Screen mirroring is a great way to display your Android device’s content on a larger screen. If you own a Vizio TV, you can easily connect your Android device to it and cast your screen. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of screen mirroring your Android device to Vizio TV.
Before you start, make sure you have the following:
- A Vizio TV with built-in Chromecast support or a Chromecast device plugged into your TV
- An Android device running Android 4.4.2 or later
- A stable Wi-Fi connection
Step 1: Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Vizio TV
Make sure your Android device and Vizio TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is important for screen mirroring to work properly.
Step 2: Enable screen mirroring on your Vizio TV
If your Vizio TV has built-in Chromecast support, screen mirroring is enabled by default. If you’re using a Chromecast device, you need to enable screen mirroring by going to the Settings menu and selecting “Screen mirroring”.
Step 3: Enable screen mirroring on your Android device
On your Android device, go to Settings and select “Connected devices”. Then, select “Cast” or “Screen mirroring” and choose your Vizio TV from the list of available devices.
Step 4: Cast your screen
Once you’ve connected your Android device to your Vizio TV, you can start casting your screen. Simply open any app or content that you want to display on your TV and tap the Cast icon. Your screen will be mirrored on your TV in real-time.
Step 5: Adjust the settings
You can adjust the settings of your screen mirroring session by tapping the Cast icon and selecting “Settings”. From here, you can change the resolution, enable or disable audio, and more.
Step 6: Stop casting
To stop casting your screen, simply tap the Cast icon on your Android device and select “Stop casting”. Alternatively, you can turn off your TV or disconnect your Android device from your Wi-Fi network.
