Select “Connect” on the tab that opens.
Select “Projecting to this computer” in the next dialog.
The projection adjustment menu appears. I personally recommend setting it up as shown in the screenshot below.
More details about the selected options in order:
– When the broadcast reception mode is active. Always, never, only on secure networks. The latter option excludes public Wi-Fi hotspots without a password.
– The PIN code will be requested every time you connect. You can select “only the first time”, after which the devices will be able to broadcast the screen only once by requesting a pin code.
– Checkmark for the presence of a pin code.
– Allow broadcasts only if the laptop is powered by the network. This option is not available on computers. Convenient to turn on to save battery.
With the computer part sorted out. We proceed to telephone. You need to find the menu for connecting to the wireless display. In different versions of android and different assemblies, it may be called differently. Options: WiDi, Wi-Fi Display, Play to, Translate, or as in the screenshot below – Smart View. An icon is usually something that looks like a TV and a Wi-Fi icon or arrow. Usually hides in the action menu, which opens with a two-finger swipe down from the top of the screen. However, it happens that it hides in the phone settings. Or as a separate menu item, or as an option in the Wi-Fi settings.
When selected, it will start scanning the network for wireless screens. In this case, the smartphone should find the laptop / computer, as shown below:
We select the desired device. A dialog will open to enter the pin code. On smart it will look something like this:
At the same time, a notification should appear on the computer screen that “A phone with such and such a name wants to start projecting.”
We accept the request from the computer. A window with a pin code will open in full screen.
We enter the pin code on the phone, wait a few seconds and see a copy of the smartphone screen on the computer.
Unfortunately, this method is only suitable for broadcasting video or photos. Well, or for showing presentations. The point is that the picture is delayed by 0.5 seconds. The audio track, when broadcasting a video, shifts slightly in time. As a result, the video plays correctly. But the games can no longer be played. In the same shooters / races, for which the smartphone can be used as a controller, the delay of half a second is very critical.
