Use the Intelligent Mode Features of Your TV

You already know you have a smart TV, but do you know just how smart it really is? When your TV is in Intelligent Mode, it can actually analyze its surroundings, as well as the program you’re watching and your usage patterns, so it provides the best possible viewing experience. Whether you’re watching a cartoon on a sunny day, or an action movie where you want to hear every last sound effect, your TV will automatically fine-tune its settings.

Note: Intelligent Mode is only supported on certain QLED models.

Intelligent Mode

Maybe you’re watching a horror movie in a dim room. If you turn on Intelligent Mode, it will detect the amount of ambient light and adjust the backlight brightness, so you can see what’s around every dark corner. Here’s how to turn it on or off:

Press the Home button on your TV remote, and then navigate to and select Settings > General > Intelligent Mode Settings. Select Intelligent Mode to turn it on or off. The following settings are adjusted in Intelligent Mode:

  • Adaptive Brightness: Automatically adjusts the backlight brightness by using ambient light sensors to detect the ambient light level.

  • Adaptive Sound: Optimizes the sound based on the viewing environment and audio components of what you’re watching.

  • Adaptive Volume: Automatically adjusts to a specific volume level while you’re watching TV.

    Note: This feature is only available when the sound output on the TV is set to TV Speaker, and may not be supported by some apps or external devices.
