Does anybody know how to do this?
You have to be sharing the stuff on your network. I only share videos and music on my PC. Open the stock music or video player and on the top you can scroll (flick) over to nearby devices. Press that and if you have your files shared correctly on your PC you should see them. I use this quite a bit.
Since I'm adding to this thread.. the coolest feature that I found thanks to this thread is Alarm Briefing. It's awesome. My phone says "Wake your lazy ass up" every morning, then says the time, my events for the day, and the current weather, then my alarm goes off. I did notice that the new google text to voice update in the Play Store broke this feature but uninstalling the update fixed that.
I wondered why my phone had quit cussing at me in the morning. I have been missing it. Lol.
Lol. I hope Google fixes it. I would like to be able to update that but the alarm briefing is too cool to go with out.
i like the turn over phone to reject calls..
save bill collectors phone numbers to one contact. name contact "cobra charmers"
"cobra charmers are calling"
(flips over phone
I remember when I first discovered multi-window, one of the most useful features a phone could have
I love screen mirroring. My blue ray player has miracast so I can mirror my phone to my TV. Cool for games web browsing and downloaded movies.
When you are on the internet and have a page with a lot of text, look back up at the box that the URL is in for a green box with an R in it. Tap the green box and it opens the page fitted to the screen so no scrolling back and forth. This does not work for all web pages. I found in while reading emails...the Reader box was there and I tapped it just to see what it was. The text size was also larger in the reader screen.
If this was mentioned in the previous 34 pages, my apologies. Tried to see if it was, but way too many posts!
If you have a Samsung SmartTV, you can use Samsung Link for everything. It does everything Chromecast does and much more. They really integrated everything to work smoothly.
Also, to throw in something most everyone can do, if you use ES File Explorer, you can browse files on your PC from your phone.
