    Mirroring the screen of your device wirelessly on a TV

    You can use the 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 favorite photos from the comfort of your couch. You can also use this feature to listen to music from your device using the TV’s speakers.

    Note

    • This function can be used with TVs that support the Screen mirroring feature.
    • When using Screen mirroring, the image quality may sometimes be negatively impacted if there is interference from other Wi-Fi networks.
