Android screen mirroring has been one of the most useful features these days. It enables us to mirror or cast the screen of our phone easily to a Smart TV or a Windows PC. In this article, we show you how to do this.
In a nutshell, you can use the built-in Cast feature. There’s a catch though. This only works as long as your phone and laptop support these features. On android, your manufacturer may or may not include Miracast support on your phone or tablet. However, if your device does support Miracast, this should work.
To make sure it does:
- Go To Settings
- Search for Screencast
- If it is available, it’ll show up and allow you to turn it on
On PC, you need to get the connect app and make sure it supports casting. I’ll show you how to.
