Default Restart Wifi Direct

Good day

I accidentally forced closed wifi direct services via the app manager and can't get it to restart.

I can send stuff to my S4 but can't receive.

Please advise

A reboot might work.

Did you disable them or just closed? If you disabled, you have to enable it again to make it work

Go to: Settings - General - Application Manager - Swipe to top right window (Disabled) and look if you find it from there. If yes, then select it and tap "Enable"

Then reboot maby required(?)

I'm not sure can those even be disabled, but check this anyway, you wont lose anything
