Remote for Samsung TV | Smart & WiFi Direct
So, what’s the benefit of using a remote control app over using a remote? Well, there are plenty. The first benefit is of course, not having to use a remote. Right? If you’re using your phone app, you won’t have a problem with losing the remote – unless you lose your phone! The other thing that’s nice about using a phone app, is that it’s generally hardware agnostic. Meaning that, you can only control the Samsung TV with certain remotes, or universal remotes. However, the phone app is indiscriminate – it’ll work with your Samsung TV! Of course, that’s assuming your TV is compatible.
This remote app works with Samsung K-Series Tizen TVs, with a manufacturing date of 2016 or later.
To make this app work properly with your TV, follow the below directions:
- In the settings on the TV, look for the “all share” settings. You have to allow the phone app in this setting pane
- If connecting the app to your TV for the first time, accept the permission message that appears on the TV.
- If by accident you refused the message on the TV, you can fix this. Go to menu—> network–> All share settings (or Menu/Tools depending on your model)—> Network –> Expert settings —> mobile device manager
On a final note, your TV and mobile device (phone where the app is installed) must be connected to the same network. If you don’t have wifi at home, this is obviously a problem and this method will not work. If you are confused about how WIFI works, or not sure if you have a WIFI network in your home, read our article about setting up your own home network.
