Moto Z Play Miracast

Please enable the miracast feature on Moto Z Play in next update. Many of us want to connect it to smart tvs but it's limited to chromecast only. This is a very basic feature which is expected on almost all mid range devices. Please enable it as I don't want to root my phone.

Re: Moto Z Play Miracast

Thanks for your kind reply and consideration. Still I want to say that it's the problem of many not only mine. You can see on internet how users are looking for and complaining about this feature. I would request you to convince your team for the same. 

 

Thanks again in advance. 

Regards

Rahul Vishwakarma

I agree, it is rather appalling that they would limit such a useful technology as casting to only specific devices given the hardware is fully capable. Get it together, please.

Re: Moto Z Play Miracast

I should have read the Z Play phone specifications more closely. I am extremely disappointed to find out that my new Z Play phone does not allow Miracast. That would have been a deal breaker. I don't own a Chromecast and don't want one. Extremely disappointed, Motorola!

Google removed Miracast from stock android many versions ago. And since Motorola builds on stock android with very little modifications, most of their phones have not had Miracast in many years.

Android supported Miracast, in Android 4.2 (KitKat) and Android 5 (Lollipop). However, Google dropped native Miracast support in Android 6 (Marshmallow) and later. If you want to mirror the display from a newer Android phone or tablet, you’ll need to do so via Chromecast.

Re: Moto Z Play Miracast

Why can't Lenovo deliver the Miracast service?

Huawi P Smart also with Android 8 has no problem in delivering it.

Re: Moto Z Play Miracast

Because Moto phones run stock Android, and Miracast is not part of stock Android.  Huawei phones do not use stock Android, they have their own custom skin on top of Android.
