    When I go into smartview on the drop down menu to mirror my phone on my tv, my Sony tv's no longer show up as options, only our one Samsung tv. Sony's have Chromecast built in with android software. XBR900 series. No software update available on the tv's so that is not the issue.

    Phone is Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5g

    Have soft reset phone, soft reset tv's, unplugged the Wi-Fi to get a fresh restart on the router.

    Any thoughts?

    YouTube and Netflix should be in the upper corner of the screen in the app to chromecast to the TV

    Chromecast works. What I am talking about is the screen mirroring using the "smart view" app in the pull down menu. The app that puts your actual phone screen on the tv. It was working fine before OS11.

    No go. Maybe Samsung is only allowing mirroring to Samsung tv's now? My old BlackBerry key2 brings up the Sony tv's.

    Yes. Samsung disabled Miracast screen mirroring to non-Samsung TVs recently. I am sure I read that on some random tech blog. You can still chromecast where available. Also you can use miracast to use wireless Dex on a non-Samsung TV but I think smartview has stopped working. I cannot use smartview with my LG TV but I can use the same option to use wireless Dex with it.

    I'm still using smart view to mirror my Note 20 Ultra to an old Miracast HDMI dongle I have, worked a few days ago unless I'm about to get an update that disables it.

    Updating to Android 11 now, will check if it still works. I use smartview to a Belkin Miracast HDMI device on an old TV and I cast to my TLC Roku enabled TV with no issues to date with any Samsung from the Note 3 to the N20U.

    On Android 11 now, just what I needed was more UI changes just as I got used to Android 10. My toggle for smart switch moved and I momentarily panicked. Lol

    In any case both my Belkin Miracast adapter and TCL Roku TV work with smart view on my Note 20 Ultra, no change in functionality from Android 10 that I've seen.

    Maybe they just stopped casting to non Miracast devices? Chrome cast is proprietary and doesn't use Miracast tech.

    Smart View and DeX (wirelessly) no longer work on non-Samsung Devices Or Chrome cast. Google trust issue appertly since the OneUi 3.0 update

    You can however still use the Google Home app to 'Cast your screen' by clicking on whatever device you want to use in that app
