Do you want to show your phone's screen on a TV or a projector? or maybe you want to learn how to use your phone with a computer. the holy grail of technology right? Maybe you want to watch a movie and play it at the same time. I've tried most of these apps, but they all have their pros and cons.

so, this is why i decided to make a list of good and useful apps that might help you improve how you express yourself and your technology geniusness :) I'll try to explain better for each app that i've listed down below.


Shareplay is a feature that allows you to share your screen with another person. It's available on Android TV, but it's also available on phones and tablets. Shareplay can be used to show off your game progress, or even play your favorite multiplayer games with friends. There are plenty of apps that support shareplay, but some of them aren't very good.

We've compiled a list of 14 apps that support shareplay so you can get started with this fun new feature right away! Youtube The most popular video sharing site in the world also supports shareplay! You can show off your favorite videos or even create your own live stream using YouTube's mobile app while someone else watches on their TV.

Google chrome

Google Chrome One of the most popular browsers on the planet, Chrome has a built-in screen sharing feature that lets you share your entire desktop with a friend. It's not as robust as some of the other options here, but it gets the job done. Google Drive Google Drive is one of those apps that comes pre-installed on many Android phones and tablets.

And with good reason: it's an excellent way to store files online for easy access from anywhere in the world. But did you know that you can also use it to share files with others? All you have to do is open up one of your files and select "share" from the menu at the bottom of the screen.

Then choose "Google Drive." From there, type in an email address or phone number for whomever you'd like to share your file with and click "send.

Shareplay is a feature that allows you to share your screen with other devices. It’s not a new feature, but it’s only been available to select apps. Google has just rolled out an API that will allow any Android app to support shareplay. Now, you can use it in all kinds of apps, including games and presentations.

So many possibilities! Here are some of the best apps that support shareplay: Red Bull TV You can stream live sports events and catch-up on shows on your phone or tablet with this app. The Red Bull TV app also supports shareplay so you can watch it on your TV or projector if you have one!

Hulu This app lets you stream thousands of TV shows and movies from different networks and offers plenty of content for kids too. You can also enjoy exclusive shows like The Handmaid’s Tale and Castle Rock with Hulu Live TV. With Hulu’s new Share Play feature, you can now watch these shows on your TV screen by connecting your smartphone or tablet to an external display device (like a Chromecast).


Shareplay is a handy feature that allows you to share your screen with other devices, but it’s not supported by every app. In fact, there are only a few Android apps that support this feature. Netflix If you have a Chromecast device and want to watch Netflix on the big screen, you can use Netflix’s Shareplay feature.

Simply open up the app on your phone or tablet and select “Share your Screen” on the video you want to watch. You will then be able to choose which device you want to use — whether it be your TV or computer. Once you pick a device, touch “OK” and wait for the video to start playing on that screen.

Google Play Movies & TV Google Play Movies & TV is available for both Android and iOS devices, so if you want to watch some movies or TV shows on your big screen without having to buy them again from Apple, you can use Google’s Shareplay feature. Open up the app on your phone or tablet, select a movie from its library (you must have purchased it from Google Play), and tap “View/Share Screen” at the bottom of the title bar.

Sharing your screen on Android isn't a new feature, but it's not as common as it could be. There are plenty of apps that allow you to share your screen with a friend or family member, so why aren't more people using them? The answer is simple: there's no good way to share your screen on Android.

Apps like AirDroid and ShareIt offer the ability to share your screen, but they don't work with every app and require you to install a new app on each device. This can be inconvenient for users who just want to share their screen with someone else for a few minutes.

Thankfully, there are some apps that make it easy to share your screen without installing anything extra.

Daily motion

If you're like most Android users, you probably share your screen with friends and family from time to time. Whether it's showing them a photo or video you've taken or sharing your progress on a game, there are plenty of reasons to do so. A lot of apps support screen-sharing on Android, but not all of them do it well.

Some apps are designed exclusively for sharing screens between two devices, while others are just trying to shoehorn their functionality into a feature that they don't fully support. That's why we've compiled this list of the best screen-sharing apps for Android. These apps all offer different features, but they tend to work in similar ways: You launch an app on one device and then connect another device (like your phone) through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth so that it can receive the shared content.

Some apps will require that both devices be on the same wireless network in order to work effectively. Others can connect over Bluetooth without requiring a connection to the internet (though some may still need a 4G/LTE connection).

Hulu plus

When you're watching a movie or TV show on your phone, tablet, or laptop, why not share the experience with friends and family? You can do that easily with apps like Kodi (formerly XBMC), Plex and Netflix. But what if you're using an Android device? There are plenty of apps out there that let you share your screen to a TV or projector — but they aren't all created equal.

Here are 14 Android apps that will let you share your screen on a big screen: Hulu Plus: The streaming service has been around for years, but it's still one of the best ways to watch TV without cable. With Hulu Plus (Android), you can stream current episodes of shows like "The Big Bang Theory" and "Family Guy" as well as past seasons.

