Description

Application to mirror the screen and audio of your iPhone or iPad to a Chromecast 1, 2 or Ultra. You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Chromecast.

In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 2 and 4). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.

However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!

How the app works:

1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Chromecast. Don't use multiple VLANs or subnets.

2. Launch the Mirror for Chromecast app. It will start looking for your Chromecast devices on your local network. When a Chromecast is found, please select it.

3. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your Chromecast is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark.

4. Click on Start Mirroring to start mirroring on the Chromecast that is currently selected. After that, you can just go to any other app on your iPhone or iPad and the mirroring just continues to run.

5. To stop mirroring, there are two options. (1) click on the red top bar that you will see on your iPhone or iPad. (2) Go to the Mirror for Chromecast app and click on Stop Mirroring.

Limitations and known issues:
1. Audio
- When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. We advice to use the Puffin Web Browser, Dolphin Web Browser or iCabMobile instead of Safari.
- Sometimes audio from other apps is not playing. In this case, start a screen mirroring session, then open the app you want to mirror. If there is no sound, just close the app you are mirroring and re-open it in the same mirroring session.

2. DRM
Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that.

Quick Support

I downloaded this app so that I could mirror my phone to use my Yoga app on my TV screen. My TV is an older TV with a Chromecast attached to it. This app worked really well to make my phone viewable on my TV. The second time I went to use it however it wasn’t working. The support people were very quick to respond to me and the problem was fixed. I still have to listen to the sound from my phone but overall it worked. There were some issues with it breaking up or lagging but I think that had more to do with my connection. I didn’t mind paying the small fee to have this app.

Hi,
Thanks for your review. Glad that we could help you solve your problem Audio should play on TV when using the app. Are you using the internal speakers of the TV or are you connected to external speakers. If you are connected to external speakers, please make sure that the external speakers are connected to HDMI port with ARC. Thanks!

Only one I can find that works for what I need

Been looking for an app to cast from my iPhone to Chromecast and none of the other ones I tried worked. I use it to mirror a video streaming app and both video and audio quality are great and it’s very stable. The inherent lag can be improved but overall, it’s worth the price you pay for it.

Not good for iPhone

No sound on tv when cast from safari,chrome,firefox. They recommend to use endless browser but I do-not like that browser

Developer Response ,

Hi,
Audio playback issue from Safari / chrome is a known problem from Apple and we are waiting for a fix from them. Thats why, in the meantime, we recommend you to use Endless Browser. Can you tell us what you dont like about Endless Browser? We can see if we can solve your pain points.

Please contact us either via email (support@airbeam.tv), Facebook Messenger or through ‘send diagnostic information’ from the app. We would be glad to hear your feedback and see if we could help fix it. Thanks!
