Recently, I tried to transfer some files between a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. While WiFi direct had worked very easily earlier, this time, I hit a roadblock.

The Prime was able to ‘see’ the S4 Mini, was not able to connect. After multiple tries, I noted an additional setting on the S4 Mini – ‘Nearby devices’ – that controls visibility of your device. Once I switched that on, WiFi Direct went through without a hitch.

Now, for one task, I have to toggle two buttons.
