Mirror and Cast your Phone to your Samsung TV

Screen mirroring is a technology that allows the screen of a mobile device to be transmitted to the TV screen as it is and viewed on a large screen of the TV. The SmartThings app and Smart View allow you to quickly and easily connect to your Samsung Smart TV, but you can also connect via a Wi-Fi or HDMI connection

To mirror the screen wirelessly, Wi-Fi connection is essential to your TV. For non-smart TVs, you will need a casting device such as a Samsung AllShare Cast, Chromecast or Amazon Firestick. Follow the guide below to learn more.
