I just recently received my Note 8 from Verizon.

 

I truly love this phone except for the fact that I can't get Smart View to work. I have tried it with 2 Samsung TV's, an Amazon Fire TV, a Google Chromecast, and even a USB C to HDMI adapter. Smart View never connects and never recognized the USB adapter.

 

Is their a bug in the software for the phone? It is showing as fully up to date.

I also have the same problem with mine 08 when I first got it it worked the first couple times with some hiccups but now it just won't work at all. I won't connect to my Google Chromecast. when I open the Google Chromecast HOME app IT SAYS SCREEN MIRRORING IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR THIS DEVICE. so I did a search for optimize devices for Google Chromecast and the Samsung Note 8 was not on the list

My Note 8 doesnt screen cast anymore either since the Oreo update.  It connects and casts for literally 2 seconds and then drops the connection and says "Smart View has stopped working."

 

I've tried everything in this thread, no luck.

I believe it is definitely a bug in an Android update.

 I had a Note 8 which connected fine to my TV with a Microsoft Miracast dongle until a system update after which it would not connect at all. I broke that phone and got another Note 8 and the exact same thing occurred, it connected fine until a system update and now will not connect at all.

How has this bug not been fixed? This is unacceptable!  What is Samsung doing to fix?

I had same problem just fixed it! Hope it works for you.  Press on the smart view , but hold on to it , it takes you to a screen that tells you, about smart view,  press on that, once you get there you will have a choice to [force stop], press on that. You can now exit and try your smart view now. That should do it.
