Those same users often chose to stay with their old Galaxy S6 phones because of the IR Blaster feature.
But if you have already give up the samsung galaxy old version, but still need the IR blatser.Samsung came up with two apps,SmartThings and SmartView, that allow users to get the same results.You can also stream videos, music, and pictures from other devices to your S8.Here is the steps you can follow:
- Swipe down on your smartphone’s Home screen to open the “Quick Settings” menus.
- From there, select the “Smart View” feature. It will show you a list of all available devices you can pair with.
