Samsung makes video calls more seamless with DeXSamsung shows off DeX, which lets you connect a Galaxy Note 8 to your computer by plugging it into a dock.
Full disclosure. I'm a little obsessed with Dex. It's super cool cuz it lets you harness the power of your Galaxy device, extending it to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. This is what I travel with. No laptop, no bulky bag, Let's say I'm on the High Line, and I need to talk to Suzanne about our no date presentation. We've partnered with Zoom to make video conferencing completely seemless. So, I can just open up the Zoom app, and start the meeting with Suzanne. [BLANK_AUDIO] I love this flexibility, where I can be doing this while I'm strolling down the high line. There she is. Hey, Suzanne. [BLANK_AUDIO] Hey, John. Hey, I'm just actually getting back to my desk here. So let me just dock into the deck station. [BLANK_AUDIO] What's great is cuz I started that meeting while I was walking down the high line on my phone. When I'm back at my decks all I have to do is open up the app and the video conference is still connected. [INAUDIBLE] [APPLAUSE] Pretty cool, didn't have to rejoin, reconnect. [APPLAUSE] So Susan I think I owe you that updated photo of the Note8 but I'd like your help with that. All right let's do it. All right, let me just share you me screen. So you can see what's going on Wow, that's so cool. I can see your screen and me on your screen. Nice. So, pull up Adobe Lightroom. Go to the photo that we need to edit here. All right, so good looking photo but I think it's a bit dark. So let's do a selective edit. And, wow, with the mouse it's actually really easy. That's cool. So, Suzanne, I might need your help with letting me know when the exposure looks right to you. Okay. That looks great right there I think Right there, perfect. And just to finish it off let me do a little bit of a crop at the right angle here. I think that's about good I'll save that. Suzanne how does that look? Awesome. Thanks so much for your help. Awesome, thanks Suzanne, we'll chat with you later. See ya! Now do you see why I love using DeX all the time? Super simple, super easy. [APPLAUSE]
