Moto Z Insta-share projector as Second Screen

2017-11-12, 17:18 PM

Can I put in a request that the next software update allow the phone/projector to be recognized by a laptop as a projector and hence can be used as a second screen?

We are re-watching Game of Thrones with friends in preparation for Season 8, and it would be handy to be able to play the show on our TV (linked to a laptop) as well as being projected to a second wall. I realize I could have the TV and phone/projector do this independently, but when we inevitable have a lag in the bandwidth for one of them, they will no longer be in sync and half the room could be 2-5+ seconds ahead of the other people. When I plug my Moto Z into my computer my options are basicically just to charge the phone or exchange pics/files, but nothing about the projector. Alternatively, if the software update could allow the phone to broadcast onto a laptop or TV it is plugged into and run the show off the phone (rather than running everything from a laptop), that would work, too. But this could pretty well help make the projector even more kick-booty. :-)

Thanks.

I need the projector mod to be seen as a second screen as well but for a business reason.  I want to be able to run Google slides and see the presenter view on my phone and the presentation using the projector.

 

I also would use the second screen as a Chromecast type of setup so that I can turn my phone screen off and use the phone connected to a remote desktop as a PC with a USB kb/mouse connected to the phone via a USB3 hub.

Has there been anything done to get this feature? I really like the thought of using my phone as a second screen to my computer. Although there are many programs to do so, the latency is horrible, and I believe that an official update for it would be best.

Yes, I also would like to be able to use my business laptop and project using the Moto Z projector mod. This would be very useful.

Yes I too would find it very valuable if I could use my Insta-share Projector on my phone to project my laptop screen.  My scenario is to be in a conference room which does not have a projector and be able to project my laptop screen to the wall via my Moto Z projector...in fact my screen is actually a Remote Desktop Session.

Use this app - free trial with limited time display - $3.99 to purchase: CastReceiver

 

App turns your phone into a chromecast receviver. Your phone will appear in your Chromecast list along side other chromecast devices on your wifi network. Once you select your phone in the list your Chromebook display will be mirrored on the phone.
