I installed the one UI 5.1.1 August update today and the Smart View developer options have been removed. I am no longer able to use the S6 Lite as a second screen for my windows laptop. This is EXTREMELY inconvenient. Not sure why that feature would be removed. Can that feature be accessed a different way now?
Samsung has removed the Smart View developer options in One UI 5.1.1. This is likely due to a combination of factors, including privacy concerns, security concerns, and complexity.
There is no official way to access the Smart View developer options in One UI 5.1.1. However, there is a workaround that involves using a third-party app such as Smart View Mirror.
To use Smart View Mirror, you will need to install the app on both your Samsung device and your Windows laptop. Once the app is installed, you can connect your devices to the same Wi-Fi network and launch the app on both devices.
On your Samsung device, open the Smart View Mirror app and tap the "Start" button. On your Windows laptop, open the Smart View Mirror app and select your Samsung device from the list of available devices.
Once your devices are connected, you can use your Samsung device as a second screen for your Windows laptop.
Please note that Smart View Mirror is a third-party app and is not affiliated with Samsung. Samsung does not guarantee the functionality or reliability of Smart View Mirror.
I hope this information is helpful.
Any links to the app? I am not finding it in either google, Samsung or windows app stores. It is a shame they just didn't move the ability to connect to a wireless monitor with the S6 Lite to another location. If I understand correctly, other tablets have this option and it is not hidden under developer options.
There was no privacy or security concerns about it. It was a very useful feature which is being kept out of the reach of customers which doesn't required third party app installation on both the participating devices which also saves them from installing third party app which could be malicious. It is an Act of Evil.
The second screen feature was one of the reasons I bought the tablet. I purchased it last week and I'm strongly considering returning it because of this very disappointing problem. It's absurd to downgrade a previously existing feature.
