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 television. But if we turn off the screen of the mobile, we will also stop watching it on the television.
It is compatible with Android 4.2 or later phones natively (it is not an app that we can download). To find out if your mobile can use Miracast, go to Settings> Display, and look for a screen duplication option or wireless screen
Our television must also support it. As data, the smart televisions of Sony, LG and Samsung began to support this technology from 2013, although some models of the end of 2012 were already compatible. On the official Miracast website you can check all compatible devices.
If our receiver equipment is not compatible, there are adapters that connect to the HDMI or USB ports of the TV. Microsoft, for example, launched the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, which allows Miracast to be used on any monitor or television. Belking also has another adapter.
