs and PCs may continue to work if you’ve already installed it, but you won’t receive any more updates.
