In the passage Samsung Kies: Manage Samsung Devices via Computer, we've mentioned two ways to connect Samsung phones to Kies: USB and Wi-Fi connection. The first method is very simple and I guess all of you know how to do it. So, this article aims at introducing how to connect Galaxy devices to Samsung Kies wirelessly. In the following part, we will illustrate some detail steps on bridging Android to computer via Wi-Fi.
  • Part 1. Connect Samsung Device to Kies(Only for Android 6.0 and earlier)
  • Part 2. Connect Samsung to PC with TunesGo (Supports all Android version)

Part 1: Connect Samsung Device to Kies(Only for Android 6.0 and earlier)

Step 1Select Wireless Connection in Kies
When you run the software in PC and enter the main interface, you will see two connection options. One is USB cable connection, the other is Wireless connection. Select the latter one.
Step 2Set Wi-Fi Connection on Samsung Device
Firstly, you should make your Galaxy phone connect to the same wireless network as that of Samsung Kies. Then, go to the 'Settings' > 'More Settings' > 'Kies via Wi-Fi' in your Samsung Galaxy.
When the device successfully detected the computer, the name of the PC will appear on the phone screen. A confirmation code will also show on the phone screen as soon as you choose the name of the computer.
Free Meanwhile, Wi-Fi connection request will pop up on your computer. Then enter the passkey shown on the handset in the request box on the computer, the device will soon connect to Kies. The whole process will take a bit longer since connection between device and Kies via Wi-Fi is not always successful.
Note: The function of transferring data from one Samsung Galaxy to another is not workable under wireless connection. If you want to figure out the reason, you can access to the tutorial on How to Transfer Data in between Samsung Devices.
Read up here, you may notice that bridge Galaxy device with Kies wirelessly is not complex. However, unsuccessful connection happens now and then, and I tried several times to make it work. To tackle this issue, you can check the Kies Help and find out the step-by-step solution or try to use the guide on part 2.

Part 2: Connect Samsung to PC with TunesGo(Support all Android version)

Kies can only support Android Marshmallow 6.0 or early version of Samsung to connect. But if you own a Samsung Galaxy S7/ S8/Note 8 with Android Oreo 8.0/7.0, you may fail to connect with the guide in part 1. Now, you are recommended to try TunesGo program, which allows users to connect Samsung to computer without any limits.
After you successfully connect Samsung to PC, you can now continue your task with TunesGo program:
1. Back up Android files to PC
2. Manage files in Android such as import & export files directly from/to computer, send messages to several contacts at a time, download and convert video files, install and uninstall apps from/to Android and detect, merge or de-duplicate contacts.
3. Transfer data between Android and iPhone/iTunes/PC/Mac easily without data loss.

You can connect your Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to your computer in two ways so that you can share files between them. The first is to connect the USB cable that came with the Tab 3 to a free USB port on your computer. If your computer uses a wireless network, you can connect the Tab 3 to that wireless network and then connect to Kies on your computer using your Wi-Fi connection.

Note that for you to use Kies with your computer and Tab 3, you must have Kies installed on your computer before you can continue. If you don’t have Kies installed, you can download the app for Windows or Mac at http://www.samsung.com/in/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP.

Access the Kies Via Wi-Fi option by tapping the Settings icon on the Home screen. Within the Settings screen, tap More Settings in the settings list on the left side of the screen. The Kies Via Wi-Fi option appears within the Kies section of the Wireless and Networks settings list, as shown in Figure 1.

Start setting up Kies by tapping the Kies Via Wi-Fi option in the list. The Attention window shown in Figure 2 reminds you that if you connect your Tab 3 to your computer through an unsecured Wi-Fi connection, then unauthorized people can access your network. Continue with the setup process by tapping the OK button.

Figure 2Tap the OK button to continue setting up Kies through your Wi-Fi connection

Refer to Chapter 3 in My Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 if you need to set up your Wi-Fi network. If your Tab 3 is connected to a Wi-Fi network already, the Tab 3 connects with your computer through the network. The Kies Via Wi-Fi window shown in Figure 3 informs you that you can now sync with your computer through the network.

You can disconnect from your Kies Wi-Fi connection in two ways. First, tap the Disconnect button in the window, as shown in Figure 3. The other way to disconnect is to press the Back button. You can return to the Home screen by pressing the Home button.

Figure 3After you connect, disconnect by tapping the Disconnect button

Now launch the Kies app on your computer. The app takes a few seconds to recognize your Tab 3 and then shows the Tab 3 connection within the Connected Devices list on the left side of the Kies window. A pop-up box appears below the menu bar at the top of the window (see Figure 4) that tells you how to transfer content from a non-Samsung phone to your computer using Kies. You can close the box by tapping the Close icon at the bottom-right corner of the box.

Figure 4Close the pop-up box by tapping the Close icon in the box

Change Settings

Information about your device appears on the Basic Information tab, as shown in Figure 5. This information includes

  • The device name, which in this example is my name and the device ID (SM-T310).
  • The amount of internal and external memory taken up on the device and the total amount of internal and external memory available.
  • The latest firmware version available for the Tab 3 and the current version installed on your Tab 3. Firmware is software permanently programmed on your Tab 3 to perform basic and vital functions such as resetting the operating system to original factory specifications.
  • Options for changing auto-sync settings, photo transfer settings, and the image size for photos saved in the Contacts app on your Tab 3.

