Connect to monitor

2020-08-13, 21:17 PM

Hi

 

Received my new Moto g pro a couple of days ago and am very pleased with it so far.

 

I wondered if the phone is compatible with a usb c to hdmi cable or dock to put the screen onto an external monitor?

 

Thanks

Hi Rf87,

 

I appreciate your post. Are you trying to cast your phone? You can use Chromecast for this feature.

Rich,

 

I would like to know the answer also.

Can't speak for the OP but I would always choose usb-c to HDMI over casting.

Hi Cuddly,

 

You can only cast the phone through Chromescast. Please see this link for reference on how to cast your phone. Thanks.

Thanks, Rich, I know how to use Google Cast but avoid it because Chrome is intrusive and prone to malware attacks so am interested to know if USB-C to HDMI would work.

Thanks is for both replies.

 

I'm with the other poster here, I know how to cast but would rather a wired connection, something that hdmi alt mode would allow, if the phone is compatible

Hi Cuddly, Rf87,

 

Unfortunately, the phone cannot cast through USB-C to HDMI. You can try but I can't guarantee it will work. The only you can cast is through Chromecast.
