When Samsung introduced Galaxy Note 10 phablet earlier this month, it also talked about improved Samsung DeX mode. It is a feature which allows users to use Android apps like using PC software. It has been around for at least a couple of years now but the new and improved version makes it more convenient to use.
The older versions of Samsung DeX requires a user to have a spare monitor with video input support. This is something that is not possible for all users all the time. It is the reason the new DeX integration on Galaxy Note 10 eliminates the problem as it can now be used on any Windows PC/laptop or Mac. The only things you will need are your Note 10 phablet, a PC/laptop, and a USB cable.
The new version works with the help of a Samsung DeX PC client that you will have to download and install on your PC. The next step is to launch the client and connect your Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy Note 10 Plus with the PC using a USB cable. You will be asked to grant data sharing permission on the phone and once you do that, you are good to go.
The Samsung DeX interface will be accessible in a separate window. It will show all the apps installed on your phablet along with notifications. You will be able to use supported apps like they are meant for PC usage. The DeX also supports drag and drop for transferring files between your PC and the phablet like you usually do between different folders on PC.
Here is a quick video showing the new Samsung DeX in action:
