Screen Mirroring: What does that mean?

In most smartphones, you can use screen mirroring (casting) to wirelessly cast the content from the phone to another device, usually a TV or external monitor. The Big screen helps display photos, play games, and watching movies. 

A smart TV has screen mirroring built-in, but older TVs require a media stick or a media player to work with screen mirroring. Screen mirroring is available on many media streaming devices, including the Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick, and Roku.
