You can Chromecast your Android device's screen.

First, make sure your device meets the following specifications:

  • Casting your Android screen is available on devices running Android 5.0 or higher.

      1. On your Android device, tap Settings.
      2. Scroll down and tap Apps > Google Play Services > Permissions.
      3. Look for "Microphone" and slide the slider On.

  2. Open the Google Home app and go to the Account tab.
  3. Scroll down and look for Mirror device and tap on it.
