Huawei P9 – How to Mirror My Screen to My TV or PC
Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy the multimedia content from your Android device on a big screen? Thankfully, you can easily mirror the Huawei P9 screen to your TV or PC. This turns your phone into a powerful HD screencasting device.
What’s more, there is no need to squeeze together when you want to preview homemade videos and pictures. Mirroring allows you to sit back and flip through your P9 family albums on your TV.
There are a few different ways to do this, so make sure to check them out in the guide below.
Mirroring to a Smart TV
Those who have a smart TV are in luck since the Huawei P9 comes with a native mirroring app. The app is called MirrorShare and it’s easy to use. Here’s what you need to do:
1. Activate Screen Mirroring on Your TV
Go into the TV’s menu, find the mirroring option, and make sure it’s on. The option is usually found under Network or Display settings, but this depends on the smart TV model.
2. Enable MirrorShare
Launch the Settings app on your Huawei P9 and tap MirrorShare under Advanced Settings.
3. Tap on Your TV
Wait for a few seconds for the app to detect your TV, then tap on it to establish the connection. You should now be able to see your Huawei P9 screen on the TV.
Using a Hard-Wired Connection
If you don’t have a smart TV, there is no need to worry. You can mirror the phone’s screen via an MHL to HDMI adapter. These adapters are easy to come by online or at smartphone accessories shops.
1. Plug In the Adapter
Plug the micro USB end of the adapter into your P9 and connect the other end to an HDMI cable. The cable needs to be connected to a free HDMI port on your TV.
2. Set Up the TV
Select the correct HDMI port on your TV and set it to receive media from your phone.
3. Play a Video
Launch the app you want to mirror from and enjoy the content on the big screen.
Mirror to Your PC
To screencast from your Huawei P9 to a PC, you need some help from a third-party app. There are many apps available, but ApowerMirror is one of the most popular options.
Besides mirroring, ApowerMirror allows you to control your phone via PC, take screenshots, and record the phone’s screen. Here’s how to use it:
1. Get the App
Download and install ApowerMirror on your PC and P9.
2. Launch ApowerMirror
Tap on the app on your phone to open, then hit the blue M button. When your PC shows up on the screen, select it to make the connection.
Note: For the connection to work, your Huawei P9 and PC need to be on the same network.
3. Hit Start Now
This action initiates real-time mirroring to your PC. If you want to stop, just click on the yellow icon next to the PC’s name.
It’s great that the Huawei P9 comes with native software that allows mirroring to your smart TV. Even if you decide to use the MHL to HDMI adapter, screencasting is still super easy, so don’t hesitate to give it a try and start watching your favorite content on a big screen.
