Now we just have to activate the Screen Mirror function on the TV or on Windows or Mac and immediately activate Smart View on the phone. We can do it by sliding the notification bar down.
When the phone detects the TV, the application will synchronize automatically. From now on we can see everything that happens on the mobile screen on TV: from applications to videos and games.
