This work, developed by the Korean company itself, achieves that the aforementioned contents can be sent from a device of the Galaxy range to a compatible television, and all this without having to use any cable. As far as the phone or tablet is concerned, what must be fulfilled is that it has an Android 4.1 or higher operating system. Therefore, this is a condition that must be taken into account.
The fact is that Samsung SmartView allows saving the use of multimedia players, such as Chromecast, when using products from the Korean range. Of course, it does not allow to view on the television what is seen on the panel of the device in question, so if this is intended, the development does not offer this breadth of use. The case is that the two components must be in the same WiFi network And, if this is so, taking advantage of the application is completely possible.
Of course, at the moment it is not possible to use Samsung SmartView with all the Smart tv that Samsung has on the market, and then we leave the list of televisions that are compatible (which will increase over time):
LED D7000 from 2011 or higher, PDP D8000or higher
ES7500 LEDs from 2012 or higher, PDP E8000 or higher
F4500 LEDs from 2013 or higher (not the F9000 or higher), PDPF5500 or higher
H4500 from 2014 or higher, H5500 (except H6003, H6103, H6153, H6201 and H6203)
J4500 from 2015, J5500 or higher (except J6203)
K4300 from 2016, K5300 or higher
How to use Samsung SmartView
It is not at all complicated to use the development, since there is a detail that makes it stand out in this section: it has a very complete assistant and, in addition, it is great utility. In it, the options offered by Samsung SmartView are known and, additionally, you can even know the compatible televisions that are available in the WiFi network that is used (which, by the way, can be changed very easily and given use to the section seen in the center of the screen).
When the connection is established, an interface appears in which the contents are divided by type: Videos, Photos and Music. The different files that are stored are listed and, selecting one by pressing, begins with the transmission to the television and it is possible to enjoy from this precise moment. Without complications and with great reliability since many cuts are not detected if the WiFi coverage is adequate.
The application can be used for other purposes, but they are not the main ones. An example is that the functionality of Remote control so that it can be operated with the phone or tablet terminal itself. Its usefulness is undeniable, but in our case we did not use it much on a regular basis. By the way, the use as a mouse is no longer available in development, something that was the game in previous versions.
Get Samsung SmartView
You can download this development at Galaxy Apps and Play Store, without having to pay go for it. In order to use Samsung SmartView, it is not necessary to very high requirements, so using it is something that many can “afford” … as long as a compatible television is available. A most interesting application that, when we tried it, we discovered that it works well and, in addition, that it is not difficult to take advantage of it.
