And this is very convenient, as it allows you to expand the functionality and make the use easier and more convenient. For example, you can control your LG Smart TV with your smartphone (turning it into a remote control), or display images and videos from your smartphone on your TV screen.
What is it for? Pros of connecting a smartphone to an LG TV:
There are many benefits to syncing your smartphone. And here are the main ones:
- You can watch photos and videos from the “Gallery” of your smartphone on a large TV screen in high quality.

- It is very convenient to browse various sites, as well as read documents and view presentations.
How to connect a smartphone to an LG TV: step by step instructions
Displaying images and videos from a smartphone to an LG TV is possible in several ways, both using a cable and using wireless networks.
Screen Share is a program specially designed to synchronize your phone and LG Smart TV and watch content on the big screen. The transfer of images and videos is carried out using
Miracast standard (Wi-Fi Direct technology). The connection can be made with 100% probability if you have an LG TV and a smartphone. Option may not be supported with smartphones from other manufacturers.
In order to start the synchronization process, you need:
- Press the Home button on your LG TV remote control.
- Find and enable Screen Share app.
- Make sure that the smartphone has Android operating system firmware higher than 4.2 version.
- Activate Miracast mode (in some cases, it may be called AllShare Cast). If your smartphone does not have this option, you will need to download Miracast app on google play.
- In the list of devices available for synchronization, select your TV and connect, following the instructions on the screen.
Important: manufacturers recommend using the phone in horizontal mode and blocking the change of screen positions so that the picture on the TV screen does not appear rotated 90 °.
Owners of non-LG smartphones can try to display images and videos from their phone to their TV using Wi-Fi Direct. This is possible if your LG TV is a modern model and supports Wi-Fi.
To sync your smartphone and LG TV via Wi-Fi Direct:
- Make sure your smartphone is running Android operating system with firmware above 4.0.
- In “Settings” select “Wireless networks”, then item Wi-Fi.

- In the list of devices available for synchronization that opens, select the name of your smartphone.
- A connection request will appear on the phone itself, confirm it by following the instructions.
Connecting a smartphone to an LG TV via HDMI is possible if the phone is equipped with a mini HDMI interface; in other cases, you will need to additionally purchase a special adapter.
- Insert one end of the HDMI cable into the back of your TV and the other into your phone port.
- Go to the “Main Menu” of the TV and select the “Signal Source” section / Press the Input button.
- Select the HDMI source that the smartphone is connected to as the source. The connector number can be seen on the back of the TV, but in most cases it is the only one active.
In this way, you can display images and videos on LG TV from almost any smartphone: LG, Samsung, Huavei, Lenovo. In order to sync iPhone, you need a special Lightning to HDMI adapter.
- Using other connectors
Also, different models of smartphones can be connected to LG TV using different connectors. For example, a number of LG phone models (including the LG 2X) are equipped with a dedicated Micro HDMI port or the more modern USB Type-C. Also, a number of smartphones of democratic models support the MHL standard (Mobil High Definition Link), with the help of which the signal is received directly from the data transfer port and Micro-USB charging. MHL analog. SlimPort standard implemented in many LG smartphones, allowing video transmission in 1080p resolution.
All of these methods are suitable for older models of smartphones. For newer models, it is recommended to prefer wireless communication methods.
How to display an image from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet to a TV over Wi-Fi? TV as a wireless monitor [Intel WiDi and Miracast]
I very often have to answer questions that sound something like this: “Is it possible to use a TV as a wireless monitor for a laptop or smartphone?” “How to display an image on a TV from a tablet, computer, or phone, but not via cable, but via Wi-Fi?” “How to make it so that everything on a tablet or smartphone is displayed on the TV, and that everything is in the air?”.
In this article, I will try to answer the questions posed. We will figure out whether it is possible without a cable to display an image on a modern TV, and how to do it using Intel WiDi or Miracast technologies.
