Android devices are good, but their small size can sometimes be limiting. When you connect your device to a projector, you can share the screen with others for business or pleasure. Here are some ways to do it.
If you do not have a projector, you can also connect Android to a TV. However, projectors are the better option, as they typically project a much larger screen size than a TV, making them ideal for media playback or data presentations.

Connect wirelessly via Chromecast
The easiest way to connect an Android device to a projector is to use Google Chromecast. To do this, your projector must support HDMI connections.
When you connect the Chromecast to the HDMI port, you can wirelessly stream the screen of your Android device to it. Your Chromecast will then display the content through the projector.
Make sure you have disabled some power saving mode on your Android device, as it may reduce the quality of the power.
If you don't already have the Google Home app, download and install it from the Google Play Store.
Open the "Home" app, then touch the Accounts tab in the lower right corner.
Scroll down and tap "Mirror Device."
If you see a warning that your device is not "optimized for casting, press" OK. "This should not prevent you from casting your screen to a Chromecast.
Press "Cast Screen / Audio" and then select your Chromecast to connect to it.
When connected, your monitor should start streaming to your projector through your Chromecast.
If a wireless option is not suitable, you can use a fixed connection instead. All Android devices have either a microUSB or USB-C option.
The right cable allows you to connect your Android device to a projector that directly uses an HDMI cable. Another standard Supported is MHL, which also connects via HDMI ports.
USB-C to HDMI cable
Newer Android devices, like the latest Samsung phones, use USB-C to charge. If you have a USB-C drive, you can use a USB-C to HDMI cable to connect your device directly to an HDMI capable projector.
