How To Mirror Android Screen On Your TV
Mirroring your Android smartphone or tablet to a TV used to be quite an ordeal, which usually involved rooting the phone or using a bunch of cables. In this tutorial, we are going to be showing you how to easily mirror your Android device’s display to your TV, both wirelessly and via cable.
If your TV supports WiFi then this is the way to go, if it doesn’t, then please skip to the second method. Before going any further, though, make sure your TV is on and that it is connected to the same WiFI network as your Android device. The process is very simple.
Go to your device’s settings
Look for a tab called ‘Screen Mirroring’. Other common names for the particular functionality include Wireless Display, Miracast and Screen share.
Hit the refresh button to see your smart TV in the list of devices.
Once your TV emerges in the list, tap on the respective tab to connect the two devices.
Assuming that that’s the first time you are trying to pair your Android device with your TV, then a pop-up will most likely appear on the TV, asking you to accept or reject the connection request. Hit accept and your phone’s display will instantly appear on your TV.
In case your TV does not support WiFi, or you just want to avoid the lag that comes with WiFi mirroring, you can seamlessly stream your Android device’s screen to your TV via an HDMI cable -there are plenty of affordable options on Amazon.
If your phone has a microUSB port look for ‘microUSB to HDMI cable’. If it packs a Type-C port, then look for ‘Type C to HDMI cable’. We have included one product for each case in the buttons below.
Once you have the cable in your hands, plug in the HDMI end to your TV’s HDMI port and the other end to your phone’s USB connection port. Switch on your TV and look for the HDMI outport. Select it and then your phone’s display should appear on the TV.
