Smart view now only mirroring Samsung apps on S9+

First Poster

Having recently updated apps, my S9+ now only casts/mirrors Samsung apps, onto my T. V. (you tube will still cast to T. V.).

Before recent "upgrades", I could watch any content from my phone, on any of my T. V's.

I could even watch material from my College site, on T. V. 

Now, I can only watch photos/vids from gallery etc.


Does anyone know what is going on. 

I am due to upgrade to S10+ soon, but will choose other make of phone, if Samsung has removed this function. 

Thanking you.

I don't think Samsung has removed the options @Hawk1  as I can use smart things on my Samsung Note 10+ 5G to watch content from the phone to my Samsung Smart TV.


Are there any updates either on the phone or TV that are pending ?



My advice comes from being a UK Samsung Phone User.

Hi there,


Was this issue every resolved, I am experiencing the same problem now with only Samsung apps being displayed.


This change only happened after the big software update in this year.


Please advise

I had the same problem. Previously, I loved using the Samsung Smart View app - it was superb. 

I found a way to mirror properly again. I downloaded Miracast app by The Tree Team. So far, it works fine.

I hope this helps someone (Samsung certainly hasn't!)

Good luck everyone.
