Please, would it be possible to have the Screen Mirroring and Smart View option for Samsung Galazy a12? The a10 variant has one, so hopefully this will have one too in the next upcoming updates 🙏

Hi good eve, a12 user here.

You can't install Smart View and Screen mirroring on a12.

The opposite app you can install for that is "Smart Things" on the galaxy store.

I wondered why a12 doesn't have those features (Smart View & Screen Mirroring) but a10 and a11 has it.
I hope Samsung will release those features for a12 on One UI 4.

Smart View is still present on some devices, but it may vary. A12 doesn't have this feature for now, but hopefully one One Ui 4 have. So let's see that feature if it's present on One ui 4 once available in our devices.

I am really missing this feature.

It's used it a lot on Samsung A11.

Is there a place (site) where users can vote a new functionality for the next updates?

Any method that requires wifi isn't a work around for the Smart View service built in to older phones.  It does not need wifi to work. Instead of using Chromecast , Smart Things does the same thing the key distinction is you must have wifi. 

It's silly, I can use my A12 as a wifi Hotspot to give my TV access to the internet, but not share my phones screen with the same TV without "extra" "**bleep**"  it seems like Samsung got complaints from the cell providers because we could use OUR phones to watch app content on a TV instead of burning up tethering or Hotspot data allotment.
