We've all been there before: Whether at home, at work or in a meeting, how many times have you needed to wirelessly share your Windows Surface Pro screen? How many times were you unable to because of incompatible technology?

Luckily, there’s an app for that: AirParrot 2.

AirParrot allows Mac and Windows computers to wirelessly stream media and send screens to Apple TV, HomePod, Chromecast and computers running Reflector 3 software. No clunky cables, no wires, no headaches. This guide shows you how.

Step 1

Download and install AirParrot on your computer. It’s available for macOS, Windows and Chrome OS.

Step 2

Gather your devices. In addition to your Surface Pro, you’ll need a receiver (where you’ll send your screen). This can be an Apple TV, Homepod, Chromecast or another computer running Reflector software.

Tips

If you want to screen mirror to a projector, simply connect a computer running Reflector or an Apple TV to the projector with an HDMI cord. Then use AirParrot to wirelessly mirror your Surface Pro screen to the Apple TV or Reflector-enabled computer. You’ll be wirelessly screen mirroring in seconds.

Don’t have an Apple TV or a Chromecast? You can download Reflector software to turn any computer into a wireless receiver. Check out Reflector 3 here.

You can screen mirror more than a Surface Pro. AirParrot works on any Windows or Mac computer.

Take advantage of audio-only mode with AirParrot. Just hover over the “Audio only” section in the AirParrot menu and choose which audio source you want to send.
