Step 2: Connect your Android device and your TV to the same Wi-Fi network
For Miracast to work, both your Android device and your TV need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. You can do this by going to the settings menu on both devices and selecting the Wi-Fi option. Then, choose the same network name and enter the password if required.
Step 3: Download and install Miracast app on your Android device

You can download and install Miracast app from Google Play Store or from APKPure. Once you have installed the app, open it and grant the necessary permissions.
Step 4: Find and select your TV from the Miracast app
After you open the Miracast app, it will scan for available devices that support screen casting in your current Wi-Fi network. You should see a list of devices on the app’s main screen. Find and select your TV from the list. If you don’t see your TV, make sure that it is turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Android device.
Step 5: Enjoy casting your Android screen to TV
Once you select your TV, the app will establish a connection between your Android device and your TV. You should see a notification on your device that says “Screen mirroring is enabled”. You should also see your device’s screen mirrored on your TV. You can now enjoy watching videos, playing games, browsing photos, or doing anything else on your Android device on a bigger screen.
To stop casting, you can either tap on the notification and select “Disconnect”, or press the back button on the app. You can also turn off the Wi-Fi connection on either device to end the casting session.
Tips and Tricks for Using Miracast
Make sure that both devices are close enough to each other and have a strong Wi-Fi signal for optimal performance.
Avoid using other apps or tasks that consume a lot of bandwidth or CPU power while casting, as they may affect the quality or stability of the screen mirroring.
If you encounter any issues with Miracast, such as lagging, freezing, or disconnecting, try restarting both devices and reconnecting them again.
If you want to cast other types of content such as YouTube videos or Netflix shows, you may need to use other apps or methods that support Chromecast or DLNA instead of Miracast.
