[No Root]Install Galaxy Note 8 Live Drawing on other Samsung devices running Nougat and above


Until and unless the next Samsung Note flagship arrives with all its glory. We could say that the latest and best ever Note device we’ve now in the market is none other than the Galaxy Note 8. Gorgeous slate-like design and the S-Pen are what strikes on our mind foremost whenever we hear the name of it. Equally tempting is the Live Drawing feature that debuted with the phablet, perhaps elevating the utility of S-Pen even further.

Samsung Live Message

Ever since the Note 8 has been officially released. Handful of Samsung mid-rangers as well as the new S-flagship duos have arrived somewhere around in gone days. But, the fact is that none of them boarded the Live Drawing feature out-of-the-box. Even the Galaxy Note FE was kept away from it. The reason may be Samsung likes to keep the Live drawing exclusive to Note 8 and its successors only.
