To connect your smartphone to a Samsung TV, you need to use a dedicated TV Link app. How to set everything up, we will tell in the article.
Connect a Samsung tablet or smartphone to a Samsung TV
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to connect devices via standard Android programs – you will have to use a special cable or software from Samsung. It is already installed on the manufacturer’s smartphones, so it will be easier to connect them. But keep in mind that the smartphone and the TV must be on the same network: both devices can be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or LAN.
On your TV, open the Sources menu and go to the Screen Mirroring tile to enable the mobile data function.
If you are using a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, swipe down from the top of the screen and turn on Smart View or Screen Mirroring from the menu. After that, the connection between the mobile phone and the TV will start. If the TV is not found, press the Source button on the remote control and select Smart View or Screen Mirroring. If the connection is established, the phone’s desktop will be displayed on the TV screen.
How to connect any smartphone to Samsung TV
You can download an application preinstalled on Samsung devices on a smartphone or tablet from another manufacturer. Samsung SmartView works on both iOS and Android.
When you launch the app, the TV will be detected automatically. Now you can use the above mobile device as a remote control and stream content to your TV screen. For example, if you open the YouTube app on iOS or Android, you can stream all videos. To do this, click the arrow in the upper right corner of the screen and select your Samsung TV.
What to do if you can’t connect your smartphone to your Samsung TV?
If the above methods did not work for some reason, there are other methods of connecting a smartphone to a Samsung TV. Instead of using the wireless method, you can also connect the gadget using a cable.
MHL adapter (micro USB to HDMI) allows you to connect most Android tablets to any Samsung TV. Such adapters can be bought for only a couple of hundred rubles. To connect your iPad or iPhone to your TV, you need an appropriate HDMI to Lightning adapter.
