Use the Samsung Smart View app

Last modified : Apr 04. 2019

It's possible (and fun!) to wirelessly beam content from your smartphone directly to a compatible Samsung Smart TV. Show friends and family your holiday photos or playback videos from your device to your TV without a mess of cables. The Samsung Smart View app is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, and will allow you to stream movies and photos from your phone or tablet directly to your Samsung TV within the same Wi-Fi network. If you don't have a Wi-Fi network set up, please check out the page on What is Wi-Fi direct. Compatible Wi-Fi direct devices can stream to most Samsung TVs.

See the step-by-step instructions below to set up the Smart View app for the first time, and how to select what content to share with your Smart TV.
