Hello,

Samsung Support advised me that I should be able to use SmartView on an A12 but I can't find it in the drop down options (I mean in the same place as switching off the wifi, sound, flight mode e.t.c) and I can't find it in the Galaxy App Store or Google Play Store.

I would appreciate knowing if I can access Smart View on an A12 and, if so, how?

Also I think I am correct in saying that SmartThings isn't compatible with an A12 and SmartHome is being replaced by SmartThings?

Thanks

Edit: Sorry in my original reply, below, I  should have said SmartHome not SmartThings.

Also if anyone knows of an alternate screen share app I would be intersted.

Original reply:

It looks like SmartThings works on an A12. However I haven't tested it much as it insists on knowing my location so I uninstalled it. I can see that some users might appreciate the convenience of it knowing which devices are near by but I think there should be an option for the user to not allow location tracking and manually select which device they want to screen mirror to.

Apologises there was an error in my post. I meant SmartHome and not SmartThings. I've updated my post to highlight my error. SmartHome should show on Google Play.

Galaxy A12 doesn't have smart view and I can't connect to my TV dongle anymore because smart things and smart home only support screen mirroring if the device was Samsung or chrome cast, so that is really weird from Samsung because my older phone had smart view that supports my anycast device

did anyone have a solution for this, please??
