You may want to connect your Galaxy S8+ Plus to the TV at some point during the usage of the gadget. This process is a bit simple and more especially when you have the required software. There are two different ways to connect the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus to the TV and they are; Hard- wired and Wireless.
The other method is the easiest and but it only compatible with the versions of smart TV the year 2015 with inbuilt Bluetooth and on, which have the possibility of using the Bluetooth.
Here is how to connect Galaxy S8 to TV:
- Tap on the “Quick Connect” and scan nearby devices.
- Choose the TV and click on “Register TV”
- Press the arrow pointing at the TV icon on the screen and by this, you will be able to see what is on the Galaxy S8 screen on the TV set. This process can also be the opposite where you can mirror the TV on the phone in the same way as mentioned above. The only difference will be on the “Register TV” button which will be replaced by “TV to mobile Device”.
- To play media files on the TV from the phone you will have to tap on the “Share” button and you will be redirected to the “Smart View” at the bottom of the screen.
Mira cast Mirroring
The TV for other models apart from those of the Samsung can be compatible with Galaxy S8+ Plus if they support Mira cast you will have to go through the same way by tapping on the quick connections and search devices. If Mira cast is not compatible with your TV, then you have to purchase the Amazon Fire TV stick then long press the home button on the remote control and select mirroring before it is detected on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
Connecting via Chrome cast
To use the chrome cast to connect to your TV, you have to download it from Google and make sure that it is properly installed. If you do not install this then you have no problem connecting but you will be able to view half screen.
Wired MHL Connections
This is the most recommended methods for the android systems and devices for the TV connections. But it is sad news that Samsung has dropped this for the Galaxy S8+ Plus and has never shown any signs of returning it to the devices in the near future, though we want to believe that they are doing something to come up with a better way than the wired MHL connections.
