Samsung abandons DeX development for macOS

Samsung DeX

Samsung DeX transforms the software of a Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a desktop-like user interface when we connect a monitor and keyboard or when we use computers managed by macOS or Windows through the Samsung Dex application.

If you use it regularly and use a Mac we have bad news, since Samsung has announced that will stop updating the DeX application for Mac computers and Windows 7 managed computers. Windows 10 and Windows 11 computers will be able to continue using the application without problems and receive updates.

The Korean company has started showing an ad through the app informing you that the support for the app It will end from January 2022.

DeX for PC service for Mac / Windows 7 operating system will be discontinued as of January 2022. For any questions or requests for assistance, please contact us via Samsung Members.

Fortunately, that does not mean that the application stops working, since the application will continue to work but we will not be able to download it from the Samsung website once the support ends. If you use it regularly, and do not want to stop using it while using macOS, the best thing you can do is download the application and keep it safely to avoid accidentally deleting it. You can also continue using it by connecting it to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Samsung I had planned to release a version for Linux, but before launching the first beta, he announced that he was leaving the project. The reason why Samsung has abandoned the development of this application is probably because it has not reached a solid user base that makes it worthwhile to maintain and update the application.
