Can You Mirror An Android Phone To A TV?

Curtis in Raleigh, North Carolina listens on WPTF 680 AM and asked us about mirroring his phone's display

LG ultimate 2

Curtis asked: “I am visually impaired and have an LG trackfone model LGL41C. I would like to display the screen of this telephone on an LG television, model 32LH550B. How would I do this, if possible? “

 

Curtis, your TV supports something called Miracast, think of it as something like a built in Chromecast, roughly, though it’s not exactly the same.

If your LG phone has something it calls “SmartShare” that’s what they call Miracast support on their devices.

That SmartShare, if available may let you either mirror the whole screen or mirror just videos. If your phone doesn’t support SmartShare, it is possible to sideload an app called MirrorEnabler that will turn it on for you, but it may or may not work well on your phone, and it does require a rooted device.
