If you download movies or series, if you want to watch YouTube videos on the big screen or if you just want to play all sizes, the best way to do this is by connecting your Android phone or tablet to television. There are two ways to do this, using WiFi or with the help of a HDMI cable.

Whatever method you choose, it is a fairly simple process that will not take too long.

Two methods to connect your Android to the TV

Using a HDMI Cable

This is the simplest method, since you only need an HDMI cable. It will depend on the type of mobile device, some already bring the micro HDMI port, but in other cases it will be necessary to use an MHL microUSB to HDMI converter, such as the above image, which has cost about 8 euros.

All you have to connect the cable to your Android and the TV, and look for the HDMI source with the TV remote. Once done, you will have the screen of your smartphone or tablet on your TV and you can see games, apps, videos and your favorite content on the big screen.

by WiFi

To connect your smartphone to the TV wirelessly, two things are necessary. First, your TV must have WiFi option, something we find virtually any SmartTV today. On the other hand your phone must also have multi-function display. If you are sure that accounts with both options, just follow these steps:

1. Through the source of your TV, find the wireless display option.

2. Start multi-screen option on your smartphone. Once inside, your phone will start searching for other devices that are connected to the WiFi network through this function. Here you must select your TV.

3. Once the two devices are recognized, the screen of your smartphone appear on the TV.

There are also some applications where you need not follow these steps because they can connect to the TV automatically. This occurs with numerous video and image applications, such as YouTube or your phone gallery.

In these applications you will find an icon with two screens or a screen and connecting a WiFi signal. Clicking on this button, you'll find all the devices connected to your network. You have to choose your TV and the app in question will appear on the screen.

Do you think it can be useful to connect your smartphone or tablet to the TV? Do you know any other way to get it? Leave us a comment and tell us your opinion, at the foot of this article.

I dont think the micro usb to hdmi method will work since the lg Stylo 2 is not an mhl enabled device. I could be wrong but I am somewhat sure that a person with that phone would need to use slimport.

Connect via Miracast

Miracast is similar to the HDMI cable of the first section, but without cables. That is, it is a way to see the screen of our mobile on the TV. But if we turn off the screen of the mobile, we will also stop watching it on the TV.

It is natively compatible with Android 4.2 or later phones (not an app that we can download). To find out if your phone can use Miracast, go to Settings> Display, and look for a screen duplication option or wireless screen

Our television must also support it. As a matter of fact, smart TVs from Sony, LG and Samsung started to support this technology from 2013, although some models from late 2012 were already compatible. In the official Miracast page you can consult all compatible devices.

If our receiving equipment is not compatible, there are adapters that connect to the HDMI or USB ports on the TV. Microsoft, for example, has long launched the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, which lets you use Miracast on any monitor or TV. Belking also has another adapter.
