How to Activate Group Sharing on Your Samsung Galaxy S4
You can share the view on your phone's screen to other people's screens by using Group Play. Group Play not only allows you to share your screen content with others, but it also enables you to interact with the content. Think of this as an application that allows you to extend your phone's screen to other people's phones so you can watch the same screen at the same time. You can interact with the content by touching your device's screen, and other people connected can see the activities. Group Play also allows you to share pictures, music files and play games with your friends.
To use Group Play, follow the procedures below:
- 6If you turn off mobile AP, the current session will stop, and you'll need to put the devices back-to-back to connect them. You can check on the option so you won't see the message again. Tap on the "OK" button when you are done.You will be shown a message telling you that your phone has been set as the mobile access point (AP).
- 8Whether you choose music, documents or games - each will have a corresponding list to choose from. Tap on the square beside the file to choose it as the file to play through Group Play. You can also tap on "Select All Options" to select all files.You will then be shown the list of the music files on your phone.
