Use smart view on your phone to screen mirror

That photograph you took on your phone is stunning, but you know what would make it look even more amazing? Projecting it onto a big screen. With Smart View, you can wirelessly connect your phone to a compatible TV or Chromecast devices. Beam photos, videos, presentations, and games on a large screen to make them look bigger and better.

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service providers and software versions.

Connect to Your TV with Smart View

Make sure your TV is turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone. Some TVs may require you to switch inputs or turn on screen mirroring.

Make a big statement by projecting photos or vidoes on your TV. First, open the Quick Settings panel by swiping down from the top of the screen using two fingers. Then, swipe to and touch the Smart View icon.

Touch your TV from the list of Available devices. Depending on the TV, you may need to enter a PIN or allow access to complete the connection.

When you are done using Smart View, touch the Smart View icon on your phone, and then touch Disconnect.

Troubleshooting

Here are some troubleshooting tips if you are having some trouble with your phone:

  • If your phone will not display, it may need permission from the TV. Restart your phone and TV, and then try connecting again, making sure you select Allow when it displays on the TV.

  • If your screen keeps turning off, change the screen timeout settings on your phone. From Settings, search for and select Screen Timeout. From there, adjust the settings so your phone stays on for longer.

  • If the Smart View menu is minimized, touch the Smart View icon on your phone. The Smart View Control menu is only displayed on your phone.

  • If the phone's image looks small on your screen, you can make it a little bigger by changing the aspect ratio. On your phone, touch the Smart View icon, and then touch Phone aspect ratio. From there, you can choose your desired aspect ratio.
