Control media and devices on your Note10

Note 10 on table with Media on screen

With so many connected and smart devices around these days, knowing what's playing where can be difficult. Is that song playing on the phone itself or your Bluetooth headphones? Be confused no more - with the new Media panel on your Note10, it’s never been easier to swap music between your devices. Plus, there's also the new Device panel that puts all of your favorite smart devices right at your fingertips.

Set up and open the Media panel

The Media panel may sound like some kind of complicated enigma, but using it is actually really simple.

To use it, just swipe down from top of the screen to open the Quick setting panel. Then, tap Media under the Quick settings icons. Read the information and tap Done. That’s it!

From here, you can view the current media that’s playing on the phone, such as songs from Spotify or Google Play Music. Use the different controls to play, pause, or skips songs; you can also control the volume by tapping the Volume icon.

The Quick Settings panel displaying Media

Underneath the displayed song, you’ll see a list of connected Bluetooth audio devices. You can change the audio output by tapping your desired device. For example, if the song is playing on your phone, you can tap Galaxy Buds to make the song play on your buds. Or, vice versa.

Control the TV’s Spotify from your phone

With the Media panel, you can control your Samsung TV’s Spotify app from your phone. It’s perfect for parties or playing DJ when you’re in the mood to jam. But first, you’ll need to link your phone and TV’s Spotify account.

Before anything else, make sure the TV and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and are signed into the same Spotify account. The TV also needs to have Spotify opened.

Swipe down from top of the screen to open the Quick setting panel. Then, tap Media, and tap the Smart View icon. Select your desired TV, and then tap Connect account on the phone.

Enter your Spotify account information on the phone. Tap LINK SPOTIFY, and then tap NEXT. You’ll now be taken back to the Media panel. Select your desired TV again from the Smart view screen. Now you can control Spotify on the TV from your phone!

The Smart View icon is highlighted on the Media screen

Whenever you want to stream Spotify to the TV, turn the TV on, open the Media panel on your phone, tap the Smart view icon, and select the TV with the linked Spotify account. The song will be instantly pulled up on the TV.

Use the Device panel

If having a special place for just audio devices wasn't enough, there's also a place for all of your other connected gadgets! It's called the Devices panel. And it's basically a shortcut to all your smart devices or scenes that are connected to your SmartThings account or phone!

To open the Device panel, swipe down from top of the screen to open Quick settings. Then, tap Devices under the Quick settings icons. Read the information, and tap Next.

Your connected Bluetooth devices and SmartThings will appear. Choose your desired devices or scenes that you want to show up in the Device panel - you should pick the ones you use most often. When you're finished, tap Done.

Now whenever you open the Devices panel, your chosen devices will appear for quick and easy access. Tap your desired icon to access a device's settings or to run a scene.
