How to Cast to LG TV from Android
Do you want to enjoy your favorite videos, movies, or photos from your Android device on a bigger screen? With LG Smart TVs, you can easily cast your Android screen to the TV and immerse yourself in a more cinematic experience. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of casting from your Android device to an LG TV.
To successfully cast your Android screen to an LG TV, make sure you have the following:
- An LG Smart TV with built-in casting capabilities or a compatible casting device connected to your TV.
- An Android device running on Android 4.4 or higher.
- A stable Wi-Fi network connection for both your Android device and LG TV.
Step 1: Connect Your Android Device and LG TV to the Same Wi-Fi Network
Before you begin casting, ensure that both your Android device and LG TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is necessary for establishing a connection between the two devices.
Step 2: Enable Screen Sharing on Your LG TV
To enable screen sharing on your LG TV, follow these steps:
- Using your remote control, navigate to the Home screen of your LG Smart TV.
- Select “Settings” using the arrow keys on your remote control.
- Navigate to “Network” and press “OK.”
- Select “Screen Share” and choose “ON.” If it is already enabled, skip this step.
Step 3: Enable Screen Mirroring on Your Android Device
To enable screen mirroring on your Android device, follow these steps:
- Unlock your Android device and swipe down from the top of the screen to access the Quick Settings menu.
- Look for and tap on the “Cast” or “Screen Mirroring” icon. The name may vary depending on your Android device.
- Your Android device will scan for available devices. Select your LG TV from the list of available devices.
Step 4: Start Casting
Once you have connected your Android device to your LG TV, you can start casting by following these steps:
- Open the app or content you want to cast on your Android device.
- Tap on the “Cast” icon within the app or content player. This icon is usually represented by a rectangular screen with a Wi-Fi symbol in the corner.
- Select your LG TV from the list of available devices.
Note: Some apps may have a different method to initiate casting. Look for options like “Play on TV,” “Send to TV,” or “Cast” within the app’s settings or playback controls.
- Make sure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network: If your Android device and LG TV are not connected to the same network, they won’t be able to communicate with each other. Double-check your Wi-Fi settings and reconnect if necessary.
- Restart both devices: Sometimes, technical glitches can hinder casting functionality.
Try restarting both your Android device and LG TV, and then attempt the casting process again.
- Update your software: Ensure that both your Android device and LG TV have the latest software updates installed. Outdated software can cause compatibility issues and hinder casting.
- Check for app compatibility: While most popular streaming apps support casting, some lesser-known or older apps may not have this feature. Make sure the app you want to cast from is compatible with casting functionality.
By following these steps, you can easily cast your Android device’s screen to an LG TV and enjoy a larger display for all your favorite content. Whether it’s watching movies, streaming videos, or sharing photos with friends and family, casting to your LG TV enhances the overall viewing experience.
