If you have an Android phone, chances are you will want to share your pictures, videos, or even emails using a projector, TV, or meeting room display in 2023. So if you need to get something that’s on your phone onto a screen, here are three ways to connect your Android phone to a TV or projector.
Nearly every Android device has a USB-C video output. Most projectors still use HDMI as their standard input for video and audio, but a simple adapter such as this one from Monoprice enables you to connect to your projector with a single and simple cable. Once you get the cable connected all you need to do is change the source to start screen mirroring from your Android phone to a projector.
If you have a Chromecast receiver, this is an easy way to connect your Android to your projector.
This is a nice option when you want to show photos or videos on your device, or for occasional and more casual use.
However, if you are looking to share information from your Android phone in a classroom or a meeting room, then you may want to look at a wireless screen mirroring system. These are more expensive than a Chromecast receiver but are a better choice in a work or school environment.
If you are in a room where people regularly share content from an Android phone to a TV or projector, then you should look for a purpose-built wireless presentation system such as BenQ InstaShow.
