LG Stylo 6 screen mirroring without chromecast /cast to tv,roku,firestick

The Glass back on LG Stylo 6 gives it a premium look & the huge 6.8 inches display gives it the same look like the current flagship device LG Velvet. Only when you delve in deeper you get to know it’s a budget smartphone with a luxurious outer shell.

You cannot keep your expectations high at a budget price of $179. It even misses the common smartphone features such as Face Unlock and Notification light. On top of that, it uses a mediocre entry-level Mediatek P35 processor.

For lag-free Screen Mirroring, the phone should have a decent processor. Let’s find out whether the Stylo 6 offers Miracast support or not –

Does the LG Stylo 6 have Screen Mirroring/Miracast?

The phone should have Miracast support for Screen Mirroring. We need to look for the “Cast” option in Settings.

Let’s open the Settings app on our Stylo 6.

I searched for the “Cast” option everywhere on the phone but couldn’t find it anywhere.

So, how to mirror the Stylo 6 screen to the TV without the Cast option?

We need to use a 3rd party app to cast Stylo 6 screen to Roku, Firestick, or to any other Android Smart TV. Let’s see how to do that –
