Project your Android device’s screen

If you have a device that can cast, like Chromecast or Nexus Player, you can project your phone or tablet's screen and audio to a TV. This can be a great way to share your photos or watch a video on a big screen. Here's how:

  1. Swipe down the notification shade with two fingers from the top of any screen.
  2. Touch Cast Cast.
  3. You'll see a list of Chromecast devices on your Wi-Fi network. Touch the device you want to cast your screen to.
  4. To stop showing your screen, open the notification shade again, touch Cast Screen > Disconnect.

Note: To use Chromecast, you need a device with Android 4.4.2 or higher. See the full Chromecast system requirements.
