Thankfully, the HTC U11 allows you to mirror its display to a bigger screen, be it your smart TV or your computer monitor. This functionality doesn’t only help protect your eye health but it also provides you with a much deeper experience when watching streaming videos, recordings, shows, and other types of multimedia content.

HTC U11 Screen Mirroring to Smart TV

Today’s smart TVs make it very easy to mirror your HTC U11’s screen. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Check your Smart TV for an option labeled “Mirroring” and enable it. This option may appear as an app or a special input depending on your device and its software design.
  2. Open HTC Connect by swiping up with three fingers while on your Home screen.
  3. You will be asked to choose a device to stream to – select “Choose other”.
  4. Find and point to your TV. Done!

Keep in mind that this method will only work for smart TVs that support Miracast. This wireless screencasting protocol became a standard in late 2012, so all smart TV sets manufactured in 2013 and later should have built-in support for it.

If your TV doesn’t support Miracast, you can buy a cheap dongle online. Once you plug it into your TV’s HDMI and USB ports, just follow the simple instructions displayed on your TV’s screen to set it up. Once done, follow the above steps to start mirroring the screen of your HTC U11 to your smart TV using the Miracast dongle.

HTC U11 Screen Mirroring to PC Screen

You can just as easily mirror your HTC U11 to your computer screen. To do this, you will need a third-party app equipped to mirror Android devices to computers. One of the most popular choices is Vysor, a screen mirroring app that works on Windows, Mac, as well as Linux and is also available as a Chrome extension.

The HTC U11 is one of just a few phones on the market that supports USB-C to HDMI adapters. To mirror your screen to your PC, all you need to do is to buy a USB-C to HDMI adapter and use it to connect your phone to a HDMI-enabled display.

This method is valid for any HDMI-equipped port, which means that it will also work when you need to mirror your phone’s screen to a projector or as an alternative way to mirror your HTC U11 to a TV.