Before proceeding with the main part, in which I plan to tell you how you can still turn a TV into a wireless monitor, you need to understand something:
It can slow down by air, use a cable
If you want to display a picture on TV from your laptop, in order to play games or watch movies, then it is best to do this via an HDMI cable. There should be no problems with a computer, since now almost every laptop or every video card has HDMI, and even in TVs this is far from uncommon. How to connect all this, read the article How to connect a TV to a computer (laptop) using an HDMI cable? TV as a monitor.
No wireless technology will provide the image quality that you get via a digital HDMI cable (at least for now) Yes, I want it wirelessly, but wireless technology will slow down, albeit not great. And it’s not very pleasant to play games, or watch movies with some delays in the image.
You can display video and photos on TV without special technologies
In this article, we are talking about duplicating absolutely everything that happens on the screen of your device to the TV.
But, in order to simply broadcast photos or videos from your computer, smartphone, or tablet to TV via Wi-Fi, no special technology is needed. Almost every modern TV supports DLNA technology (if there is Smart TV, then it definitely supports) Computers and mobile devices can also transfer media content using DLNA technology. Android definitely can, iOS too (if I’m not mistaken). and in Windows Phone, this opportunity will appear after updating to version 8.1 (at the time of this writing, the official update will wait about another month)
To set up the broadcast of photos and films over the air from your computer to your TV, see these instructions:
If the first article is suitable only for LG TVs, then the second one can be called universal.
Well, if you still need to completely duplicate the picture on the TV, and even without wires, then read on.
Which devices support Intel WiDi and Miracast?
As for computers (laptops). then Intel WiDi technology requires a 4th generation Intel processor, Intel graphics, and Intel wireless Wi-Fi adapter. As you already understood, not every laptop can boast of such a configuration. Or, you need a special attachment.
If we talk about mobile devices, then they should also support Intel WiDi, or Miracast. If you plan to use these technologies, then see the characteristics of the devices and check the availability of these technologies before purchasing.
You can see detailed information on devices that support this technology on the official website http://www.intel.ua/content/www/ua/uk/architecture-and-technology/intel-wireless-display.html
Image on TV from laptop or smartphone via Wi-Fi
I noticed that many people want, for example, to launch an online movie on a tablet, in a browser and display it on the TV. But in order to broadcast a movie via DLNA, you must first download it. Not everyone likes this, and not everyone knows how to download movies on a tablet or smartphone. If you have a Smart TV, then you can watch online movies directly from your TV, and you do not need any additional devices for this. How to do this, read this article.
There are two main technologies that allow wirelessly duplicating everything that you see on the screen of your laptop or mobile device on a TV. These are Intel Wireless Display Technology (Intel WiDi). and Miracast. Most likely, you have already heard about these technologies, or saw them in the settings of your devices.
If you explain their work in your own words, then everything happens like this: the image that is displayed on the screen of your computer or mobile device is compressed and transmitted via Wi-Fi to the TV. All this happens very quickly, and the delays are almost invisible.
You just turn on Miracast, or Intel WiDi on the TV (if it supports this technology, if not, you need a special HDMI adapter). and on a mobile device, or on a laptop using a special program, start the broadcast. The devices are connected and the picture is transmitted to the TV. By the way, a Wi-Fi network (router) is not needed at all, the TV itself creates a network to which you just need to connect. Something like Wi-Fi Direct.
At first glance, everything is very simple. But, at the moment, not all devices support these wireless technologies. Although, I think that in a year, this will no longer be a problem.
By the way, Intel WiDi (starting from version 3.5) is compatible with Miracast. Therefore, the technology from Intel can be considered universal.
Intel WiDi and Miracast on TVs
We figured out the devices that will transmit the image over the air, now with regard to the TVs that will display this very image. The TV must either have built-in support for Intel WiDi / Miracast, or you will need to buy a special receiver that connects to the HDMI connector of your TV.
