Mirroring the screen of your device wirelessly on a TV
You can use Screen mirroring feature to show the screen of your device on a TV or other large display without using a cable connection. Wi-Fi Direct™ technology creates a wireless connection between the two devices, so you can sit back and enjoy your favourite photos from the comfort of your couch. You can also use this feature to listen to music from your device via the TV's speakers.
Your TV must support screen mirroring based on Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ for the functionality described above to work. If your TV does not support screen mirroring, you may need to purchase a wireless display adapter separately.
When using screen mirroring, the image quality may sometimes be negatively impacted if there is interference from other Wi-Fi® networks.
