Please enable the CAST feature through Software Update. When can we expect it?

I believe this has been answered in the past and I don't believe this will be changed. Casting with only work using Chromecast.

Oooh well. Then you suck if you cannot pass that request to Google. Staying true to stock Android, my foot. You just eat up whatever Google serves you up, do you? Do you!? Can't you step forward to buy that policy or something sh**.

Very cheap business strategy from lenovo /Motorola side. People's are buying Samsung, mi mobiles because they are giving more options like wireless display and so we can connect our mobile to tv using any cheap cast connectors,for example any cast, available in India just for Rs 750.But if you want to connect moto z2 play with TV, then you have to buy chromecast for 3000 Rs.

It's just their bussiness strategy to sqeeze more money out of their customers. Nothing else.

Same problem. I just bought a MOto Z2 Play. Checked the MHL capability using MHL Checker but it does not work. So frustanting.

Re: Moto Z2 Play cannot cast (without Chromecast :/)

I think Moto/Lenovo is just too cheap to invest the time/labor to change this simple one line of code that has disabled this time honored function of simple screen casting.  My z2 is about a year old now and I miss this function EVERY time I return from a trip and try to share pictures.  Too bad I'm hooked on the darn chop-chop flashlight that I use almost daily, or I'd be more aggressively switching over to Samsung, who apparently takes the time to fix this malicious limitation that Google/Android has insulted us all with.  Email Google if you really want your screen casting back. (obviously lenovo doesn't care)

Sounds like Xiaomi enabled a setting that google disables in stock android.
