Samsung Smart View: How to connect your Galaxy smartphone to your Smart TV | next pit

Smart View is a feature that allows you to perform screen mirroring on your Samsung Smart TV from your Galaxy smartphone or tablet. In this tutorial, NextPit will show you how to connect your smartphone to your TV to view your videos, photos and even play your games on a big screen.

With one of the largest ecosystems in the world, from smartwatches to giant screens over 100 inches, Samsung has a clear advantage when it comes to synergies between different product categories.

The connected home ecosystem Smart Things is one of the results, with the ability to remotely control devices on many displays, TVs, smartphones, tablets and even refrigerators. Even before that, there’s Smart View, a feature that allows content to be mirrored (or projected) from one device to another.

Smart View is Samsung’s version of Miracast, which is known by many names depending on each manufacturer’s implementation. With it you can duplicate the smartphone screen on a compatible TV or monitor. Previously, this feature required an application, which is now installed by default on Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

How to use Smart View to connect your Galaxy smartphone to your Samsung Smart TV

To use Smart View, you need a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet and a Miracast-enabled TV or display. This also works with TVs from LG, Sony, Philips, Panasonic and other brands. Another thing, the devices must be connected to the same WiFi network, but I saw that the app suggested me a neighbor’s TV that is connected to a different network.

To use Samsung Smart View to mirror your smartphone screen to your TV, just follow these steps:

  1. Open the menu from quick settings (by swiping down from the top of the screen)
  2. Press the button SmartView
  3. Wait for the screens to be detected and tap the screen you want
    1. Some TVs may require you to open a pairing menu. See the manual for instructions
  4. Confirm the screen sharing by tapping it start now

That’s it for this Smart View User Guide. Remember that you can adjust the screen aspect ratio to fit it better by going to the Smart View options menu. And if you position the smartphone in landscape (horizontal) mode, the changes will be reflected on the TV, provided that the auto-rotate function is activated.

Also note that some TV models are compatible with the Tap View feature, which initiates smartphone mirroring by simply tapping (lightly) on the smartphone screen. Another option is to initiate screen mirroring using the Smart Things app. Finally, some devices offer the possibility of using Samsung DeX to display the smartphone on the TV, either wirelessly or with a certified cable.
