MOTO G "Cast Screen" Not working (MiraCast/wireless display)

MOTO G is getting popular day by day. It a really nice budget phone with features to attract anyone. If you bought MOTO G and excited about the Cast Screen option in Display setting then this article will explain all your doubts. Why it is not working? Will screen cast work on MOTO G? Read on for details.

What is Cast Screen?
Cast screen is same as MiraCast / Wireless display or Screen Mirroring. Using this feature you can wireless cast your mobile phone screen to a supported device (TV, Blueray Player or connected adapters).


MOTO G Cast Screen/ MiraCast / Wireless display
Settings >> Display >> Cast Screen >> "NO DEVICE FOUND" that`s it.



Can you use Cast Screen on MOTO G?
As of now NO. I called MOTO support to confirm this and they said the hardware is capable of doing it but they have disabled it as of now due to some performance constraints. It will be enabled with future software upgrade.

Only option you have right now is to use Chrome Cast which allows you to cast screen on Chromecast supported Apps.
