  • I wish the Surface line supported Wi-Fi direct because I would love to try DMC. It has to be more reliable than Your Phone.
  • Not sure what W-Fi direct is, but all of the functions of Dell Mobile Connect are working on my Surface Pro 5. Check out Kevin Stratvert on YouTube. He has a recent post on how to make it work.
