The Multi-View feature on Samsung Smart TVs has been presented to allow users do several things simultaneously. Sometimes it’s quite difficult to decide between 2 movies to watch, however, now you even don’t need to choose, as you can watch it at once on the screen, as it would be divided into 2 parts.
However, after you’ve watched everything you want to, you may want to get your screen back to be a whole piece. Fortunately, there is a way to disable the Multi View feature and return to watching one movie, TV show, video, etc on your screen. This article will explain how to disable automatic Multi View on your Samsung TV.
