Help please! It says I can connect Alexa to my TV but how do you do this as it has no Bluetooth ?

I am also trying to connect my TV to smart things app on my iPhone and it won’t discover the device? I presume due to the TV having no Bluetooth ? When I click through the list it doesn’t discover either.

thank you in advance !

How to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa

Step 1: Set up your devices.

First, make sure that both your Samsung TV and your Amazon Alexa device are set up and functioning. Once you complete the initial setup on the TV and the Alexa device, you'll need to make sure that both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network.

If you haven't yet, you'll also need to set up the TV as a Thing (smart device) in the SmartThings app. To do this, simply sign in to your Samsung account on the TV.

Step 2: Prepare the apps.

You'll also need to get your phone ready to coordinate these two devices. If you haven't yet, download both the Samsung SmartThings app (available for iOS and Android) and the Amazon Alexa app (also for iOS or Android).

And if you're unsure of how to use Amazon's voice assistant app, check out our guides for using Alexa on your Android phone or using Alexa on your iPhone

Make sure that you log in to both apps with the same account information you used for your TV's Samsung account and your Echo's Amazon account.

Step 3: Discover your TV in the SmartThings app.

First, you'll need to discover your Samsung TV in the Samsung SmartThings app, which lets you treat it as a basic connected smart device when connecting it to your Alexa speake

To do this, go to the Devices menu, found on the bottom menu of the app.

On the Devices page, select the Add Device option. With the TV powered on, it should be easy to find your device in the list.


Once you've enabled the Samsung SmartThings skill — which should automatically pair Alexa to the TV — you're all done. Congratulations, you just connected your your Samsung smart TV to Alexa!

You can now use your Alexa smart speaker to turn the TV on and off, change the channel or input, adjust the volume and even control media playback with basic controls like fast forward, rewind, pause and play.

hope this helps
