The ability to connect our TVs to our phones has made content consumption much easier. While Wi-Fi connections make it easier to mirror smartphones on Smart TVs, there are other ways to watch your phone movies if you don't have access to the internet. As a result, a lack of connection or a sluggish Internet connection should never be an excuse for missing your favorite show.
So, without Wi-Fi, how do you mirror a phone to a TV? There are several ways to mirror your smartphone to a TV, depending on the resources available. To begin, you can use converters to connect your TV to your smartphone via an HDMI cable. Peer-to-peer wireless connections are also a great substitute for Wi-Fi. If you want to watch a movie from a popular site like Netflix, though, you'll need Chromecast or other dongles. Without Wi-Fi, there are a few options for mirroring your phone to the TV.
Use one of the following methods to connect your phone to your smart TV without using Wi-Fi:
An HDMI cable is the greatest cable option for connecting your Smart TV to your phone. You'll need a converter because phones don't have HDMI connectors.
Without Wi-Fi, any USB-C to HDMI converter can effortlessly cast an Android or iOS screen to a TV. We recommend the Uni Thunderbolt or Anker USB-C to HDMI converters for the best results.
You may acquire the Lightning Digital AV Adapter from any store if you have an iPhone or iPad with a Lightning port. The adapter functions exactly like a USB-C to HDMI converter.
Check for additional possibilities if the HDMI and USB-C connections do not deliver the audio and visual signals. iPhone users are in the same boat. Fortunately, there's a slim probability that this connection option will fail.
Screen mirroring has been made easier with Wi-Fi Direct. You can stream all media files from your files without polishing because the connection works similarly to Bluetooth.
Your phone and TV, on the other hand, must have Wi-Fi Direct as part of their network connections.
To enable the network on your TV:
Go to your TV’s Menu
Scroll down to network and then select Wi-Fi Direct
Enable the Wi-Fi Direct
To connect the phone and TV using this peer-to-peer connection:
Go to your phone’s settings
Select Network & Internet
Tap the Wi-Fi option (or toggle it to the On position)
Go to Wi-Fi preferences (For Samsung smartphone users, select the three dots at the top right section of your screen)
Scroll down to the Advanced option
Select the Wi-Fi Direct
Search your TV’s protocol
Once you see it, tap connect
The steps may differ slightly depending on the television brand. Fortunately, Wi-Fi Direct is listed on the network list independent of the TV brand.
If your TV does not have this feature, you can use Miracast to mirror it with your phone, which works similarly to this connection.
If you get stuck while utilizing Wi-Fi Direct, the Miracast App is a great solution. Your TV must have Bluetooth in order for it to work. However, you must first install the program on your smartphone.
The software may be downloaded from Google Play and Apple App Stores. After you've downloaded the app to your phone, go to your TV's settings and turn it on.
To get Miracast on Smart TV:
Go to your TV’s settings
Scroll down to Display
Change the setting to ON
Search for Miracast devices
Connect the phone with the app
It's worth noting that the app isn't available for free on the App Store. If you have an Android device, though, it is free.
Some big streaming providers, such as Netflix, limit images when streaming from your phone to a TV without Wi-Fi in certain circumstances. Only in some cases will you hear the sound.
If you're having trouble with this, your best bet is to buy a Google Chromecast or a similar device. If you want to mirror your phone on TV to share photos and videos you've downloaded, the first three options will suffice.
While mirroring your phone to a TV via a shared Wi-Fi network is quick and easy, you can also connect the two remotely.
The three best options include connecting the TV to a phone through HDMI cable (via a converter), WiFi Direct, and Miracast App.
The three options may not work if you're watching from Netflix or another site. Purchase a streaming dongle in this situation.
