How to Set Up Wi-Fi Direct on Galaxy S9 Plus
Wouldn’t it be great if you could effortlessly connect your Wi-Fi-enabled devices without messing around with access points and passphrases? That’s what Wi-Fi Direct has to offer and it’s time to gain more popularity these days. I know that the list of settings and features on your new Galaxy S9 Plus is quite extensive and some of them remained ignored for a rather long time. This should not be the case for this Wi-Fi Direct feature.
Almost all Android smartphones running Android 4.0 and above have Wi-Fi Direct functionality, so why not enjoying what the feature has to offer? While the systems’ user interfaces might vary, using this functionality is relatively simple, as well as unified across all devices.
It would be a shame to miss that on your Galaxy S9 Plus handset, so waste no more time! Wi-Fi Direct devices can connect to each other without having to go through an access point, so you don’t need to use your router. This is because Wi-Fi Direct devices establish their own ad-hoc networks and you get the chance to see which devices are available and choose which one you want to connect to.
