2. How to connect Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 to TV that is not Smart TV

Our mobile phones fulfill a very important mission that is to communicate with others, either through calls or SMS messages or using instant messaging chats . In addition to this, and especially since the arrival of the Internet to the terminals, the possibilities of them are virtually endless: look for information, browse the mail , use the camera to take photos or record or view videos are actions that have become scenes everyday..

It is true that when we watch video on our phone but we want to share the moment with other people, the screen of our terminal may remain small. On occasions like this, connecting our mobile phone to television or Smart TV seems like a good solution to be able to view video content without problems and on a larger screen.

This can be done using cables and other devices or wirelessly if we use DNLA or Miracast technology if the conditions to do so exist..

The requirements that must be met are
  • TV and mobile must have WiFi connection and be connected to the same WiFi network.
  • That our TV or mobile are compatible with both technologies.
  • Have on our mobile the option of "Duplicate screen" or "Share screen".
What is DNLA?
The DNLA (Digital Living Network Alliance) technology, allows you to connect two devices without the need for cable or other devices, being able to play files such as photos and videos that we are viewing on the screen of our mobile on TV, but it does not allow the screen content to be reproduced per se.
What is Miracast?
Miracast technology allows a connection between two devices (in this case mobile and Smart TV) in a similar way to what we would do with an HDMI cable but without the need to use cables; with the difference that we can see on TV everything we are viewing on the phone screen.

It is for this reason that today in TechnoWikis we will explain how to connect our mobile to our TV using Miracast technology or with other options with one of the most popular Android phones of the moment. The Samsung Galaxy A8 2018.