As far as I understand, almost all TVs of popular manufacturers: LG, Samsung, Toshiba. starting from the 2013 line, and which have Smart TV support, have built-in receivers and are able to work with the Intel WiDi / Miracast standard.
If the TV does not have built-in support, then, as I already wrote, an external HDMI adapter will help. By the way, the image goes through it even better than through the built-in.
For example, the LG 32LN575U TV is an inexpensive model with a Smart TV function, there is support for Intel WiDi / Miracast. It looks like this:
Perhaps, somehow I will demonstrate the work of this technology, but this will already be in another article.
Let’s summarize. If you want to use the TV as the main monitor or the second monitor for your computer or mobile device, and you do not have an urgent need to connect them over the air, then it is best to do it with a cable. It’s cheaper and the picture quality will be better.
Do not forget that using DLNA technology, and via Wi-Fi, you can broadcast photos and videos to your TV. But you won’t be able to display the image by launching the game in the browser, or on the desktop.
If you still want everything that is displayed on the screen of your computer, smartphone, or tablet to be displayed on the TV screen, then look towards Intel WiDi and Miracast technologies. If your devices do not support these standards, then you will have to buy special set-top boxes and receivers.
If you are only planning to buy new devices, and are going to use these wireless technologies, then before buying, see if they support these standards.
I also recommend watching the video. Review of Intel WiDi technology from Natasha.
Checking Android Screen Casting Support and Enable Broadcast
In order not to waste time, I recommend that you first make sure that your phone or tablet supports displaying images on wireless displays: the fact is that not every Android device is capable of this. many of them belonging to the lower and partly to the middle price segment are not support Miracast.
- On Android 9 (in the case of a clean OS), go to Settings. Connected devices. Connection settings. Broadcast and make sure that the option to transfer images from the phone is enabled in the menu, as in the screenshot below.
- On Samsung Galaxy smartphones, open the notification area completely and see if there is a Smart View icon there (keep in mind that icons in the notification area can be scrolled and the desired one may not be on the first page).
- On earlier versions of the OS, go to Settings. Display and see if there is an item “Broadcast” (in Android 6 and 7) or “Wireless display (Miracast)” (Android 5 and some devices with branded skins). If the item is present, you can immediately switch it to the “Enabled” state using the menu (called by three points) on pure Android or the On-Off switch in some shells.
- Another location where you can detect the presence or absence of a wireless image transfer function (“Screen transfer” or “Broadcast”) is the quick settings area in the Android notification area (however, it may be that the function is supported, but there are no buttons to turn on the broadcast, or it is hidden and can be enabled in the settings, as shown in the video below).
If you are unable to find wireless display settings, Screen Mirroring, Smart View, Broadcast, Miracast, or WiDi, try searching through the settings by going to the settings and using the search field. If nothing similar is found, it is highly likely that your device does not support wireless image transmission to a TV or other compatible screen.
How to enable Miracast Image Broadcast (WiDI) support on Samsung, LG, Sony and Philips TVs
Usually, in order to be able to transfer the image from the phone to the TV, it is enough that the TV is turned on and it has the Wi-Fi adapter turned on, but sometimes the wireless display function is turned off on the TV and you may need to turn it on in the settings first. Below are examples of such settings, on your TV the items may differ slightly, but the logic is usually the same and you can find the required parameters.
- Samsung. on the TV remote, press the Source button and select Screen Mirroring. Also in the network settings of some Samsung TVs, there may be additional items for setting screen mirroring.
- LG. go to settings (Settings button on the remote). Network. Miracast (Intel WiDi) and enable this function.
- Sony Bravia. Press the source selection button on your TV remote (usually at the top left) and select Screen mirroring. Also, if you enable Built-in Wi-Fi and a separate Wi-Fi Direct item in the TV network settings (go to Home, open Settings. Network there), the broadcast can be started without selecting a signal source (TV will automatically switch to wireless broadcast), but the TV must already be on.
