Thanks to modern technologies, Smart TV reveals completely new possibilities for using our television. Smart TVs are, for obvious reasons, connected to the Internet, which makes it possible to communicate between smartphones and Smart TVs, and if you've ever wondered how to transfer a picture from a smartphone to a TV, you're in the right place.
In this article we will show you the instructions, thanks to which you will know stream content from your phone directly to your TV in your living room, bedroom or anywhere he has internet access. Let's go.
Method 1: Google Chromecast
The first and probably easiest way we can present to you is service mirroring Google Chromecast. Chromecast is a feature that connects native Google applications, such as YouTube, Google Home or Google Photos, with your TV.
Launch directly from the YouTube app
If your TV doesn't have a Chromecast feature right now, it's sure to be the YouTube app that most smart TVs have. All you have to do here is open the video on your smartphone and click on the image transfer icon at the top. Then you just choose the devices on which the video should run.
The rule here is that both the TV and the smartphone must be connected to the same network.
If your smart TV box or TV supports Chromecast, you can mirror the image by simply clicking on the mirror icon. At the same time, you can use the Google Home application to transfer the entire image of your smartphone, regardless of the specific application. In other words, you will see what you have on your smartphone.
If your TV doesn't have a built-in Chromecast feature, you can use an external device that Google also makes. There are also many TV boxes with this feature or even TV sticks.
Method 2: Transfer the image via the built-in function
The second method is focused on selected devices and smartphones. In the control center of your smartphone (pull from above) you may see a function with the inscription "Transmit" (or in English "Cast").
Subsequently, you only need to select the correct device that will appear in the menu if they are compatible with each other. We used the OnePlus 9 Pro in the editorial office with the Samsung Q60 Series smart TV.
After clicking on your TV or other device, you will then be prompted to confirm the transfer. In our case, Samsung TV looked something like this:
After confirming the transfer, you can fully enjoy the live projection of the image, which is very high quality and with minimal delay. Even when watching a video, the sound is perfectly synchronized with the image and you will not be disturbed by any imperfections.
This built-in image transfer feature is not available on all smartphones and TVs. But if your smartphone has this feature built into it, it's a very convenient and easy way to transfer the image from your phone to your TV.
Method 3: Third Party Applications
In case any of the above methods do not work in your case or you simply prefer another option, there is still a way to transfer the image using third party applications. These applications usually work on the principle that you have the application installed on both your smartphone and your Smart TV.
You can find a huge number of applications for screen mirroring in the Google Play Store. For example, we can recommend the application "chaste"That you can conveniently download directly from this link.
Finally, we must not forget to make a few important remarks. For mirroring to work properly, it is essential that you have your Smart TV connected to the same network, to which your smartphone is connected.
At the same time, we add that the complete mirroring of the display will also display notifications on the television, which may contain private or sensitive information. Therefore, if you see fit, consider turning on do not disturb mode before mirroring the image itself.
