FAQ

Is Casting and Mirroring the Same?

While casting and mirroring are similar concepts, they are not exactly the same. Casting involves streaming content from one device (your Android phone) to another device (your TV) using a specific protocol. On the other hand, mirroring replicates your phone's screen exactly on your TV, displaying everything as it appears on your phone. Both methods have their uses depending on your preferences and the content you want to display.

How Do I Know if My TV Has Screen Mirroring?

To check if your TV supports screen mirroring, refer to your TV's user manual or look for the screen mirroring option in the settings menu. Additionally, you can search for your TV's make and model online to find out if it supports screen mirroring or casting.

Can You Cast to TV Without Internet?

Yes. Although most casting process relies on the network to transmit data from your phone to the TV, some external devices like Chromecast and Fire TV Stick can connect to TV's HDMI input, allowing casting even without an existing network connection.
