Android Tablet Mirroring to MacBook

Note:

In a recent update made by Google, the Google Home app no longer supports screen mirroring to a wide range of receiver technology. However, natively screen mirroring your Android device to your computer still works great. This guide shows you how.

Ignore everything below this. Get answers to your questions by clicking the link above.

Wirelessly casting your Android phone or tablet to your computer is easy.

With the right tools, you’ll be mirroring your screen in seconds.

What you need: 

  • Google Home app
  • Reflector 3

If you’re an Android user, you probably have the Google Home app installed on your device. If not, go ahead and download it now from the Google Play Store. It’s free.

Then, download Reflector 3 to mirror your device screen to your computer.

Reflector is an app that turns your computer into a wireless mirroring receiver. It works on both Mac and Windows computers. With Reflector, you can mirror and record devices straight to your computer screen—no cords attached. Buy it ($14.99) or try it for free here
