Smart View is an easy way to screen mirror content from your Samsung phone or tablet to a larger display.

Most new Samsung mobile devices have Smart View built in. You can also download the Smart View app if it’s not a native feature on your device.

Sounds great, right? But there’s a catch: Smart View only sends content to certain compatible receivers, like a Chromecast, Fire Stick or Samsung’s own Smart TV.

Can you use Smart View to screen mirror your mobile device to a Mac or Windows computer? What if you don’t own a Samsung Smart TV?

You’re out of luck…unless you use Reflector 3.

Reflector is an app that turns your computer into a wireless mirroring receiver. You can use Smart View to screen mirror your Samsung mobile device straight to your computer screen with Reflector. No cords, no compatibility issues, no fuss. You can buy it or try it for free here.

How to mirror your Samsung phone or tablet to your computer with Smart View:

Step 1

Download and install Reflector on your Mac or Windows computer. Open Reflector. Make sure your Android device and computer are connected to the same wifi network.
