An easy way to show your photos and videos, your video calls or your video games on TV.
One of the advantages of televisions powered by Android TV, such as those that make up the C71 and C81 series of the Chinese company TCL, is that they have the Google Play Store from which it is possible to download a wide variety of applications, and thus make better use of its features. Among them is AirScreen.
What is AirScreen?
AirScreen is an free application that works as a Chromecast, Miracast and Airplay receiver, the latter being the wireless transmission protocol used exclusively by iOS devices.
This opens the possibility of transmitting to the screen where AirScreen is running any activity that is carried out on the iPhone, not only to view photos, videos or presentations, but also for video calls.
We show you the steps you must follow to see your iPhone screen on a TCL television with Android TV.
How to mirror the iPhone to TCL Smart TV
To get started, connect your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network that your TV is on. Then, go to the Google Play Store on your TV and download and install the AirScreen app.
Launch AirScreen and click Confirm. A QR code will appear on your TV screen.
Open your iPhone camera and read the QR code. Next, click the Safari link that appears and click Entire Screen.
Open the iPhone Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen. Tap on Screen mirroring and choose your TCL Smart TV.
From now on, the iPhone screen will be mirrored on the TV.
When you want to stop streaming, all you have to do is reopen the Control Center and tap the Stop Screen Mirroring button.
