Samsung removed the Smart View app on October 5, 2020, which allowed users to convert their smartphones into Samsung TV remotes. Samsung has not left smartphone owners without an alternative though the software has now been disabled, as the company’s SmartThings app will do many of the same things, including serving as a remote for a TV and a master control point for an entire smart home.
SmartThings is a Samsung-owned product development company that is working to attach all smart devices in the household. The SmartThings app works as a controller for Samsung TVs, like the Smart View app, but it does much more than that, because it can also control other compatible devices. There is arguably the greatest distinction between the two applications, since SmartThings deals with the whole smart home while Smart View deals with TVs.
The SmartThings app can connect to TVs as well and allows users to control TV settings. Whether changing volume, HDMI inputs, or channels, this part of the app works very similar to the Smart View app. Also like Smart View, device owners can mirror their screen to their TV. While Smart View is gone, Samsung’s SmartThings app is a major improvement that offers users control over more devices than just their TV.
