Screen mirroring is one of the most popular features you can use on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus. Many users would like to explore it but aren’t really sure what exactly would it take.
Can you do it wirelessly or not? Can you do it with any type of TV? Do you need anything else other than the smartphone and the TV? All these are natural questions for anyone who doesn’t really know what to expect.
For all the questions, we’re going to give you all the answers right now. You can screen mirror your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus smartphone to any kind of TV. You can do it with a wired connection or with a wireless one. And depending on what kind of connection and what TV you’re planning to use, you might have to buy a couple of accessories.
The wireless connection
To set up a wireless connection is even simpler. If you’re lucky enough to have a Samsung SmartTV, you’ll just need to tweak a few settings. But even if you don’t have a SmartTV, it won’t be difficult.
Follow these steps:
- Buy yourself a Samsung AllShare Hub;
- Connect the Hub to the TV – again, you will need a standard HDMI cable;
- Connect the smartphone and the Hub or the TV to the same wireless network;
- From there, go to Settings;
- Tap on Screen Mirroring to activate it.
That’s all for now. If you have any questions or comments, write them down!
