What is DeX in Wireless Mode?
If you aren't familiar with DeX, it gives you a version of a full-fledged desktop in palm of your hand that can be utilized on a larger screen such as a monitor or TV. Thanks to Samsung and a technology called Miracast, this productivity miracle is now a reality without the wires.
What is Miracast?
Many people are familiar with sending things from their phone to a tv using Chromecast, and Miracast works similarly. Introduced by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2012, the technology allows you to send everything from audio to movies wirelessly from one certified device to another. There is a wide range of products that utilize Miracast for various functions ranging from car audio head units to speakers and phones to televisions. It's in the latter that DeX in wireless mode happens.
