Project your Pixel phone's screen

If you have a Chromecast or other device that casts, you can mirror your Pixel phone's screen and audio on a TV. For a faster connection when you play games or compete in esports, you can connect your Pixel phone to your monitor or TV with a wired dock.

Important: Some of these steps work only on Android 8.0 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Cast your screen

  1. Open your phone's Settings app.
  2. Tap Connected devices And then Connection preferences And then Cast.
  3. On the list, tap the device where you want to show your screen.

Tip: You can add Cast to Quick Settings. Learn about Quick Settings.

Stop casting your screen

  1. Swipe down from the top of your phone's screen.
  2. On the Cast notification, tap Disconnect.

Project with a wired dock

For a faster connection when you play games or compete in esports, use a wired connection. Certain wired docking stations are compatible with Pixel phones. On a compatible dock with an ethernet port, you can also connect to LAN.

To set up and project on your Pixel phone, follow the steps that came with your compatible dock. For example:
  1. On your phone, from the Play Store, install the DisplayLink Presenter app.
    Tip: When you connect your phone to the docking station, the app doesn’t need to be open.
  2. With a USB-C cable, connect your Pixel phone to your compatible dock.
  3. With an HDMI cable, connect your compatible dock to your monitor or TV.
  4. Plug in your compatible dock's power cable.

Tip: Pixel 3 and later Pixel phones work with the MediaGear USB-C Hub Docking Station (item 853265008171). Other docking stations can also work.
