You have a Google Pixel 8 Pro and want to connect it to your Samsung TV to enjoy your content on a larger screen? Normally, screen mirroring is done through Miracast, but unfortunately, the Google Pixel does not support this feature. However, don't worry, there are alternatives to connect your Google Pixel to your Samsung TV.

Google Pixel 8 Pro

Alternative 1: Use Chromecast

One way to connect your Google Pixel 8 Pro to your Samsung TV is by using Google Chromecast. Chromecast is a small device that plugs into the HDMI port of your TV. You can then cast content from your Google Pixel to the TV screen.

To use Chromecast, you need to first connect it to your TV and set it up using the Google Home app. Make sure both your Google Pixel and Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, you can mirror the screen of your Google Pixel to your Samsung TV and enjoy videos, photos, or other content.

Alternative 2: Use an HDMI Cable

If you want to establish a direct connection between your Google Pixel 8 Pro and your Samsung TV, you can use an HDMI cable. First, check if your Samsung TV has an HDMI port. Most modern TVs have at least one HDMI input.

To connect your Google Pixel to your Samsung TV, you'll need an HDMI cable and a USB-C to HDMI adapter, as the Google Pixel has a USB-C port. Connect the HDMI cable to the adapter and plug the adapter into your Google Pixel. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your Samsung TV.

Make sure your Samsung TV is set to the correct HDMI input, and you should now see the screen of your Google Pixel on your TV. This method provides a stable connection and allows you to mirror content in high quality.

Alternative 3: Use Smart View

If your Samsung TV supports the Smart View feature, you can use it to wirelessly connect your Google Pixel. Smart View is a built-in feature in Samsung TVs that allows you to cast content from your mobile device to your TV.

To use Smart View, open the settings on your Google Pixel and look for the "Connections" or "Screen Mirroring" option. Enable the feature and select your Samsung TV from the list of available devices.

Once the connection is established, you can mirror the screen of your Google Pixel to your Samsung TV and share content. However, note that not all Samsung TV models support the Smart View feature, so check compatibility beforehand.

Although the Google Pixel 8 Pro does not support screen mirroring via Miracast, there are various alternatives to connect your Google Pixel to your Samsung TV. You can use Google Chromecast, use an HDMI cable with a USB-C to HDMI adapter, or use the Smart View feature on your Samsung TV.

Explore the different options and choose the method that best suits your needs. This way, you can enjoy your content from the Google Pixel on a larger screen and have an impressive visual experience.
