Screen Mirroring is one of the popular and commonly used features of the Galaxy devices including the new Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

With this feature, you can wirelessly beam your photos, videos, presentations or video games from your mobile device to your television screen.

When screen mirroring is activated, you can connect directly to a supported Samsung Smart TV or connect to any HDTV using Samsung HomeSync.

In order to know if your television is compatible with Screen Mirroring or supports the feature, please refer to your TV user manual first. If your TV supports Screen Mirroring, then you may now start with the following settings configuration on your Galaxy Alpha and on the Smart TV.

A. Direct Connection


Follow these steps to connect directly to select Samsung Smart TVs:

//On your Smart TV

1. Get your Smart TV's remote control.
2. Use the remote control to access Menu.
3. Next, go to Network.

5. Select Screen Mirroring.

//On your Galaxy Alpha smartphone

1. Tap Apps from the Home screen.
2. Tap on Settings.
3. Select Screen Mirroring.
4. Touch the slider next to Screen mirroring to turn the feature ON or enable it.
