There are several ways to cast your Android screen to a large screen wirelessly using Chromecast or apps like Airdrop or ApowerMirror. But what if I tell you there’s a windows inbuilt option or app using which you can mirror your android phone in just no time.
There are just few things you need and you’re good to go.
- Same WiFi connection on your windows and android phone.
- Windows 10 installed.
- HDMI Cable if want to display on bigger screen.
Just open Windows 10’s Start menu and type “Connect”. If you don’t see this app, you need to upgrade to the Anniversary Update. When you’ll open a message will appear that your PC is now ready for you to connect wirelessly. That’s it. You don’t need to mess with any firewall or network server settings. Just open the app whenever you want to cast.
Open your Android phone settings, I’m using my OnePlus 5 running Android 9.0 so in my case its under Bluetooth & device connection > Connection preferences > Cast . Or you can swipe down toggle menu from the top of the screen and select the Cast icon and select your PC. If you don’t see a cast or mirroring option in toggle menu, you probably need to edit the quick settings menu and rearrange the icons.
Then you’ll be able to see the same as per image below :
You’ll see a connection notification will appear on your Windows 10 PC in the Connect app window.
It’s worth noting that it will display your Android screen in portrait mode and landscape if you launch an app that supports that such mx player or apps like Amazon Prime and Netflix which you can see in the example below.
Now if you want make it work for your TV you just need a HDMI Cable. From which you can connect your TV with your windows 10 PC and enjoy on bigger screen.
