    Could someone point me in the right direction about sharing content from my Lumia 920 with my Sony Bravia HX850 which supports wifi-direct. I have managed to establish a connection between them but totally clueless about how to share stuff(pics,videos).

    The 920 doesn't support DLNA yet, but Nokia said it is coming real soon.

    I remember using the wifi direct on droid phones for file transfers, but I think WP8 does not let me transfer files over Wifi-D, so what other use do i have of the wifi-d on my L920

    Where did you hear that the Lumia 920 had WiFi-direct?? The Lumia 920, or any Windows Phone for that matter, does not have WiFi- direct.

    DLNA works differently in that it uses WiFi networking but is not a direct WiFi connection between two devices.

    I was going to say those two were reading different books. Anyway WP8 does not have wifi-d as far as I know. DNLA is a protocol for sharing over wifi but it is not wifid.

    This one also says so. Im sure nokia will be using this real,soon. Probably a temporary limitation with wp8. Hope for the best.

    Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 certified for Bluetooth 4.0

    The hardware supports it, im pretty sure about.
    Interesting!! I knew about Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi channel bonding but those last 2 paragraphs and the Qualcomm link provided are surprises.

    So the question is how do we get Nokia to enable these features?

    Thanks for that!

    Good news ! Now you can share your Lumia 920 content (music, video and pictures) using the "Play to" application. This app is not available in the Store. However you can download it from Applications | Nokia Beta Labs by registering it its site.
    Works for me with my Sony Bravia Smart tv.

    yup music and video works to my Bravia TV as well. Video doesn't work for me however...Tries to go to the TV, but just hangs and then quits. Just a beta product, so not worried. Pretty slick app. Super easy to setup and operate.

    I was able to stream video with sound, music, and static pictures from my 920 to my Samsung TV via Playto, it all worked, only video paused sometimes due (I assume) to down/upload speeds(?) - although DLNA films from e.g. my PC to TV don't do that.. still, good considering that it's beta product.. :)
