What is needed to use the screen-share feature on a Samsung Phone?
In order to be able to share the screen of your Samsung phone on your TV, the device has to run Android 4.1.2 and above, to make sure that it has the All Share Cast setting. To get started, you may need to update the app. A new generation Smart TV or a USB dongle that supports All Share Cast is also needed. The majority of Samsung TV series currently available have Screen-Mirroring and the latest Smart TVs from popular brands like Sony and LG also support this function.
If your TV is doesn’t support this feature, you can buy a Samsung All Share Cast Dongle, which is a USB adaptor that lets you connect and share the picture on the TV screen and of the content that being run on the smartphone. If you own a TV from other manufacturer, you can find adaptors that are compatible with Miracast/direct WiFi to get the issue solved.
In the upper part of the main screen of the phone, you will see an icon for All Share Cast, which needs to be activated. The Samsung smartphone will start to look for compatible devices. If you have a Samsung F series Smart TV, an ES7000 or E8000 the press the Source button and then go to Screen Mirroring to select that option. The TV will begin a search to find the smartphone. On the smartphone, select the TV as pairing device and in the smart TV menu select to connect to connect to the smartphone. This will appear on the screen and you will be able to select it from a list of compatible devices. In a few seconds, what is on the screen of the Samsung smartphone, will also appear on the TV.
If you have a LG smart TV all that is needed is to go to Settings/Network and from there, you can enable the Miracast/Wi-Di option. Once this has been activated, open Allshare Cast on your smartphone and the TV will be found after a brief search.
From there, you can follow the below steps:
Allow both devices to sync and start watching the content from your smartphone on the bigger screen of the TV. Keep in mind that when you connect a Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone through All Share Cast to a LG Smart TV with Miracast, you may experience a very short delay until the phone screen is displayed on the TV. When you connect a Samsung S3 phone with what is displayed on both screens with a Samsung F5500 Smart TV, the devices synchronize seamlessly.
It is also worth noting that the name of the feature is different in the menu of the TV, which is why you will need to check the instruction manual. All Share Cast on Samsung smartphone works with other TV brands. Compatible USB dongles come with clear instructions that will allow you to use them accordingly. Even if you don’t have a Smart TV, it is possible to enable your TV to run files from your phone with this kind of USB device. The option to share the smartphone screen to a TV is available not only on Samsung phones, but also with other devices running Android 4.2 and above.
