How To Screen Mirror Your MacBook To A Samsung TV?

Both your MacBook and Samsung TV are capable of incredible things on their own. 

Your Samsung TV has built-in apps and smart settings that allow you to stream content directly from its interface, while your MacBook allows you to access apps and browse the internet at record speeds. 

So, what would happen if you combined the two? Can you screen mirror your Mac to your Samsung TV? 

Yes, you can! 

This process can be done using both devices’ AirPlay settings and will only take a few minutes of your time. 

Let’s get started! 

Enabling Airplay on Samsung TV

Before you can screen mirror your Mac, you will need to enable AirPlay on your Samsung TV via its settings. 

Step 1: Find and press your Samsung remote’s Home button. 

Step 2: Use the arrow buttons to head to the left-side menu. Then, scroll and select Settings using your remote’s Enter/OK button. 

Step 3: Head to General

Step 4: Then, click on Apple AirPlay Settings

To find your Samsung TV’s network settings, go to Home, Settings, followed by General. Then, click on Network

Once you’ve ensured both devices are connected to the same network (e.g. Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot), you’re ready to pair them. 

Navigate to Control Center on the menu bar, select the Screen Mirroring icon, and then choose your TV.
