An Overview of Screen Mirroring and Casting
Screen mirroring refers to wirelessly projecting your mobile device’s display in real-time to a smart TV. This allows you to see your mobile device screen on the TV and control the device as you normally would.
Screen casting enables you to send media like videos, music, and photos from your mobile device to play on the TV. You control playback on the TV rather than your device.
Both options allow you to enjoy content from small screens on your big Hisense TV. The main difference is whether you retain control on your device (mirroring) or the TV (casting).
How To Mirror or Cast from Different Devices
The way you mirror or cast from a device depends on its operating system. Here are the steps for Android, iOS/iPadOS, Windows, and Mac:
Android Screen Mirroring
Most Hisense Smart TVs have built-in casting capabilities for Android devices.
To mirror your Android screen:
- Connect your Android device and Hisense TV to the same Wi-Fi network
- Open quick settings and tap the “Cast” button
- Select your Hisense TV from the list
- Allow permissions on your Android device and TV to begin mirroring
From here, you can mirror apps, play games, show presentations, and more from your Android device on the big screen.
