Rahul, a cab driver, was determined to buy a smart-TV before the festive occasion of Diwali. After all, he promised his children that he would purchase a TV that could be connected with their mobile phones. With an easy EMI option on the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store, Rahul could comfortably buy an MI Smart TV that his elder brother suggested owing to its reliability, new tech, and a reasonable price. Although he was able to fulfil his promise of buying the smart tv, he was unsure of how to mirror his mobile onto the newly purchased MI Tv. If like Rahul, you too are unsure about using this feature, read along to understand how to use screen mirroring on Mi TV.
First things first
Screen mirroring allows you to watch any content from your mobile device or laptop onto your TV screen. This becomes an effective way of viewing your phone content – videos, photos, files – on the big screen. To be able to screen mirror wirelessly, your TV should support a wifi connection. This feature is available the Smart MI TV. You can now purchase the same with zero down payment and complement it with a no-cost EMI and other attractive offers, on Bajaj Finserv EMI Store. For a seamless connection between your television and a hand-held device, a stable and fast wifi connection is indispensable.
You’ll find that Mi TV screen cast is actually a piece of cake. After switching on your TV, make sure the option “Stream from your device to your TV” is always turned on. This can be done by selecting ‘Settings’ from the homepage of your Smart MI Television and choosing the ‘Security’ option. Within the Security tab, go to ‘Micast Settings’ and turn the stream option on.
