Have you ever had a funny video on your phone and by the time you passed your phone around to show everyone, it’s just not funny anymore? You don’t need an Apple TV to share it faster; you can screen-mirror your funny videos straight to your Samsung TV for the whole room to see.
Also: Reminder: Apple’s Dark Sky app will stop working Jan. 1
This may seem like daunting to figure out at first, but don’t fret, it only takes a few minutes to get your phone mirrored up on the big screen.

Where do I find AirPlay on my iPhone?
When playing media on your phone like YouTube videos and different apps, the AirPlay logo should appear on your screen. Typically, the logo appears in the top-right corner of the screen when you’re watching or streaming videos. For other apps like Photos, you will need to click the Share icon at the bottom of the screen and an AirPlay option will appear.
What devices can use AirPlay?
Only Apple devices can send content using AirPlay, but it can be received and mirrored by several TV brands, including Samsung. Other phones can also do screen mirroring, it’s just called something different.
Why won’t my AirPlay work on my Samsung TV?
The easiest answer to this question is that it’s simply not turned on for either your television or your phone. But, following the steps listed above, turning it on should be a breeze.
