Step-by-step screen mirroring instructions for Google Pixel 8

Step 1 — Connect to the network

You’ll need to make sure that your Pixel 8 phone is connected to the same wifi network as the TV or device you want to mirror to.

Swipe down from the top of the Pixel screen to reveal the Quick Settings menu. Find the “Internet” option to verify that your phone is connected to the correct network. If not, tap Internet and connect to the appropriate network.

Note: You can also access your device’s “Network & Internet” settings in the full Pixel settings menu.

Step 2 — Select the Cast option

Swipe down from the top of the Pixel screen to reveal the Quick Settings menu. Select the “Screen Cast” option. If you can’t find it, swipe from right to left on the Quick Settings menu to reveal more settings.

If you still can’t find the Screen Cast option, tap the pencil icon to reveal a complete list of Pixel 8 settings. While in this view, you can rearrange the settings tiles by pressing and holding a tile, then dragging it to a new spot on your screen. This is helpful if you want to keep your most frequently used features in the main Quick Settings menu for easy access.

Step 3 — Select a Cast destination

A list of available Cast receivers on your network will appear. Select the device you want to connect to.

Note: It’s important to know if the device you are trying to Cast to has Cast-receiving capabilities. Most new TVs from popular brands like LG, Vizio, Sony and Hisense come with Cast receiving, though you may need to enable Cast in the TV settings. Additionally, digital media players such as a Chromecast device can turn any display with an HDMI input into a Cast receiver.

Step 4 — Begin Casting

You may need to approve permissions or confirm that you wish to begin screen mirroring your Google Pixel 8. Approve permissions and click “Start now.”

Step 5 — Stop mirroring

To stop mirroring, simply swipe down from the top of the Pixel screen, tap Screen Cast and disconnect.

In-app Casting

Many Google Pixel 8 apps, such as YouTube, include the ability to begin casting directly from within the app. The Casting icon is usually a rectangle with three curved lines in the corner. Tap the icon and select your receiver to connect wirelessly.

Best way to wirelessly present Google Pixel 8 at work and school

Collaborative spaces like schools and businesses require an easy way for people to share what’s on their device screens to larger displays. They need a single solution that works with the Google Pixel 8 and many other device types, like iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows and Chromebooks.

Native Cast technology isn’t suitable for these environments. Cast doesn’t work for the wide array of device types these spaces must accommodate. Additionally native mirroring protocols like Cast and AirPlay often require corporate or school network modifications that do not align with security standards or the existing network structure.

We recommend using Ditto for wireless collaboration in schools and businesses. Ditto works with all of your devices and allows users to: 

  • Share from one device to multiple screens

  • Share from multiple devices to one screen

  • Annotate shared content

  • Moderate screen mirroring sessions

  • Share windows, apps and browsers

  • Display digital signage on idle screens…while keeping them collaboration-ready

  • And so much more!

Use Ditto software to bring wireless collaboration capabilities to existing TVs, projectors, interactive whiteboards and other displays.