- Philips. the option is enabled in Settings. Network settings. Wi-Fi Miracast.
Theoretically, the items may change from model to model, but almost all today’s TVs with a Wi-Fi module support image reception via Wi-Fi, and I’m sure you will be able to find the desired menu item.
How to Transfer Picture from Android Phone to TV
Not all owners of modern Smart TV and Android smartphones or tablets know that it is possible to transfer images from a phone to a TV via Wi-Fi using Miracast technology. There are other ways, for example, using an MHL cable or Chromecast (a separate device that connects to the HDMI port of the TV and receives an image via Wi-Fi) or using DLNA when connected to the same network.
In this manual, you will learn in detail how to use the ability to broadcast images with sound from your Android 9, 8, 7 and earlier phone to a TV that supports Miracast technology (Screen Mirroring). At the same time, despite the fact that the connection is carried out via Wi-FI, the presence of a router at home is not required, in any case for the direct transmission, which is discussed in the first part of the manual. Also may be of interest: How to use an Android and iOS phone as a TV remote.
Transferring images to an Android TV via Wi-Fi (Miracast)
Be sure to turn on Wi-Fi on your Android phone or tablet before you start, otherwise the following steps will show that no wireless screens are available.
Transferring an image from your phone to your TV may take slightly different steps depending on your Android version and smartphone brand, but the following options are usually available:
- In the notification area, find the “Broadcast” icon, and after searching for available TVs, click on the desired one and wait for the broadcast to start.
- If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, find the Smart View icon in the notification area, tap on it, wait for the TV to be found, tap on it and wait for the broadcast to start.
- Go to Settings. Display. Broadcast (or Wireless Miracast Screen), your TV will be displayed in the list (it must be turned on at this moment). Click on it and wait for the connection to be completed. On some TVs, you will need to “allow” to connect (a prompt will appear on the TV screen).
- Open the list of quick actions in the Android notification area, select the “Broadcast” button (may not be available), after finding your TV, click on it.
That’s all. if everything went well, then after a short time you will see the screen of your smartphone or tablet on the TV (in the photo below, the “Camera” application is open on the device and the image is duplicated on TV).
You may also find additional information useful:
- The connection does not always happen the first time (sometimes it tries to connect for a long time and nothing comes out), but if everything that is required is included and supported, it is usually possible to achieve a positive result.
- Image and sound transfer rates may not be the best, and most games will not work like this.
- If you have launched some kind of video on your phone, and it is transmitted to the TV as a black screen (which may be in some players and with protected content), it is better to use the transfer methods described below in the section with additional image transfer methods.
- If you usually use portrait (vertical) screen orientation, then by turning on automatic rotation and rotating the device, you will make the image occupy the entire TV screen.

Additional options for transferring images, videos and photos from Android to TV
If your task is to transfer videos and photos to a TV, and not just transfer a screen with all its limitations, I recommend using other methods, but keep in mind that, unlike the previous method, it requires both TV and smartphone to be connected to the same networks (via cable or Wi-Fi. does not matter):
- An application for casting to XCast TV, available for free on the Play Store and supporting DLNA transmission (you can broadcast videos and photos from your phone), Chromecast and even AirPlay. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id= cast.video.screenmirroring.casttotv
- Cast Web Video app, which allows you to cast images not only from your phone, but also from network video services, is available here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=castwebbrowsertotv.castwebvideo.webvideocaster
- Do not forget that if the TV is on and you are playing YouTube videos on your phone, you can click on the broadcast icon in the application on your phone to start playing the same video on a TV with the ability to control on Android.
Hopefully one of the suggested solutions worked for your phone and TV sharing scenario.
Wireless connectivity options
Naturally, many don’t want to mess with cables and adapters, so wireless looks like a cost-effective alternative. It is enough to pair it via Wi-Fi or a router and that’s it. Now let’s take a closer look at how to output video from your phone to the TV using a wireless connection.
