Cast Screen Not Working On Moto G5 Plus

2017-05-23, 3:49 AM

Cast Screen is not working on my Moto G5 Plus.

I have my t.v Sony Bravia with cast screen support and wifi also. I tried several times to connect it but it will not show any device and it always shows no nearby device found as below in attached "Image" and also 3 dots for option is not showing.

I connect many other brand phones to my t.v without any problem .

So it is my request to Motorola Team to solve this issue in its next update.

Solved! See the solution

As with most other Motorola phones and other stock android variants (pixel and nexus) , only Google Chromecast is supported.

There are casting apps in the play store, but i am not sure how well they work. 

 

Google has only made support for chromecast partmof stock android. Moto phones have been like this for many generations.

I have a feeling cast option is deliberately disabled by Motorola so that users can also buy Chromecast, since it only works with Chromecast.

 

This is absurd. I have a Samsung home theater system and Bravia tv and I cannot use this important feature which all my previous phones used to support. It should be platform independent and you cannot force sell your products.

 

I was very excited about this phone as this was my first Motorola phone and now I am pretty sure that it's my last.

Motorola should include miracast feature in next update as Lenovo brand phones are having this feature.

You dont have to fallow what your ancestor did. It's all about what you are doing for the present. Apple i phone are selling there fones at whatever price they want and miracurously geting sold out every model. Because they keep delivering new things & new updates. In other side they are also making older devices slow by giving new updates may be to push people to buy new models. By your explanation, I doubt that whether lenevo team is capable of solving the issues of costomers. Instead you are marketing google device for casting purpose which can be solved by just giving a simple update. From your reply I am very unconvinced and thinking about whether I made mistake by buying Moto G5 Plus. Further I wont recommend any moto divices to anyone if this response I am getting from the parent company.

This is a user to user forum - the answers you get are often from volunteers (I am one), but that doesn't change the fact that Google removed casting option in stock android. Motorola phones are sold as stock android - not a lot of extras added.
