    Screen mirroring isn’t the most popular thing people do with their devices. However, there are plenty of niche use cases for such a technology. Some people like it for streaming. Others use it for technical support. Whatever the reason, we hope we can help you achieve it. Here are the best screen mirroring apps for Android and other ways too!

    HERE ARE SOME MORE ANDROID TOOLS YOU MIGHT FIND HELPFUL!

    Chrome Remote Desktop
    Price: Free
    DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
    Chrome Remote Desktop is one of the more popular screen mirroring apps. It doesn’t let you mirror your phone screen on a computer. In fact, it does exactly the opposite. The app lets you look at your computer desktop on your mobile device. It works best with tablets. However, it’s perfectly usable on a phone. It should also work on any computer with Google Chrome browser support. The app is also free with no in-app purchases.

    Google Home
    Price: Free / Varies
    DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
    Google Home is the app for Google Home, Chromecast, and other Google devices. You can directly cast your screen from your device to your TV with this app and a Chromecast. It actually works impressively well. However, most of the use cases, like streaming video, are better done on the Chromecast rather than screen mirroring. Still, if you need your phone screen on a TV, this is a great way to do it. You have to purchase a Chromecast or a Chromecast Ultra for this to work. The app is free, at least, and it didn’t bug out or have any major issues during our testing.

    Microsoft Remote Desktop
    Price: Free
    DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
    Microsoft Remote Desktop is a lot like Chrome Remote Desktop. In fact, it does basically the same thing. It shows you your desktop computer. The app supports Windows Professional and Server editions. In addition, it works well for video and sound streaming should the need occur. It’s completely free with no in-app purchases or advertisements. Those running Windows should probably use this one. Otherwise, default to Chrome Remote Desktop for other operating systems.

    TeamViewer
    Price: Free (for individual use)
    DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
    TeamViewer is one of the most popular screen mirroring apps. This one is mainly for diagnostic purposes. You can look at desktops or other mobile devices if needed. It supports HD video and sound transmission, 256-bit AES encryption, and file transfers from both devices. It also supports Mac, Windows, and Linux natively. That’s great news. The app is free to use for individual use. Those running businesses have various payment options.

    Native smartphone and smart TV mirroring
    Price: Free
    DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
    Many smart TVs and smartphones can screen mirror things natively. For instance, many Android devices can cast the screen to virtually anything that has Miracast or Chromecast support. As long as your smart TV or smart dongle or whatever can do it, you can screen mirror without downloading an extra app. It’s the fastest, most efficient way to do screen mirroring as long as you have the proper equipment already in your home or area. It’s worth looking into!
    Native smartphone and smart TV mirroring

    Hardware devices like Chromecast or Kindle Fire Sticks.

    Many of today’s TV streaming dongles have native screen mirroring support. A couple of the options include Amazon’s Fire TV and Google’s Chromecast. There are some limitations to each platform. However, they do tend to work rather well. Those who own a Chromecast can just pop open the app, open the menu, and the cast screen option should be there. This is especially nice for playing mobile games with a controller. The latency is low enough to where it shouldn’t affect the experience in most games. For movies and TV, we recommend just the stock Chromecast or Fire Stick functionality without mirroring.

    Fire TV is a little more complicated. You use your device’s native screen mirroring feature (on Android 4.2 or higher) to connect to Fire TV. This is similar to how it works on compatible smart TVs. Kindle Fire devices can mirror to Fire TV much more easily.

    It takes a little bit of searching around because the options are very numerous. Some TVs can do it and some TVs cannot. Any Android device over Android 4.2 can initiate screen mirroring with a supported TV or streaming stick. Most smart TVs and streaming sticks will work for this. It takes a little tinkering in your menu system, but it does work pretty well once you get it going.

    *Please keep in mind that attempting to stream android to IOS or vice versa will present complications*
