    • Nikhil says:

      Make sure that your ile mobdevices do not get connected to any available Wi-Fi networks.

  4. Paulyshmawly says:

    Doesn’t work. I get to successfully connect both devices but when I attempt to go into screen mirroring mode, the wifi direct connection gets cut off. Lame

  5. Mukesh says:

    Sir I purchased Moto e4 plus but there is no cast option in Moto e4 plus to connect my phone to smart TV..

  6. ernest says:

    does not work i get a connection it s mmainained but it does not work

  7. Chad says:

    I tried this with my Samsung Smart Tv and Moto Z2 Force. It does not work. When I go to the cast option, is says “No devices found.” I have read on other threads that lame-ass Motorola removed the option to cast unless you buy Chromecast. I will never buy another Moto anything.

  8. Anthony says:

    Hey dude, I appreciate the help but I still can’t see it in the Cast section of my phone as an option. I got all the to that point and nada, any advice?

  9. Steve says:


    Quick back story. I have a brand new Moto Z2 Play (2017) (came with 7.1.1 and is “up-to-date”) unlocked, from My previous device was a Moto X Pure (2015), and it did screen mirroring easily on my samsung UN55JU6500. Eventually it was time to get a new phone and I assumed this feature would be included on my new 2017 moto Z2 Play device. But I think that’s not the case.

    After struggling with it for a while I looked it up and found several posts saying the new Moto will only work with Chromecast. I never wanted big brother data mining what I watch, so I’ve steered clear of Chromecast, besides its just another thing to buy/configure/troubleshoot, etc. So I called Motorola.

    Motorola rep said it will indeed only work with Chrome case but they said its Android/Google’s fault because Android now doesn’t have that feature.

    Then I found your post and gave it a try. I got all the way up thru step 11, but nothing every shows up under Cast (step 12). There is no 3 dot icon there either. So no Holla for me yet. Any other ideas??


  10. Kals212 says:

    Hi, I brought new Moto M and i tried this option. Till step 11th it is fine, but in 12th step, my Moto M is displaying as “No Devices found”. Is there any other option, pls help

    • Nikhil says:

      Moto should have detected the TV. Maybe clearing the cache would help you 🙂

  11. Franklin says:

    Before writing anything please do a research on smartphones that support cast. I got moto c plus it does not support any cast and there is nothing written as cast or mirror in display

    • Nikhil says:

      My work was to show how to connect Moto with Smart TV. There is a disclaimer which shows check your settings for knowing your device compatibility. Coming to the list it was just a random sample, I can’t check each and every single device which supports Cast. My post was focused on how you can mirror it with TV.

    • Lisa says:

      I also have Moto c does support. But now the problem is..I can’t get volume n can’t connect to net. It’s like playing offline I can do. Still useless for me..

      May it is a sort of software issue. Though clear the cache from recovery mode and then try.

    • Nikhil says:

      First, connect the TV with Wi-Fi direct and then mirror according to the steps given above.

  19. Nem0 says:

    Thank you for the tutorial. Under google play i saw several miracast apps developped by different teams. Can you update the tutorial to say which one you use ? Maybe you can also leave a link to the “official” webpage.
    Thank you

  20. Ray says:

    All steps work UNTIL trying to connect the phone to the Samsung Smart TV, then it asks for a password. None of the Samsung ‘standard’ passwords work. A call to Samsung support stated that it is NOT possible to mirror from a phone.

    Also, the SmartView application only shows Pictures, Videos and music. It does NOT (or at least the just downloaded version of SmartView) provide for Mirror-ing.

    What next?

  21. Nath says:

    Hi, Have you tried Moto g5splus screen mirroring with Samsung k5300 tv? I can’t.

  22. Ajaya says:

    Hi bro, I tried connecting Moto G5 to Samsung smart tv following your steps. I could see both TV and Moto G5 showing connected ( to each other). However as I tried to cast, the phone says no device found. Please help with the solution.

  23. HARANATH says:

    I followed steps given above to connect my Moto M to TV using amazon firestick. But could not succeed. From google search, I understood that root file to be updated to make screen cast to work in MOTO M. But I could not find steps to be followed for MOTO M device. Please help me in getting solution for my problem of connecting MOTO M to TV through firestick.

  24. savneet says:

    worked for me. mine is moto g5 plus.
    for those who couldn’t do it, install smart view app from play store first. once you are done, follow the above procedure until step no. 11, then open smart view app, you will see your tv name there.
    ps. your screen will not be mirrored, but you’ll be able to cast your mobile media.

  28. Ann says:

    Most people screen mirror from their phone because it don’t have Wi-Fi or Internet

  29. Meghan hall says:

    I don’t have WiFi direct because I’m using a fire stick.. how can I get around this??

  30. Nilesh Kumar Navgrahe says:

    I read all the comments and found that single person was not able to connect. Everyone saying that they are not able to connect. I am also not able to connect. Then questions is how Nikhil is able to do this? It seems he is making fool to others with fake screenshot. Thechnolgy is same device are same then what magic he is doing ? He is giving silly reasons like clear cache etc…this is absolutely ridiculous and time wasting…do not give attention to these post.
