Ok, so you’re wondering how to connect a Samsung Galaxy S6 to a Samsung TV. Very often, Samsung Geeks own a wide range of devices from their favourite South Korean electronics company, from cameras to smartwatches and from smartphones to TVs. Clearly, it is only understandable and natural to want to use them together and make the most of their capabilities wherever possible.
In this short article, I will briefly explain how to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV. I will take a summary look at three different options on offer, namely Chromecast, Miracast and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
Option 1: Connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV using Chromecast
Chromecast is perhaps one of the simplest ways to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV and enjoy accessing the internet on a larger screen. The thumb-sized media streaming device plugs into your Samsung TV’s HDMI port so, after you have made sure that both your Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can quickly start watching YouTube videos, for example, on your Samsung TV.
One of the easiest ways to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV and, at £30, relatively inexpensive in comparison to alternative options, the Chromecast adds consumer value in terms of performance, convenience and ease of use, making it the right choice for many Samsung Geeks.
Option 2: Connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV using Miracast
Using Miracast is another brilliant way to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV. Not requiring cables or a network connection, Miracast facilitates transmitting your Samsung Galaxy S6’s display to your Samsung TV.
Some TVs come with Miracast built in, but if yours does not support Miracast then you will need to obtain a Miracast video adapter or either an Amazon Fire TV Stick or an Amazon Fire TV Box (prices for these products typically range from roughly £35-79). Connect one of these to the Samsung TV’s HDMI port and then register your Samsung Galaxy S6 by using Quick Connect, which is an in-built app connecting your Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone to many devices, including TVs, over WIFi. Then you will be all set to enjoy viewing your Samsung Galaxy S6’s screen on your Samsung TV.
Option 3: Connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
It is possible to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to your Samsung TV if it possesses the Samsung Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) function, which makes the use of screen mirroring simple, easy and convenient for device users. As with the Miracast option, the BLE option makes use of the Quick Connect app and connects your smartphone and TV in a fairly similar and simple to understand and follow manner.
