    I just got my Note 8. One of the features is missing from my phone but present on 3 of my friends phones.

    When you take out the S Pen and the menu appears, you scroll down to the button to add more shortcuts. It then gives you the option to add coloring (essentially a coloring book).

    Except mine simply doesn't have that. I've factory reset the phone and that didn't solve it. I have the companion app Pen.up but no S Pen option.

    Any ideas?

    So, your friends have an app called "coloring?"

    Have your friends downloaded a coloring book app.

    I've googled it, and in the screen grabs there is an app you can add to the S Pen shortcuts called "Coloring." I don't have that option on my phone either.

    When you pull out the s pen click on add shortcuts and then add it to the wheel.

    I just looked at adding a shortcut and I do see it! It adds PenUp, and gives you a bunch of blank coloring pages. Kinda cool!

    I opened the S Pen and touched the 'Add shortcuts' circle then added ''Coloring', like you said. It worked...does the carrier make a difference? I have Tmobile.

    Thanks for the tip, I hope that you get it worked out.

    The option of "Coloring" simply isn't available to add to the wheel. It isn't there.

    Perhaps the carrier does make a difference, but at this point who knows. I am with Verizon.

    I'm with Verizon, I don't see it either. Maybe Verizon has a paid coloring app they want us to pay for.

    I'm with Verizon and I have it. I haven't paid extra for it.

    To those who don't have it, did you uninstall PenUp? The coloring option brings you to that app. I have Verizon and I've used it for the past few days

    It's greyed out for me because I already have it on my wheel

    You simply have to add PENUP to the wheel and that's how you get the coloring

    I have PENUP, so that's simply not the answer.

    Hmm weird. You should still be able to color from the penup app

    You have to have Penup on the wheel with coloring to access it. I had left it off. Now it's available.

    I do have Penup on my wheel, but there still isn't a "coloring" option.