Figure 5You can change synchronization and photo settings in the Options section

Change synchronization settings by clicking the Sync tab. On the Sync tab shown in Figure 6, you can change what and when to sync your Tab 3 with Kies, including

  • Sync all items from the Tab 3 to your computer automatically when you connect the devices together.
  • Select all items to sync by clicking the Select All Items check box.
  • In the Personal Information section, sync your contacts, calendar, and tasks with Microsoft Outlook if you have Outlook installed on your computer.
  • In the Multimedia section, sync music, photos, videos, and podcasts on your Tab 3 with your computer.

When you finish changing your settings, you can sync your Tab 3 with your computer immediately by clicking the Sync button.

Transfer Tab 3 Files to Your PC

If you want to sync only specific files on your Tab 3 with your computer, you can click on one of the five options within the Connected Devices list on the left side of the window: Contacts, Music, Photos, Videos, and Podcast. For this article, I’ll illustrate how to sync one or more photos between the Tab 3 and my computer.

Start by clicking Photos in the Connected Devices list. A list of photos stored on the Tab 3 appears in the list on the right side of the window, as shown in Figure 7. Each photo in the list contains the filename, the resolution information (if any), the date the photo was taken (if any), the date the file was last modified, and the size of the photo file.

Figure 7Select a photo by clicking the check box to the left of the file name

After you select a photo by clicking the check box in the file list, you can save the photo to your computer by clicking the Save Selected Photos to PC button above the list. The icon within the button looks like a floppy disk (if you remember what those were) and the button appears to the right of the Add Photo Files (the button has a plus sign) and the Delete Selected Photo buttons. Then you can select the folder to which you want to save the photo in the Select Folder window.

Transfer Files on Your PC to the Tab 3

You can also transfer files from your PC to the Tab 3 using Kies; files are categorized into several different areas within the Library list on the left side of the window (underneath the Connected Devices list). Kies refers to your default folders on your computer that store your contacts, music, and other multimedia files.

For example, you can add photos to your Tab 3 by clicking Photos in the Library list and then clicking the Add Photos button on the right side of the window (see Figure 8).

Figure 8Add a photo to your Tab 3 by clicking the Add Photos button

Now you can open one or more photos from your computer’s default photos folder in the Open window. After you add a photo, a thumbnail image of the photo appears within the By Date tab, as shown in Figure 9. You can add information to or edit the photo by clicking the photo; a pop-up menu appears that allows you to add the photo to your favorites list, add a tag to the photo, rotate the photo, and edit the photo.

Figure 9The photo you added appears in the By Date tab

When you click the photo, the Transfer to Device button above the list becomes active. Transfer the photo to your Tab 3 by clicking the Transfer to Device button and then clicking Internal Memory or External Memory; the latter transfers the photo to the SD card installed on your Tab 3. When the transfer is complete, a message in the status bar at the bottom of the window informs you that the file transferred to the Tab 3 successfully.

Checking Out the Menu

The menu bar at the top of the window has five options for performing different tasks within Kies: File, Edit, View, Tools, and Help. For this article, we’ll look at the File and Tools menus because those may be the two menus you use most often in Kies.

Within the File menu shown in Figure 10, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Add a file or folder to a Library folder on your computer.
  • Add a file or folder to the Tab 3.
  • When you click Music either under the Connected Devices or Library lists, you can create a custom music playlist from the music files stored on your Tab 3 or your computer, respectively.
  • If Kies recognizes that you have iTunes and/or Windows Media Player installed, you can use Kies to transfer iTunes and Windows Media Player files to your computer.
  • Add multimedia files to your computer automatically when you connect your Tab 3 to your computer using Kies.
  • Open the selected file on your computer, which in this example is Windows.
  • View the properties of your selected file.

Figure 10The File menu allows you to add files and folders including your iTunes playlist and other multimedia files

Within the Tools menu shown in Figure 11, you can perform more tasks, including

  • Recover your firmware in an emergency in case your Tab 3 memory is damaged and you can’t view the Android operating system when you start the device.
  • Upgrade your Tab 3 firmware to the latest version.
  • Troubleshoot (and hopefully resolve) any connection problems between your Tab 3 and your computer.
  • Transfer data from a non-Samsung device such as an iPhone to your computer using Kies. This happens only if Kies recognizes that your non-Samsung device is connected to your computer using a Wi-Fi connection or a USB cable.
  • Change the Kies app preferences.

Disconnect and Reconnect

As discussed earlier, if you want to disconnect from your Kies Wi-Fi connection when you finish transferring data between your computer and Tab 3, tap the Disconnect button on the Tab 3, as shown in Figure 12.

After you disconnect, you can reconnect to Kies through the Wi-Fi connection by tapping the Wi-Fi connection name; in Figure 13, that’s the BCG connection. If you want to scan for other Wi-Fi networks through which you can connect your Tab 3 to your computer, tap the Scan button. After you do, more networks appear within the Kies via Wi-Fi window, so you can connect to the new Wi-Fi network by tapping the network name in the list.

That concludes our quick tour of Kies, so go ahead and explore the Kies app and see what else Kies can do to help keep your favorite music, photos, videos, and more on your Tab 3 synchronized on your computer (and vice versa). Then you can access those multimedia files no matter if you’re at home using your computer or on the go with your Tab 3.
