    • Look for and tap on “Smart View” or “Screen Mirroring.”
    • Select your TV from the available devices to start screen mirroring.
  3. Using Third-Party Apps: There are apps available on the Google Play Store, like “AllCast,” that allow you to cast content from your Android device to a compatible TV.

Screen Mirroring to a Computer:

  1. Using USB Cable (Android to PC):
    • Connect your Android device to your computer using a USB cable.
    • On your Android device, go to “Settings” > “Connected devices” > “USB.”
