Miracast is a wireless display standard included in Windows 8.1, Android 4.2, and newer versions of these operating systems. With a Miracast receiver plugged into a TV or another display nearby, casting your screen should be easy.
To use screen mirroring, both devices have to meet a few minimum requirements. The phone or tablet you want to cast from must support screen mirroring and be able to send out data. The TV or projector you want to cast to must support screen mirroring and be able to capture and play that data.
To find out if your phone or tablet supports mirroring, refer to the documentation or perform an internet search. Note that you might also have to enable the Miracast or Screen Mirroring feature in Settings, so keep an eye out for that too.
