How To Connect An Android Device To TV

Mirroring information from a phone or tablet is rarely the best way to get that content on a larger screen because modern TVs allow an ever-growing variety of on-demand- and streaming apps.

However, there are other options that will be preferred if you’re away from home and not signed in to your own programs, using an outdated TV without support for the newest apps, or the information you wish to broadcast is your own or included in a phone-focused app like TikTok.

You have the option of wirelessly or physically connecting your Android tablet or phone to a TV. Below, we’ll list your selections.

Connect Android to TV wirelessly

Because not all phones and tablets support HDMI connections, and cables strewn across the living room can be messy, a wireless solution may be preferable.

Casting content from your phone or tablet to your TV is actually really straightforward, but what confuses things is the huge number of terms that are used in conjunction with it, from Miracast and Wireless Display to screen mirroring, Smart Share and everything in between. There’s also AirPlay, but this is used only for Apple devices.

Our advice is not to worry too much about these terms: you are merely looking for an option in your phone or tablet Settings that alludes to casting or screen mirroring, which may be found under Connected Devices or Display Settings, depending on your device.

Casting usually allows you to stream the content from a specific app to your TV – ideal for watching video on the big screen – without sharing everything else from your phone. Screen mirroring shares everything from your phone screen, so only use it if you’re comfortable with everyone in the room seeing your notifications.

Most smart TVs will support screen mirroring from Android. If you don’t have a smart TV, relatively cheap wireless display devices such as Chromecast and Roku can facilitate a wireless connection between your phone or tablet and TV, and have many other handy uses, too. Check that the screen mirroring option is enabled in the settings of whichever device you are using.

Now go back to your phone or tablet, and ensure it is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your TV. Find the casting option and select your TV (or your Chromecast/Roku/other wireless HDMI device) to begin mirroring the screen. You may be asked to enter a code displayed on the TV to confirm you are connecting to the correct device.

You will want to put your phone or tablet in landscape mode, ensure the content you want to view is open in full-screen mode, and check the volume is not turned down or muted. You may also want to consider setting Do Not Disturb options to prevent incoming notifications interrupting playback, especially if they are likely to be private.

If the app in which you’re viewing the content has a Cast icon at the top of it, or your phone or tablet has a Cast option in the quick access settings in Android’s pull-down notification bar, this process is even simpler: tap Cast and select your TV or smart device to begin screen mirroring.

Do note that some apps, such as those from Sky, will not allow you to cast their content to a larger display. There is no way to get around this without paying for a package that allows you to watch that content on TV rather than mobile.

Connect Android to TV with HDMI

If you don’t want to fiddle around with settings, the simplest solution for connecting your Android phone or tablet to a TV is using an HDMI cable – provided that your device supports streaming over HDMI. You connect one end to the port on the back of your TV, and one end to the charging port on your phone, then change the Source on the TV to view the HDMI input.

You’ll notice that a standard HDMI cable won’t fit into your phone, however. If your phone or tablet has a USB-C port, this is super-easy to get around, and you can buy an HDMI cable that has a USB-C connection at one end. We like this
UNI cable from Amazon.

If your phone or tablet has an older Micro-USB connection then you similarly need a Micro-USB to HDMI cable, but it must be one that includes MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) tech like this StarTech lead. Note that not all Android phones and tablets support MHL, so try to find out if your model does before you put any money down.

SlimPort is another term you might hear mentioned. It is a similar but slightly different technology to MHL, and it can output to HDMI, VGA, DVI or DisplayPort, while MHL is limited to HDMI. In our experience, many people use these terms interchangeably, but in essence they are simply talking about an adaptor or cable that can convert the feed from USB to HDMI.

Some tablets might additionally feature Micro-HDMI or Mini-HDMI connections, which will simplify things. With these you can use a Micro-HDMI or Mini-HDMI to HDMI cable, but you must check the spec of your device to ensure you are buying the correct cable (these connections are different sizes). Here are examples of
Micro-HDMI and Mini-HDMI cables available at Amazon.

If you have no spare HDMI ports on the back of your TV, you may also need to purchase an
HDMI switch to add more, freeing up a port to connect your phone or tablet.

Four New WhatsApp Features

Four New WhatsApp Features

Four new features are being introduced by WhatsApp for users to improve and streamline their experience. WaBetaInfo lists the new features as being able to block unknown calls, community access points, mention groups within community announcement groups, and message editing.

Advertisement

The instant messaging app is allowing users to have more control over the calls they receive by silencing unknown callers. Users can enable this feature by going to the privacy option in settings and then clicking on “Calls.

This feature would allow people to limit spam calls, providing them with more privacy and security.

This feature allows the community admins to mention groups within the community announcement group. This would help them highlight the groups when sending a message to community members.

Community entry point

Users will be able to open community groups directly within the community announcement group with this new button placed within the header

In addition, the creator of the community can quickly create a group from the menu that appears by tapping that button,” said the app-tracking website.

Editing messages
Another amazing update on WhatsApp is that some users can edit text messages within 15 minutes of sending them.

This limit has been set to maintain the integrity of the conversation so that messages cannot be modified in the long term, as the message editing feature is only intended to correct any typing errors,” said WaBetaInfo.

Users have the ability to edit messages an unlimited number of times, but they cannot edit a message sent from a different device.
