Now, open a photo, press the transmission icon and select your TV. In the same way, you can send any video from your smartphone to your TV.

What to do if Wi-Fi Direct doesn’t work?

If Wi-Fi Direct doesn’t work for you, update your Smart TV software and try again. If it still does not work, you will have to use an app to send your photos and videos to the TV. We recommend Nero Streaming Player.

Is Wi-Fi Direct useful to watch cell phone games on TV?

Wi-Fi Direct does not allow showing on TV what is played on the cell phone. To do this, you will have to use the screen mirroring function. Most brands of Android phones include this feature. If you don’t know if your smartphone includes it, you can download the TV Connector Utils (Miracast, MHL Checker) app to find out.
