How To Share Phone Screen On TV?

Share phone screen on TV

The first step before sharing your phone screen on TV is to make sure that both your TV and phones are compatible with Smartview screen share, which actually does not need any additional software or application download to work!

All that is necessary, is to set the TV on cast mode, and to start casting on your phone - and to have both devices connected to the same WiFI network.

Let's see in detail how to get it to work, and how to share your phone screen on your Smart TV at no cost with extra software.

Prepare Grundig TV for phone screen casting

In below example, we will see how to get a Grundig TV to cast phone screen sharing, but it works the same way with any phone and Smart TV.

First of all, double check that both the phone and the TV are connected to the same  WiFi network ‌  - that is necessary for the screen sharing to work.

Then, it the options menu, navigate to screen sharing. If you haven't configured your favorite TV settings, the screen sharing menu might be hidden in a subpage, as it is usually not considered a TV main external digital source.

Once you've found it, simply open it - it can either be called Screen sharing or Device connector, and be hidden within the TV options or TV source selection.

The TV will then be ready to receive screen sharing from a nearby compatible device. This step is necessary to avoid anyone to connect his device to the TV while another program is being played.

The TV should then be in the ready to connect, to start, launch the Miracast screen share application on your emetting device mode, and the TV name will be displayed.

Even if it sounds like you do need a third-party app to start screen casting, that is not the case. The function is built-in in most mobile phones that have been built in the past year, and chance is you have this function without knowing!

Now that the TV is ready to receive a phone screen cast, the next step on the phone is to find content to share on the TV, such as a picture from the phone's gallery.

Then, select the usual sharing button, and you will get the whole sharing options, as you always do.

To start screen sharing your phone's content, select the Smart View option, as the SmartView on some phones actually is the built-in Miracast option, only with another name - it can differ based on your phone, therefore if you don't see it, look for a similar option.

The Smart View option will detect accessible casting devices, such as your Smart TV currently awaiting for screen cast.

Find your TV name in the devices list, and tap on it to start screencasting your phone's screen on your Smart TV.

And that's it! Your phone's screen content should now be displayed on your TV, and any action you take on your phone will be replicated and displayed on your TV.

An ideal way to turn your TV into a picture gallery viewer and to watch it with your family from the comfort of your sofa.

You will then be able to control the TV display from your phone: for example, simply twist your phone 90 degrees in any direction, in order to rotate both your phone's display and the corresponding TV display.

Switch it horizontally to display information horizontally, usually more convenient to read text, and twist it vertically to watch Instagram stories for example.

If your phone display's do not rotate, it might be because the auto rotate option has been deactivated - simply tap on it from the phone's main top menu to get the auto-rotate option back.

Pause or disconnect phone screen cast on TV

When you are done with your phone's screen sharing on TV and want to end it, control it from your phone by selecting the Smart View option which will be accessible from your phone's notification bar.

You will have options to pause screen sharing, meaning that you will use your phone but it won't be displayed on TV, to change the width/height proportion of your phone's sharing, and to disconnection the TV from your phone.