But what about live television? For that, you'll need to upgrade to Hulu Live TV (Android) for $40 per month. Kodi (formerly XBMC): If there's one app every cord-cutter should have installed on their device, it's Kodi (formerly XBMC). This open-source media player allows users to play back just about any video format imaginable — including those pesky DRM files from iTunes and Amazon Prime Video.

Amazon prime video

Amazon Prime Video is one of the best video streaming services out there. It’s also one of the few that support screen mirroring, so you can easily share your screen with Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and other smart TVs and streaming devices. Amazon Prime Video lets you use any Android or iOS device as a remote control for your TV.

You can also stream music from your phone to your smart speaker and many other features. The app is free to download on Google Play and iTunes Store.


There are a lot of apps that can share your screen with others. Here are some of the best ones that support SharePlay: Twitch Twitch is an online streaming platform for video games. It was launched in 2011 by Justin Kan and Emmett Shear, both of whom were previously part of Justin.tv, another live streaming website.

The service focuses on video game live streaming and allows users to interact with each other through text, voice and video chat. Discord Discord is a free voice and text chat app designed specifically for gamers. It features an integrated web browser and screen sharing capabilities, which allow you to broadcast your gameplay directly to your Discord server.

The app also supports several popular audio formats like FLAC, MP3 and OGG. This means you can listen to music while playing games without any lag or latency issues.

Facebook watch

Facebook Watch is a new video platform from Facebook designed to help people find, watch and share videos on Facebook. It’s still in an early testing phase, but it has some good content, including exclusive shows and sports games. The app also has a feature called SharePlay that lets you stream videos to a TV or projector.

It works like this: Open up the Facebook Watch app on your phone, select the video you want to share, then tap “Share” and select “Share Play.” The video will then open up on your phone and start playing automatically on your TV or projector with no need for wires or cables.

This is one of my favorite apps for sharing my screen because it’s so easy to use. You can just stick your phone into a Google Cardboard headset and then look at the screen through the lenses (or use any other VR headset). Your friends don’t even have to download anything — they can just click and play!

Tbs app

Shareplay is a feature that lets you share your screen with another Android device. It's a useful tool for presentations, teaching, or showing off apps to friends. The feature is already built into some apps, but there are also several third-party solutions available on the Play Store. The following apps all support shareplay and let you share your screen from your Android device to any TV or projector.

TBS App TBS (Turner Broadcasting System) is an American media conglomerate that owns television channels, digital media properties and film production studios. The company has developed a dedicated app for its live TV streaming service called TBS NOW which allows users to watch all of TBS's shows on demand. The app also supports shareplay so you can project it onto a bigger screen while still using your phone as a remote control.

Netflix Netflix is one of the most popular video streaming services in the world with over 137 million users around the globe. The service has been around since 1997 when it started out as a DVD rental service before transitioning into an online streaming platform where users could watch movies and TV shows on their PCs or mobile devices without having to worry about how much data they were using up each month.

Hbo now, hbo go and hbo max apps.

The apps above are just a few of the many that support shareplay, but it's a good start. HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO Max HBO Now is the latest app from HBO. It allows you to stream all of your favorite shows from the premium channel without having to pay for cable.

The same goes for HBO Go and HBO Max, which also let you watch content from your favorite shows. Netflix Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services around. It has thousands of movies and TV shows available at any given time, so there's always something new to watch on Netflix.

But what if you want to share your screen with someone who isn't watching Netflix? Well, you can use shareplay to do just that! Google Play Movies & TV Google Play Movies & TV is an app that lets you rent or buy movies and TV shows from Google's online store.

This app has been around since 2013 and has gained popularity over time because it provides users with plenty of options when it comes to entertainment choices. The only problem with this app is that it doesn't support shareplay yet — hopefully Google will add this feature soon!

Vevo app.

There are plenty of apps that let you share your screen with Chromecast, but not all of them support Android TV or casting. If you want to share your phone's screen with a TV, you're going to need an app that supports mirroring. The best way to find out which apps do this is by asking around on social media.

I've found that Vevo is the most popular choice for sharing music videos with friends and family, because it's easy to use and has a huge selection of songs from different artists. Vevo is free, but if you want access to the full catalogs for certain artists, like Taylor Swift or Kendrick Lamar, then you'll have to pay $10 per month for Vevo Premium.

There are also ads in between songs unless you pay up for Premium as well. But there are plenty of other great options out there too.

In a nutshell

We are excited to see that their are more and more apps dedicated to screen sharing on android than ever before. We however picked the best suited apps that we were able to find after doing our research and some digging around online. They will all work with any smartphone or tablet, as well as a PC or Mac.

Most of the apps are even cloud or web app services, so you don't even have to download them on your device beforehand! All of these apps were tried by us and we can honestly say that they work.
