Samsung DeX is one of the best pieces of productivity software that the company has ever made. It transforms your smartphone or tablet software into a desktop-like UI when connected to a bigger display (monitor or TV). It even works when you connect it to a computer running macOS or Windows, provided that it has the Samsung DeX software installed.

If you regularly use DeX on your computer, there might be some bad news for you. Samsung has announced that it will stop supporting DeX on computers running macOS and Windows 7 (or older OS versions) starting next year. Users running Samsung DeX on macOS have already started seeing pop-ups regarding the company’s plans.

The South Korean firm has also updated its DeX-related webpage to mention, “The DeX for PC service for Mac/Windows 7 OS will be terminated as of January 2022. For any further questions or assistance, please contact us through Samsung Members.

Users who already have DeX installed on their computer can continue to use it, but the company will no longer update it or support it. Windows 7 users can upgrade their computer to Windows 10 or the recently-released Windows 11 operating system.

macOS users would no longer be able to download DeX software on their computers. If they have a monitor, they can use a DeX dock or a USB-C to HDMI cable to connect their Galaxy smartphone or tablet and use DeX. The company had released a beta version of DeX for Linux but terminated it without ever releasing a stable version.
