You can connect your DeX-enabled device and the external display to extend the desktop session onto the external display. The external display must support the DeX protocol. You can either extend or display different content on the Samsung DeX screen and the external display.


  • This feature applies only to the Samsung DeX platform and not for ChromeOS or other Android devices.
  • This feature is only for Citrix desktop sessions and not for app sessions.
  • The Extend icon is available only on the DeX screen. Start the desktop session from the DeX screen.
  • The external display resolution depends on the Samsung DeX device, the external display, and the other hardware used.