What does such a connection give
After connecting to TV, it will be possible to use all the functionality of your phone on the big screen. This means that you can:
- reproduce films, photographs;
- play games, run a variety of applications;
- fully work on the Internet;
- make various presentations.
over, on some TV models, the connected phone can fully take over the functionality of the control panel. An excellent solution if the native one is broken. As you can see, it is worth figuring out how to transfer a video or other media file from a phone to a TV.
All cable connections
First of all, let’s decide how to broadcast video from a phone to a TV using a cable.
This technology is available on all Smart TVs. However, the smartphone must be based on Android and at least the fourth version.
- On a mobile phone, open the list with valid Wi-Fi connections.
- We find Wi-Fi Direct, if not, we find it in the additional settings.
- On TV, we find the same way by connecting Wi-Fi Direct.
- The search will begin, after which, the phone will receive a connection request, it remains only to confirm it.
Setting Wi-Fi Direct on LG TV
A convenient way to display any picture, watch a movie online.
Miracast technology enables direct Wi-Fi data transmission between smartphone and TV. Almost all modern Android smartphones are equipped with similar functionality. As for TV, only models that support Smart TV.
It should be borne in mind that manufacturers call this technology differently:
- LG, Panasonic and Philips. Miracast.
- Samsung. Screen Mirroring.
- Sony. MirrorLink.
Regardless of the device models, the connection is identical:
- go to the mobile menu and open “connections”;
- select “other networks” and launch the required technology;
- in the TV menu select Miracast, MirrorLink or Screen Mirroring;
- a window with available devices will be displayed on the mobile screen, where the name of TV will be;
- by clicking on it, it remains to wait for synchronization.
As soon as a stable connection is established, the contents of the smartphone screen will be displayed on the TV.
DLNA technology is considered to be absolutely universal. Many modern Android devices are equipped with it right away. For example, Sony Xperia owners do not even need to figure out how to transfer the desired image from the phone to the TV. They are required to click on a special icon above the image and select their TV. In just a few seconds, you can watch the selected media file on the screen.
Apple devices are not equipped with DLNA, but with the help of a special PlugPlayer application, Twonky Beam, this inconvenience is safely eliminated.
Modern devices provide wired and wireless connections. Regardless of the chosen method, all manipulations can be performed by each user.
You can work with any smartphones, regardless of the manufacturer and operating system. All you need is to purchase a special adapter HDMI, USB, etc. Some modern smartphones are immediately equipped with the necessary connector for output to an external screen.
The most convenient and simple technology. To do this, you need to get a microUSB to HDMI adapter and perform the following manipulations:
- turn on the TV, activate the HDMI signal source;
- using an adapter, we connect the devices to each other;
- automatic broadcast setting is activated.
It looks like an adapter from microUSB to HDMI
If for some reason the setting did not start, open the gadget menu and set the required parameters manually. After these steps, the picture from the mobile will be broadcast on TV.
Using a SlimPort adapter
The SlimPort standard is found on LG and Samsung devices and acted as an alternative to MHL. How to play video from phone to TV in such a situation. use a special adapter. In comparison with the previous version, a better and more stable picture is provided. In this case, the adapter does not require additional power supply. Although the device has a port, it can be used to recharge the mobile.
It looks like a SlimPort adapter
It should be noted that the technology is demanding on the cable. It is better to purchase a branded product, since budget options may interfere or not work at all.
This method does not allow duplicating the image, since the TV sees the phone as a drive. However, it will be possible to view individual video files. The connection principle is as follows:
- We connect the USB cable to the smartphone and TV.
- Press the Source key on the remote control and set the desired signal source, we carry out the same manipulations on the mobile.
The TV will launch a menu that opens access to all the folders on the phone. All available files can be opened using the TV remote control. This option is convenient for watching movies or photos that are stored on the phone.
