  • macOS: These devices can screen mirror or stream content to Apple TV using native AirPlay (only available on Apple laptops released in 2012 or later). Additionally, Reflector turns Windows computers, Android devices and Amazon Fire TV into compatible AirPlay receivers.Note: Third-party screen mirroring software such as Ditto and AirParrot allow Mac users to mirror or stream content to Chromecast, Apple TV or Reflector-enabled devices with additional features not provided by standard AirPlay.

  • Windows: Newer Windows devices and old Android devices use Miracast screen mirroring technology. Compatible Miracast receivers for Surface Pros and other Windows devices include the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, Amazon Fire TV stick (sometimes) and Roku, to name a few. Neither Google nor Apple support Miracast. However, the Ditto screen mirroring solution allows Windows users to mirror and stream content to Apple TVs, Chromecasts and Reflector-enabled devices.In general, the Miracast protocol is not as straightforward as its AirPlay and Google Cast counterparts. Knowing which devices use Miracast, which receivers they can connect to and the performance of those connections will require some research for the end user.
