Prior to the recent SmartThings update, TV audio could be played on the phone via SmartThings (which was great for being able to watch TV without disturbing others). After the update, this was removed. Are you guys going to fix this, apply it back, or provide an alternative to this function?

Same problem here. Samsung, !? Bring back the audio option!  I've bought your  tv for this option. I.m using my phone with headphones at night when watching movies. Why the heck you removed this option!?

It's been 4 weeks since the newest update of Smart Things arrived and the feature of TV audio to phone is gone. I used this feature all the time. That was the only reason why I use the Smart Things app. Now, I cannot listen to my TV thru my phone using my wired headphones. I love this feature since when I cook, I cannot listen to the TV speakers or if I need to get something from another room, I can continue listening like normal. 
I don't want to buy Bluetooth headphones just for my TV, since this feature was completely free!!! I have not watched my TV shows on my TV since this update showed up!
