How to Mirror Your iPhone Screen to TV using Chromecast
In the age of smart devices, Chromecast has emerged as a valuable helper for streaming media content from your iPhone and other smart devices to your TV. However, Chromecast doesn’t natively allow you to mirror your iPhone screen to your TV. But don’t worry! We have a complete, easy-to-follow guide for you to achieve this, and it’s completely free! 🙌🎉
Download the ‘TV Mirror’ App
Initially, you’ll require the TV Mirror app from the App Store. Use the search bar to type in ‘TV Mirror for Chromecast.’ This app has proven to be incredible for the task. Once you’ve found it, download and install it. 📲✅
Connect your iPhone and TV
Open your installed TV Mirror app. Ensure that both your iPhone and TV are connected with the same internet connection. Now select the Chromecast device you want to cast to. For example, if your Chromecast is connected to your living room TV, that’s what you’ll select. 📶🖥️
Proceed with the Free Version
Being a free version user, you’ll need to click on ‘Watch Ad’ to proceed. A 15-second ad will appear. Well, it’s not enough time to make a cup of tea ☕, but it’s perfect for watching your tomatoes grow! 🍅😉 After the ad, you’re all set!
Mirror Your Screen
Now, press on ‘TV MirrorCast Screen’ and then tap on ‘Start Broadcast.’ You’ll see a three-second countdown and voila! 🎈🥳 Your iPhone screen should be mirrored on your TV. Explore your photos, play games, and do so much more in a larger viewing frame!
Enjoy, but Be Aware of Pop-ups
One thing to note with this free version is the occasional pop-up urging you to buy the pro version. Despite this, the free version of the app serves its purpose quite impressively. However, if you frequently mirror your screen, purchasing the pro version could be a great investment. 💰👍
That’s it! We hope this guide helps you mirror your iPhone screen to your TV using Chromecast effortlessly.
