Mirror to Reflector Using Samsung SmartView

Most new Samsung mobile devices have Smart View built into the device. 

Please note: Smart View only sends content to certain compatible receivers, like a Chromecast, Fire Stick, or Samsung’s own Smart TV.

Use the steps below to mirror your Samsung phone or tablet with Smart View:

Step 1

Download and install Reflector on your Mac or Windows computer. 

Step 2

Open Reflector and make sure your Android device and computer are connected to the same wifi network.

Step 3

On your Android device, swipe down twice from the top of the screen to reveal the Quick Settings tray. If Smart View isn’t on this page, you may need to search for it or swipe to the second page of tiles in the tray.

Note: You may see the Cast option here as well. Learn how to screen mirror with Cast. 

Step 4

Tap the Smart View button.

Your phone or tablet is now wirelessly mirroring to your computer. Anything you do on your mobile device will reflect on your computer in real-time, including audio. 

Tap the Smart View button on your device screen to cancel the mirroring, or disconnect from the Reflector menu.

Please note: If your device is running Android 11 OS the SmartView function may no longer utilize Cast for connections. You can refer to our workaround instructions for Android 11 at this link: Why can't I mirror with SmartView on Android 11.
