Huawei screen mirroring
Huawei P10 and P10 Plus have been catching quite a nice share of the smartphone market since their release. Reviews are mainly positive and people are acquiring the model in higher and higher numbers. Given its specs, Huawei P10 is highly capable of streaming high definition media. So how do you connect your Huawei P10 or P10 plus to a TV? Let’s find out!
- Most common solution: Chromecast
Probably the most efficient and clean way to pair your Huawei P10 and a TV is via Chromecast. Chromecast is basically a mid-gadget which mediates data streaming between a TV and your Android smartphone. Its HDMI dongle fits inside the input of the TV while Chromecast connects to your phone through a common wireless network.
Google Home app is required to properly setup Chromecast. However, the process is rather easy and then you can cast any media and even mirror your smartphone’s screen to the TV. Chromecast will not just work with smartphones, but also any computer running Google Chrome.
- Miracast display mirroring
If for some reason you’re not fond of Chromecast, there’s another option available for you. Miracast is the go-to option for screen mirroring and Huawei P10 / P10 Plus is fully compatible with. At the other end of the “wire” you need to have a Miracast compatible TV or a Miracast dongle. If your TV is rather new, chances are it supports Miracast by default. However, don’t worry if your TV doesn’t support Miracast.
A dongle rates around $25 and can be bought online from most retailers. This will allow you to stream your smartphone’s screen to any TV you connect the dongle to.
- Wired options: USB-C to HDMI adapter
If you don’t mind a cable being constantly connected to your Huawei P10, then an USB-C to HDMI adapter may be the best choice for you. It’s plug and play; connect the USB-C end to your smartphone and the HDMI jack to your TV and your smartphone’s screen should be instantly mirrored to the bigger display on the wall.
Be aware though! Some Huawei P10 users reported compatibility issues when trying to mirror the screen using a USB-C to HDMI adapter. It would be best to test before you buy in order to make sure your device works properly with the adapter.
