Screen mirroring is one of those features that many avoid using until their first experience with it. Once you see with your own eyes how great it is to be able to view on a huge TV screen whatever you were trying to access on your Samsung Galaxy S8’s tiny screen, there’s no coming back.
At that point, you will probably start asking around about your options. You’ll discover that there are a couple of different ways you can set up this connection, MHL support being the common point.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to screen mirror a Galaxy S8 to a TV through a wireless connection. You could do it with a wired connection too, but everybody loves the wireless these days, so we’re going to focus on it.
The wireless connection between a Samsung Galaxy S8 and a TV
If you own a Samsung SmartTV, connecting it to a Samsung smartphone is piece of cake. If you don’t, it will be a bit trickier though not impossible. Actually, all it takes is purchasing an AllShare Hub. Here are the steps we’re talking about:
- Get yourself a Samsung AllShare Hub;
- Connect with a standard HDMI cable the AllShare Hub and the TV;
- Connect your smartphone and the AllShare Hub or the TV to the same Wi-Fi network;
- Access Settings;
- Go to Screen Mirroring.
And that’s about all. From now on, you can do whatever you were doing on your Samsung Galaxy S8 straight on your TV. The power of MHL support – mind-bending, right?