How to broadcast an image from your phone screen to your TV screen wirelessly
Modern phones, smartphones, tablets allow you to broadcast the image to the TV screen. On this page, you will find detailed instructions on how to wirelessly display images from Android phone to TV. You can easily connect to a TV from your phone and watch YouTube, videos, photos, WhatsApp, applications, games, documents and everything that is shown on the screen of your smartphone. At the same time, you do not need to additionally download and install drivers or programs, as you had to do on old phones, in Android devices everything is already provided for this.
Let’s see what you need to broadcast video from Android to TV.
– The TV you want to connect to must be Smart TV.
– Both devices must be connected to the Internet via the same Wi-Fi network.
– Well, the phone itself must support the “Broadcast” function.
If you have a modern Android smartphone and Smart TV, then you can display the image on the TV through the “Broadcast” function in two ways. The first way is through settings, the second way is through the quick access panel to various useful functions of the phone. Both methods are basically the same, but I think the second method will be more comfortable and faster, well, you decide for yourself. And I also wanted to say that it makes no difference what kind of TV you have LG, Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi, Android TV, the main thing is to have a Smart TV.
The first way to broadcast images from smartphone to TV.
– Open “Settings” on your phone.
– In the settings, go to the “Connected devices” item.
– Next, the item “Connection settings”.
– Next, turn on the “Broadcast” item, after which the search for devices for connection and broadcasting will be performed as shown in the attached screenshot below. If the search does not occur, then try the second method, sometimes it happens.
– Do not forget to turn on the reception of broadcasting images from the screen of your phone, tablet or other device in the Smart TV settings. The name of this function may differ depending on the TV, for example, on Samsung TV, it is “Screen Mirroring”. In TV devices from other manufacturers, there may be “Wireless projection” or another name, I think when you start looking in the settings, you will immediately recognize by the form.
The second way to transfer the image from the phone to the TV through the panel.
– Pull down from the top edge of the phone screen and see a panel for quick access to various useful Android functions.
– In the panel that opens, click on the “Broadcast” icon and then the search for the TV will start to which you want to connect via Wi-Fi. (Do not forget to enable Screen Mirroring projection on the TV in the settings.) If the panel does not have the “Broadcast” icon, then most likely it is on the second screen, slide the panel to the left or right. If not here, then add it there. Click on the pencil, which is usually located at the bottom of the panel and click on “Drag the desired elements” and then drag the “Broadcast” icon up. Look at the attached screenshot below, where the necessary items are highlighted.
After the phone detects the TV, we press connect and display the image from the Android screen on the Smart TV screen.
Connecting iPhone to TV to stream video
We will not consider how to connect TV and smartphone from Apple. Since it is obvious. In this case, everything is quite simple. you click on the pairing button in the menu, and you are already streaming the video from your phone to Apple TV.
Much more difficult when you are using an iPhone, but a TV with Android or other firmware from popular or not so popular manufacturers.
The first step is to connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network:
- Next, download the Youtube application to your smartphone and TV. The download source is not important. Since most TVs have their own markets. For example, LG has its own market with applications;
- We launch the video through the YouTube application on the iPhone and find an icon in the form of a TV screen and radio waves at the top of the window. Click it;
In this way, you can not only broadcast videos from YouTube, but also music. But for this you need to go to the Youtube Music section
As for transferring a screen with pictures or iPhone files to TV, here you have to fork out for 6. Since you need to download the application from the App Store. It is different for each brand of TV. Here the instructions for each manufacturer are different. Therefore, you will have to search for the application yourself, understand it and connect your smartphone to TV for broadcast.
Transferring picture to TV from Android 9 smartphone
In newer models of smartphones and tablets with Android, built-in technologies appear, based on or functionally similar to Google Cast. Different manufacturers call it in their own way. For example, in Samsung smartphones it is Smart View, in Xiaomi, Honor. Cast, in others it can be called simply “Screen Recorder”.
To activate the function and transfer the image without any problems, you must at least have devices with the same ninth version of Android. Or released under the same brand.
