Community Member

Hi All


When I try to mirror my screen to chromecast from samsung a13 it says this device is not optimized for mirroring. Is there anything O can do or is the phone not suitable


Many thanks

Hi CyclingSmurfy,


Thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry for the late response. Please try the steps listed below:


  1. Make sure your mobile phone is running on Android 8.0 or later (for Google Home app controls)
  2. Make sure your Android device has enough available power, turn off its low power mode or battery saver.
  3. Make sure the microphone permission in the Google Play Services app is turned on.
  4. Ensure your Android device and Chromecast device is within 15 feet (4 meters) of each other.
  5. Try to use a different mobile phone to isolate the issue. Note: Some Android devices may not have the necessary power to provide an optimized Cast experience. 

For additional information on how to improve your Android screen casting experience, check out this support website article
