How to Stream Your Android Screen on PC (Ultimate Guide)
Windows, Mac or Linux, love it or hate it, it has several features enabled that allows the computer to communicate easily with your Android device. One of these features allows you to easily cast your screen from your phone to your computer. If you are running Android 4.4.2 or above, you already have screencasting potential.
Some Android phones have this feature built right into the quick actions section. If you don’t have a upload option there like I did, you can luckily download an app from the Google Play Store which works the same way. Either way, streaming Android screen to Windows, Mac, and Linux is quick and painless.
Streaming without Wires on Windows 10
There is more than one way to stream Android screen on Windows 10, but the first option is free and doesn’t require any extra wires. This takes advantage of the new Connect app in Windows 10’s Anniversary Edition.
Note: If your version of Windows is not up-to-date, it won’t work as intended.
If you haven’t done it yourself, or Windows hasn’t done it automatically for you; update your computer.
I mentioned this before, but if you haven’t updated your operating system, you won’t have a working Connect app, which means this option won’t work. If you don’t want to update Windows, you’d better skip this option and try another one.
If you don’t know how to update your computer to Windows 10, try:
- Pressing the Start menu
- In the search bar, search for “Windows update.”
