5 best screen mirroring apps for Android

Screen mirroring isn’t the most popular thing people do with their devices. However, there are plenty of niche use cases for such a technology. Some people like it for streaming. Others use it for technical support. Whatever the reason, we hope we can help you achieve it. Here are the best screen mirroring apps for Android and other ways too!

Chrome Remote Desktop

 Chrome Remote Desktop is one of the more popular screen mirroring apps. It doesn’t let you mirror your phone screen on a computer. In fact, it does exactly the opposite. The app lets you look at your computer desktop on your mobile device. It works best with tablets. However, it’s perfectly usable on a phone. It should also work on any computer with Google Chrome browser support. The app is also free with no in-app purchases.

Google Home

 Google Home is the app for Google Home, Chromecast, and other Google devices. You can directly cast your screen from your device to your TV with this app and a Chromecast. It actually works impressively well. However, most of the use cases, like streaming video, are better done on the Chromecast rather than screen mirroring. Still, if you need your phone screen on a TV, this is a great way to do it. You have to purchase a Chromecast. However, the app is free.

Microsoft Remote Desktop

Microsoft Remote Desktop is a lot like Chrome Remote Desktop. In fact, it does basically the same thing. It shows you your desktop computer. The app supports Windows Professional and Server editions. In addition, it works well for video and sound streaming should the need occur. It’s completely free with no in-app purchases or advertisements. Those running Windows should probably use this one. Otherwise, default to Chrome Remote Desktop for other operating systems.


TeamViewer is one of the most popular screen mirroring apps. This one is mainly for diagnostic purposes. You can look at desktops or other mobile devices if needed. It supports HD video and sound transmission, 256-bit AES encryption, and file transfers from both devices. It also supports Mac, Windows, and Linux natively. That’s great news. The app is free to use for individual use. Those running businesses have various payment options.

Native smartphone and smart TV mirroring

 Many smart TVs and smartphones can screen mirror things natively. For instance, many Android devices can cast the screen to virtually anything that has Miracast or Chromecast support. As long as your smart TV or smart dongle or whatever can do it, you can screen mirror without downloading an extra app. It’s fastest, most efficient way to do screen mirroring as long as you have the proper equipment already in your home or area. It’s worth looking into!