The TV does not need settings, the connection should happen automatically.
In this case, the broadcast activation process is very simple, you need to open the quick access menu on your smartphone:
- In the menu, find the function that is responsible for broadcasting. In our case, this is Smart View on a Samsung smartphone;
In this case, both devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. In some cases, Bluetooth activation is required on the phone
In the quick access menu, sometimes the icon for connecting to a TV can be overlooked. This is due to the fact that in the latest versions of Android quite a lot of applications and functions have been added. And they all don’t fit on the first screen. Click on the line below the given window or the pencil icon to expand the entire list.
Broadcast video from phone to TV using HDMI cable
Perhaps the most universal, but not common, is the method of transmitting video to a TV screen via a phone. an HDMI cable.It is easy to implement if your TV has a port for this type of cable. Its absence on a smartphone is easily solved using an adapter from HDMI to microUSB or USB Type-C, depending on the model and manufacturer of the mobile device.
In the same way, you can connect a laptop or computer to a TV to watch a video on it, streaming video from a browser.
Or even use it as your primary monitor. It is also important to support the smartphone MHL or HDMI
This information can be found in the instructions for the smartphone. But if there is no access to it, the Checker for MHL mobile application will help to check support
Install it and start the check by clicking on the “Check MHL” button. As a result, the result will be displayed in the next window. The application does not have Russian, the response phrase will need to be translated in the translator.
Even if your smartphone or TV does not support HDMI, you can still connect the devices with an RCA wire (“bells”, “tulips”) with an adapter to the jack in your phone. This will allow you to stream the video from your device to your TV.
Application for transferring data from phone to TV
Today, applications on Google Play solve almost any problem in smartphones and other Android devices. With their help, you can use the voice assistant in your smartphone, listen to podcasts or create text with your voice. To stream your video to your TV, try using the Cast to TV. app. Previously it was called XCast TV But today application developers are changing the names of their programs in favor of matching popular search queries.
This application is more suitable for transferring video files to the screen. Its interface is similar to that of an MP3 player, where there are buttons to rewind, stop and change files in the list.
It also has the ability to create a local queue of files to be played on the TV. Through Broadcast to TV, you can stream images or make slideshows by selecting certain photos. You can stream video from the Internet. But on Smart TV, this feature is not an advantage.
The application will work with most models of smart TVs and devices: Fire Stick, Xbox, Roku, Chromocast, Panasonic, LG, Sony, Apple TV. It is a complete media center for Android devices with support for almost all TV platforms.
How to stream video from phone to TV
Our house is gradually acquiring more and more digital and smart devices: a smartphone, computer, electric kettle, vacuum cleaner, TV. This list can be continued for a long time. But it is also important for us that some of these devices can interact. This article will show you how to stream or transfer video files from your phone to your TV.
- Broadcast video from phone to TV using HDMI cable
- Transferring picture to TV from Android 9 smartphone
- Connecting iPhone to TV to stream video

Broadcast to TV program for smartphone
There is another useful development in Google Play applications. “Broadcast to TV”. It is analogous to the previous one with similar functions. And it is also free for home use. For it to work, you need to connect your devices to the same Wi-Fi network so that they can work locally. At the same time, even in the absence of the Internet, you can transfer files to the TV.
The application supports most of the popular TV firmware. And an easy-to-use file player.
|Built-in browser.||Knows how to search for videos on the Internet. You can quickly find the picture you need to watch it on the big TV screen.|

|Saving data.||If you accidentally stop playing and turn off the device, the application will remember this place. And the next time you turn it on, it will start playing from it.|
|Capturing video.||The application is capable of recording real-time videos on YouTube.|
If your TV for some reason does not receive data, make sure it has the necessary functions. Also, make sure that it is currently connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the smartphone. If you can’t connect your device with a cable, use the Android or iPhone app. Or a built-in feature that lets you stream video from your mobile phone to your home TV.
