Wi-Fi Direct™ is a wireless technology that enables Wi-Fi Direct devices to establish a direct Wi-Fi connection over which the two can send and receive files. This means users on the go can print documents, share data, sync files, and display information from notebooks and netbooks, as well as from devices like smartphones and tablets. Products certified Wi-Fi Direct can connect to other wireless devices without joining a traditional wireless network or Wi-Fi® hotspot.

 

You can connect your phone with your TV to throw up family photos from your latest holiday, or send a contract directly to a collegues tablet for a signature - it's similar to Bluetooth connectivity and allows the transmission of files without the need for a Wi-Fi network or Bluetooth connection.  Some devices will use Bluetooth initially and switch to Wi-Fi direct when the file size is large enough and both devices allow the connection. 

 

To get started with sending files over Wi-Fi direct, follow the instructions below on connecting two mobile devices using Wi-Fi Direct:

 Wifi direct is one of the best features in terms of transferring files,images,etc. Its just like share it but when it comes to speed wifi direct is much better than share it. WIFI DIRECT is only available on Samsung Devices.
