Connect to a TV with Smart View
Smart View lets you mirror what's displayed on your phone to your TV. So take a better look at those artsy photos you took, a viral video your friend sent you, or the season finale of your favorite TV show. Follow the steps below to learn how to get connected.
Before you begin, make sure your phone and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. After, open the Quick Settings panel. To do this, use two fingers and swipe down from the top of the screen. Swipe left to the second panel and then touch Smart View.
If required, touch the device you want to display your screen on. The connection is usually established automatically if there is only one compatible device available. Depending on the TV, you will need to enter a PIN or allow access to complete the connection. To stop sharing your screen, touch Disconnect.
Note: If your screen keeps turning off, change your screen timeout settings by navigating to Settings > Display > Screen Timeout. If the Smart View Control is minimized, touch the Smart View icon to open the menu. Smart View Control is only displayed on your phone.
