Mirror Android Phone Screen to TV
Screen mirroring through Google Home

We are in a family meeting or with friends, suddenly we want to show something that we have on our device, gathering people around to see something on a small screen is not something very comfortable for us to say; Although thanks to Android and Chromecast, it doesn't have to be a hassle, since we can mirror the screen of an Android phone to a TV.

Before starting we must clarify that screen sharing may not be the best method to share content on a television. Many video and photo applications allow us to "stream" to a Chromecast-enabled device, this experience is infinitely more enjoyable and secure..

For this guide we will need an Android device that has version 5.0 or later; Also a device compatible with Android TV or Chromecast.

We are going to start with a method that is very simple, although it is not available on all devices. We swipe down from the top on our device, then do it again so we can expand the quick setting switches..

We will look for the switch that has the label "Screen Cast" and click on it.

A list of devices where we can duplicate the screen will appear. If we see that ours is in the aforementioned list, then we will select it..

We see a warning message, we simply click on "Start now."

Now we will see the mobile screen on the receiving device.

In case we do not have the option to "Transmit screen" in the Settings, we can duplicate the screen through the Google Home app available in the Play Store . Once the app is downloaded, we will open it on our device.

At the bottom of the app, we are going to click on "Cast my screen".

A pop-up window appears where it explains what screen duplication does, we simply click on "Transmit screen".

We see a new message that explains the information visible on the screen. To start we click on "Start now".

If we want to stop transmitting on the screen, we will have to slide our finger down from the top of the screen and press "Disconnect" in the transmission notification.
