How to install the Plecto TV app and connect slideshows to your Samsung TV.

Last updated: Oct. 26, 2021

Plecto has a TV app for Samsung TVs that is available on Samsung Apps. We recommend installing the Plecto TV app as it displays your slideshows with increased performance compared to using the built-in browsers. The app is more reliable than the TV browsers and guarantees that all the features are supported. The Plecto TV app is currently available for Samsung and LG TVs.

You need to have a Samsung account and be signed in to install the Plecto TV app on your smart TV.
In addition, the minimum version of the Tizen operating system required for the app to run on your Samsung TV is 2.3.

To install the Plecto TV app on your Samsung TV:

  • Press the home button on your TV remote and go to Apps.
  • Click on the search icon in the upper-right corner, then type "Plecto" in the search bar. Alternatively, you can find the Plecto app in the Lifestyle category in Samsung Apps.
  • Click "Install," then "Open" to open the Plecto app.

Note: If you do not have a Samsung account or have not signed in on your TV, the TV will ask you to sign in to continue installing the Plecto app. Go to this Samsung support page to learn how to set up your smart TV.

Once you have installed and opened the Plecto TV app on your Samsung TV, it will now display the Plecto TV page. To activate your TV, you can use a four-digit code or a QR code. To use the QR code, you need to sign in to Plecto from an internet browser on your mobile device. Read this article to learn more about activating your TV.

  • If you want to connect a slideshow to your TV with a QR code, open the camera app (iOS) or QR code scanner (Android) on your mobile device and point it at the QR code displayed on the TV screen.
