Connecting a Smartphone to a Smart TV

If you own a Samsung smart TV, you can use the Smart View feature to reflect the screen of your smartphone on the television. To accomplish this, you must purchase a ScreenBeam Mini2 wireless display receiver that connects to the HDMI connection on your television. Then, you must use the Quick Link option to connect your Samsung mobile to the ScreenBeam Mini2. To accomplish this on your Samsung touchscreen, pull down the notification bar and search for “Wireless Display Application.” Select Smart View or Quick Connect then. Then, your Samsung device will instantly scan for the ScreenBeam Mini2, and you will be able to enjoy screen mirroring.

To ensure that your Samsung television supports Smart View, activate the feature on your phone. You can locate the Smart View option in the Settings menu of your Samsung television. If this option is not available, hit the “Smart View” symbol. Additionally, you can enable sound and proximity sensing.

Using a USB cord, you may also link your Samsung smart TV to your phone. If your smartphone does not support MHL, you will want a micro USB to HDMI adaptor. After connecting the adapter, you can use the HDMI cable to connect your Samsung smartphone to the television. Afterward, you can stream the desired content to your television via the DLNA protocol. This protocol is supported by the majority of internet-connected televisions, allowing you to cast the content on your smartphone’s screen. However, Netflix and other providers do not yet support this protocol.

The Smart View feature of your Samsung smart TV is another choice for viewing material on your display. This tool allows you to access movies, files, pictures, and more on YouTube. If you already have a smart TV but no other method to display content on your television, this can be very beneficial.

Once the SmartThings software has been downloaded to your smartphone, you can connect your smartphone to your Samsung smart TV. This grants you access to all linked devices. Once integration has been accomplished, you may use your Samsung phone as a remote to navigate the many functions of your smart TV. Make sure your phone has an IR blaster so you can use the app to control your television.

First, confirm that your Samsung TV and Apple device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The second step is to enable AirPlay and disable the Firewall on your Samsung TV. You may always try updating your TV’s operating system using the Samsung TV app or remote if this does not work. If it does not resolve the issue, you may also try restarting the router or the devices.

After completing these steps, you can use AirPlay to reflect your smartphone’s display onto your Samsung television. You may also use the HDMI cable to connect your iPhone to your Samsung television. Nonetheless, you must ensure that your Samsung TV is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your smartphone.
