How to Connect Phone to Hisense TV

Smartphones and other similar devices, don’t always come with screens large enough to accommodate a good show or video game. They’re not always equipped with the picture fidelity needed, like 4K resolutions or higher framerates. By connecting your phone to a Hisense Smart TV, or any smart TV, you can join the two worlds by bringing your game or video to the big screen.

Most, if not all, smart TVs, including Hisense, come with the ability to connect to a network connection, like Wi-Fi. When you configure your Hisense Smart TV to your network connection and then connect your phone to the same network, they share it and can pass data between each other.

If you were wondering how you could connect your Hisense Smart TV to your phone, then you’re looking in the right place.

Connect Android Phone To Hisense Using Anyview Cast

Some devices can only connect to a TV using forms such as over the air HDMI. With your Hisense TV, you can use Anyview cast to cast your phone’s screen to the TV. Anyview Cast is a Hisense feature that uses your WiFi connection to mirror content from your phone to your Hisense TV. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to watch TV shows, play games, share photos, and watch videos, instantly.

1. Open the TV settings that your Hisense TV is equipped with. It’s the three horizontal lines located on your remote. Afterwards, select the GEAR icon.

2. On the left hand column, locate ‘System.’ Press ‘OK’ or ‘ENTER.’ It varies between Hisense TV remotes.

3. Next, locate and select ‘Network.’

4. You’ll have to configure your Hisense Smart TV to your network connection. Select ‘Network Configuration.’ When prompted, choose ‘Wireless.’

5. Double-check that ‘Network Information’ has your network listed as ‘Connected.’ If not, double-check your network connection. You may have to reboot your modem or router.

6. Locate and select ‘Anyview Stream’ or ‘Anyview Cast.’ It varies between different Hisense Smart TV models. Select ‘On’ if it isn’t already set to ‘On.’

Now that your Hisense Smart TV is configured, the next few steps revolve around using your Android phone or Android device.

7. Connect your Android phone or device to the same network connection your Hisense Smart TV is connected to.

8. Launch the app ‘Google Home.’ If you don’t already have it installed, you can locate it on the Google Play Store.

9. Open the Menu. It’s the three horizontal lines located in the top left corner of your screen. Afterwards, select ‘Cast screen / audio’ from the menu.

10. Confirm by select ‘CAST SCREEN / AUDIO’ once again. You’ll be prompted with a list of devices that are capable of mirroring your Android device’s screen. Your Hisense Smart TV should be among the list, if the previous steps were done correctly.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to connect your TV to your network connection, you can always invest in an adapter. Micro USB to HDMI adapters are made for older Android phones, but USB C to HDMI are made for the more newer Android devices that have a USB C port.

Anyview Cast Not Working On Hisense TV?

If Anyview cast is not working on your Hinese TV, it could be because your phone isn’t compatible with the feature. If you’re using an old Android device and you’re trying to do this, casting your screen to your Hisense TV might not work due to compatibility issues.

If you’re trying to use a third-party app such as Google Home to cast to your Hisense TV, it might not work since you’re using a third-party app to cast. With Hisense TV, all you need to do to cast your phone screen is Anyview cast, you don’t need to use third-party apps such as Google Home.

Another thing you can do if Anyview cast is not working is to turn off both devices and try to re-establish the connection again. Refreshing both devices might get rid of the bug that’s not allowing the cast to work.

Connect iPhone Devices to Hisense Smart TV

Since Hisense Smart TVs are Android-based, you won’t be able to connect unless you use an HDMI cable. However, if you own Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Chromecast, you can use those as an alternative, considering their sibling apps are iOS compatible.

1. Get your hands on a HDMI-to-Lightning Adapter and an HDMI cable. Your iOS device uses a Lightning port, of which the adapter comes equipped with.

2. Plug the smaller end, it’s identical to your charger, into the Lightning port.

3. Plug the HDMI cable into the HDMI-to-Lightning Adapter, either end of the cable will work because both ends are identical.

4. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the Hisense Smart TV.

5. Your Hisense Smart TV remote has an ‘Input’ button. Press it.

6. Locate the HDMI input source that matches the same port as your iOS device. Press ‘OK’ or ‘ENTER’ (depending on the Hisense Smart TV model) to confirm and the channel will switch to your iOS device.

You can also cast your iPhone using anyview cast to your Hisense smart tv. To do so, you’ll need to download Anyview on both your Smart TV and iPhone. From here, you need to open Anyview on your Hisense TV and wait for the external device to connect. You then need to make sure that your iPhone is connected to WIFI.

Once you see your device, open the app and look for Smart TV on the WIFI list. From here, select it. You will then see a new screen mirror on your iPhone. Make sure to select screen mirror, then you’ll be able to see your iPhones screen on your Hisense TV.

If you want to connect your phone to your Hisense tv without wifi, using a HDMI cable is the best way to go about it. Using an HDMI cable will allow you to cast to your Hisense tv without having to use WIFI. From here, you can watch and share videos from your device to your tv screen, or you can watch tv shows and movies if your device is connected to an internet source.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you’ll need a Lightning Digital AV Adapter that converts the Lightning port on the bottom of your device to HDMI. This will allow you to mirror your screen to your TV.

If you have an Android device, some come with an HDMI port onboard, but most will require a USB-C to HDMI adaptor. If you have a Samsung device, then you’ll require the USB-C to HDMI adaptor. If your Android device uses microUSB instead of USB-C, a MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) adaptor is needed.

Mircasting Your Devices Using Anyview Cast

Miracasting is like using an HDMI cable to display your device, but without the HDMI cable. Many smart devices have the capability, but it’s not always reliable and can be a pain to use consistently. Luckily has Anyview cast that you can use reliably using to cast your screen to your TV.

The upside is Miracasting uses Wi-Fi Direct, meaning, you don’t need a Wi-Fi network connection to mirror your device. The devices share a link with each other, rather than through a network connection.

Connecting your phone to a Hisense Smart TV is fairly simple and, if you had to choose, connecting through a Wi-Fi network connection is far better than using Miracast, for now.
