One feature listed for the Tizen 3.0 update was the ability to control PowerPoint.

 

  • PPT Controller: Command the audience and the presentation with the Gear S3 PPT controller

 

However, I am unable to find "PPT Controller" on the watch or in the Galaxy Store. I did a factory reset (due to other issues after the update) but no such app was installed by default. Where is this "PPT Controller" app?

I finally found "PPT Controller" in the Galaxy Apps store. It paired correctly with my Windows 10 PC. Driver installed automatically. So perhaps Windows 7 isn't new enough to have the driver built in.

Thanks for reaching out, I know it can be frustrating to want to use a feature that is difficult to find. What device are you attempting to use the Powerpoint controller with?

Hi.

Related with this topic I have a different issue.

I was able to download the Controller PPT from the Galaxy App Store. The problem I have is to connect my Gear S3 Classic to the PC (Win 7) via bluetooth.

Actually it's connected and I can, for example, change tracks in a music player via Gear S3. But I get and error during the bluetooth installation of the device about the driver. So the PPT controller doesn't pair with the PC. 

Is there the bluetooth driver of Gaer S3 available for the download?? I cannot find it...

 

Thanks!
