Smart View allows direct device-to-device connections using Wi-Fi Direct, without having to connect to a Wi-Fi network.

Important: Your television needs to be a Samsung television or a television compatible with Smart View or Screen Mirroring.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Connect to your television with Smart View

Note: Make sure your television is turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your device before turning on Smart View. Some televisions and devices may require you to switch inputs or turn on screen mirroring.

5. To stop sharing your screen, touch the Smart View control icon and then Disconnect.
