    Probably you're connected via DLNA. Your Z10 acting as a media server and your TV accessing its contents.
    Can you explain what exactly is the wifi direct you guys are talking about.

    I'm pretty sure Wifi direct is supported. Main purpose is for transferring files after an NFC connection is established like s-beam on Samsung phones.
    Mike said no.
    And currently, our devices set up a BT connection instead of using direct.

    Z10 will not get Wi-Fi Direct with OS 10.2.

    What should I believe? Michael Clewley or the bottom of the Display Settings page on my Z10 (10.2.0.1725)?:

    Near as I can guess.

    It's a PnP UDP protocol to let your phone share it's display with smart tvs, dvd players and display boxes.

    I.e. U can magically share your display on your TV to show your wife a funny cartoon you found on your phone.

    And noticeably bigger transfer speeds between two devices.

    One of the dangers of following the rumors is the disappointment when features you hope will come - don't...
    Hopefully my Z doesn't end up in the PlayBook pile. First Miracast, then Wifi direct then usb. I know nothing official until it's, well, official but c'mon, I think BlackBerry owners could use a bit of a boost.

    That's where I'm confused, how is that different then sharing with your TV via DLNA?

    I think it's like screen sharing. So you can share everything you do from games to movies to browsing?

    But I do love DLNA.

    Ok, played around a little with it. Just my music, pictures and videos I took goes on TV wireless. I tried amazon instant video, no option to play on another device. Now I see the difference, so wifi direct performs like if I had a cable connected to my phone, but of course without the wire.

    It sounds neat. It makes me wish my TV was newer. Oooooh I wonder if my significant other would notice a new tv..

    Miracast is the function that works like wireless hdmi. Wifi direct is mostly used as a transfer protocol.

    Hi,

    I can not find the Wifi direct settings under my Z10 Wifi setting. On a Z30 these setting are under the Wifi menu. I Install 10.2.0.424 which is official release by BlackBerry. I have a Z10 STL 100-2.

    Wi-Fi Direct will not be coming to the Z10.

    Download Noted, a 5-star rated, native BB10 memo pad app.
