We have previously covered how Vysor can help cast Android screen, but it is limited by the wired connectivity. Although there are other third-party apps, nothing beats the Connect app to cast Android on Windows 10.

The latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update now allows smartphones to be connected to your Windows 10 desktop or laptop. The feature is not yet available for iOS users, but Android devices that support Miracast can enjoy this feature.

Step 1: Open the Connect app on your Windows 10 PC

Find the Connect app on your Windows 10 device from the Search menu and fire it up. The app will launch and check for available connections. You will be able to see the name of your PC, which will appear as the host device on your Android.
