Mirror Android Screen to Chromecast: Tips

Welcome! In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of mirroring your Android phone or tablet screen to a Chromecast. This can be accomplished either via Wi-Fi or over the internet from any location around the globe. 🌍 Let’s dive in!


Downloading the Screen Mirroring App

Begin by downloading and opening the screen mirroring app on your Android device. This app can be found in the Play Store. 📲


Connecting to Your Chromecast

Select your Chromecast compatible device from the list in the app. Make sure that your device is connected to the same Wi-Fi as your Chromecast. Hit the ‘Start Mirroring’ option to proceed. ✔️


Granting App Permissions

Upon launching the app for the first time, it will request permission for screen recording. Grant the necessary permissions. If you’d like to transmit your device’s sound as well, you’ll need to confirm this separately. Now, your Android display should appear on your Chromecast device. 👍


Enjoy Viewing on Larger Screen

You can start consuming content from TikTok, Instagram or watching your holiday videos on your bigger screen. Make sure that the sound switch is activated in the app settings if the sound is not transmitted. 🎬


Sharing Your Screen Over Internet

The app also offers a ‘Mirror Over Internet’ feature if you wish to share your screen with someone outside your home network. 🌐


Method 1: Install the App on Receiver’s Device

Start by installing the app on the receiver’s device. Connect to your Chromecast and share the displayed code with the sender’s device. 🔄


Method 2: Connect through a Chrome-based Browser

This method doesn’t require app installation and can be done through supported browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Brave, or Opera. Access the link from a computer or Android device, the sender then enters the displayed code and selects ‘Connect’. Your screen will be mirrored to the Chromecast, no matter where in the world the receiver is. 🚀
