Moto G7 Play .... Cast / Mirroring

2019-07-15, 18:03 PM

Can anyone confirm that the G7 Play still has the same option of being able to cast / mirror your screen as some of the older versions as shown in this video from 55 second to about 1.30

This is the only way I can get the audio from a video playing in chrome or youtube app to play to a chromecast audio (as opposed to a chromecast video device) and a lot of other Android phones don't have this as an option.

Hi Witterings1,

 

Thanks for posting. Yes, you can still cast from the Moto G7 Play to the TV by tapping on the cast option in quick settings. If you want to know more about casting your Moto G7 Play to the TV here a link from our website. 

 

Best regards,
Zeke

The only way that my Moto g7 power can do it is with locacast free app in the play store, not true screen mirroring but can cast local content and it has a web browser and can cast from movie sites. Amazon has a version for firestick as receiver called localcast on fire

I had a Samsung Galaxy a 20 and it would give me the option to smart view instead of cast... I have Sony Blu-ray player I used to use smart view to watch my Netflix excetera on my TV through my Blu-ray player... However whenever use my Motorola G7 Optimus and press the option cast it's not picking up my Blu-ray player is there any apps on marketplace I can get that will allow this? I've tried many but cannot find one that I can find to work personally

Hi Dillon25,

 

 

What application are you using? Are you trying to quick cast from Youtube using the option in the pull down quick settings? It's possible that the player would need to support Google Play TV and Movies. Can you please confirm the make and the model of the Sony Blu-ray player you're using?  Thanks.

 

Best regards,
