HomeGroup and Tablets

Hi All,
Silly question I suppose but here goes. Can a Tablet be added to my homegroup of PC & LapTop and if yes what is needed please, I have an ipad2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Any help or advice would be great

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

If the tablet has Windows 7 installed then you should be able to add it to a Homegroup. Only Windows 7 machines can be added to a Homegroup. :)
