Samsung Smart View Adds Chromecast Device Streaming

In today’s world, everything is done using smartphones, even watching movies. But the visual experience we get while watching high-resolution clips on Smart TVs is something unmatchable.

The users can now experience everything in their Smart TV as Samsung provides the smart view feature, which enables Galaxy smartphones to project their screen using Miracast technology. From your computer, tablet, and mobile device with the Samsung Smart View app, you can quickly access material on your Samsung Smart TV and use your mobile device to operate the TV.

Samsung phones will no longer receive updates after upgrading to Android 14

Transferring materials, such as pictures, videos, and even music, directly from any of your devices to your TV is made possible. Miracast is a wireless technology that we may use to link devices for casting wirelessly. A lot of brands and manufacturers enabled this feature in recent years. The inability of smartphones to transmit their screens to Chromecast or Android TV devices was a frustrating constraint.

But it seems this issue may soon find a solution as the One UI contains a hidden developer menu that makes it possible to mirror the display in the direction of the aforementioned devices.

The feature was tested with One UI 5.1 on a Galaxy S23 Ultra and a Galaxy Z Fold 4, although it could also work with earlier iterations. It is also possible to utilize a Windows PC’s secondary display with your smartphone by going into the developer menu and switching on ‘Start SecondScreen.’ Following this choose the mobile for this purpose by pressing the Windows key + K. It is important to note that only the 16: 9 aspect ratio is supported by Windows.
