Display your Galaxy tablet on a TV with Smart View

Galaxy tablet streaming a picture to a TV screen

Smart View makes displaying your tablet's screen on a television screen fast and easy. With this feature, the tablet screen can be mirrored  to compatible devices like a Chromecast, Fire Stick, or smart TVs that support Miracast technology like Samsung smart TVs. Display photos, videos, documents, and more to a bigger screen, so everyone doesn't have to crowd around your tablet.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Smart View

There are no wires involved when you use Smart View. You just need your tablet, a Samsung Smart TV, and an internet connection, and you'll be ready to start beaming.

  1. First, make sure your TV is turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your tablet. Some televisions may require you to switch inputs or turn on screen mirroring.

  2. Using two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick Settings panel. Swipe to and tap the Smart View icon. If you've customized Quick Settings, you can restore the icon if it is missing.

  3. Depending on the TV, you may need to enter a PIN or allow access to complete the connection.

  4. To stop sharing your screen, tap the floating Smart View icon on your tablet's screen, and then tap Disconnect.
