You can now use Amazon WorkSpaces with Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ thanks to the new Samsung DeX station. Amazon recently shared some information about the new tool in a blog post.
What is Samsung DeX?
The Samsung DeX station is a dock that is compatible with Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. It holds your phone up while you use Amazon WorkSpaces or other tools. And it has USB connectors for your keyboard and mouse. Or you can communicate with those items via Bluetooth.
Additionally, the device includes a charging station, cooling fan, HDMI, and ethernet ports so that you can connect your device to a number of different add-ons, making it an acceptable replacement for your full work station if you’re traveling or working remotely.
