Miracast on Windows Phone 8.1

Miracast and Windows Phone 8.1 hands-on video

When the proper Windows Phone 8.1 update rolls out in the coming weeks, it will be bundled with new firmware. For Nokia devices this firmware is dubbed ‘Lumia Cyan’ and it will enable some advanced features, including Miracast support.

Miracast is a well-received standard for mirroring the contents of one device onto another. If you have a newer TV or have purchased a Miracast USB dongle, you can display your Windows 8.1 device onto a larger screen, which is great for sharing or demonstrating software and media. Prior to Windows Phone 8.1, this support was not present but Microsoft has since added to the latest update.*

If you’re running Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers, you can find the ‘Project my screen’ option under Settings. However, you’ll notice the warning about not being able to project your screen with a wireless connection, and that’s due to the missing drivers, which will be supplied by your phone’s manufacturer.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is already shipping with Windows Phone 8.1 and the Lumia Cyan firmware, so it stands to reason that support for Miracast is present. As you can see from our hands on video, it certainly is, and it works quite well. Users will have separate volume control for the audio portion of the mirroring, and the lag is quite minimal. Whether you want to show off your photos, play a video game or watch a video, you’ll soon be able to do so from your Windows Phone.

Miracast on Windows Phone 8.1

Check out our above video and let us know what you think in comments. Is Miracast something you’re excited about and if so, how are you planning to use it?

*Note: only some devices with newer chipsets will have Miracast support due to certain hardware requirements. The Lumia 1520, Lumia Icon, Lumia 930 and Lumia 63x should be receiving support with the Lumia Cyan update.

Still waiting on Miracast for Xbox One...

Ikr? They need to do something like that like how Apple does AirPlay with Apple TV.

i didnt know AirPlay did screen sharing... thought it was for media playback, like PlayTo.

sonus says:

Yes, AirPlay does screen sharing as well - but as far as I know it only works for iOS, not OS X.  Wheras miracast works universally across Windows, WP, and Android.

hughesnet says:

No, it works from OSX as well.

sonus says:

Even cheaper then buying an Xbox One just for Miracast is Netgear PTV3000 for $50.

 

This little guy has allowed me to stream anything (HBOGo, Shotime Anytime, MaxGo, MKV movies, etc) to by big screen TV in my living room and bedroom.  I convinced the office to get one for wireless presentations.  And now, I'll probably be bringing it along with me to hotels, so that I can stream movies to the hotel TV.

 

THIS!  Does WPCentral have any word on when it will come?

josipogo says:

So, definitely there is no support for Miracast on 920, shame.

cesar ruiz1 says:

Doesn't the Samsung galaxy s3 have Miracast its the same chip as the Lumia 920.

Zaki Smile says:

Not exactly the same, but according to Wikipedia does Xperia V and Xperia TL support Miracast http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracast and at the second link you can see that they have SOC as Lumia 820, 920 and 925 (MSM8960) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_%28system_on_chip%29#Snapdragon_S4 and the same amout of RAM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xperia .

The once again Nokia stated this on their blog "

"Adreno 225 GPU for Graphics Processing

The Adreno 225 GPU ensures smooth gameplay, high frame rates, and enhanced scenes with jaw-dropping effects. But it’s not just games that benefit. Augmented reality such as that used by Nokia City Lenses, 2D to 3D conversion, and Miracast (Wireless Display) all gain, too."

"http://conversations.nokia.com/2012/12/11/how-qualcomm-cooks-up-the-noki...

So it is probably not a hardware limitation for the Lumia 920.

Reebs Reebs says:

I will be greatly disappointed to see the 920/925 having the required hardware but but the support. I invested in a nest receiver to replace my Chromecast since my phone doesn't work with it.

ricsip says:

Such disgusting moves keep the economy not (yet) collapsing: vendors can force you to buy new phone every year if you need a new feature. Fullfill your civic duty, and be an obedient consumer: consume!

Yes. If the device and OS has capability, they shouldn't disable it. hate those greedy goons in industry promoting consumerism. The demand is not to keep the devices up to date eternally. Its just a matter of fairness! One or two years old device is not old enough to get this heinous bastard-child treatment..

ortizang says:

Dude, you're not alone. I also have a 920. I guess I'll have to get a new smartphone!

MrWhiteman says:

It's getting to be about time my 920 was upgraded anyway. I like the look of the 930. Could sell the 920 to pay off the rest of my contract and get a 930.

HomeBound12 says:

Sadly here in Canada we won't have that option...

So what's one to do? Buy unlocked from U S of A or downgrade to 630.

It feels like we're forced to choose between two sucky options... kinda like party choices during elections over here...

xelaio says:

I also trust/wait for update software from MS/Nokia wp8.1. I really tried to be calm waiting to use L920 at full capacity/hardware since 2012. But, very disepointed, Miracast on 920, shame. 1000$ payed for L920 (end of 2012) and very big mistake to trust in MS. Pe romaneste, dezamagit si cu siguranta nu mai cumpar wp. Rusine MS.

Yangstax says:

The Nokia Play To app is doing quite well to stream photos and videos to DLNA TV.  But it doesn't do mirroring as Miracast would.

ravi.tandon says:

If only PlayTo showed collection as folders than one giant list. My whatsapp videos ruin its usage.

kenzibit says:

I think Microsoft is just lazying around and throwing dusts in our eyes just to blind us and not give existing flagships support off miracast. The Lumia 920 and above phones I know can support miracast but Microsoft just don't want us to have it. Too bad cuz similar flagships in android are supported.

OMG55 says:

The 920 is yep years old now or just under two.... Are you one of those people who want phones to get every upgrade forever?

Reebs Reebs says:

So is the galaxy s3. Around the same age but it sure supports it. It's better later then never. If the hardware shorts it, then shame on them if they don't do it.

OMG55 says:

Samsung is its own OEM, however Microsoft is dependent on others which I'd long after the s3.

MadSci2 says:

Uhhh, Microsoft owns Lumias now.

Fiann says:

And which phone would you recommend those of us on AT&T with a 920 upgrade to? Our options are the 1520 and, um, that's it.

There's always the 1020. Love the screensize of the 1520 but the 1020's camera is still second to none and I don't see Oy replacing it with a better device anytime soon...

Fiann says:

1020 doesn't support Miracast either and is basically the same internals as the 920, just with a better camera and more RAM. So that doesn't help.

OMG55 says:

930, you've been patient this long. But since you mentioned the 1520, I put my hands on s trees one and I'd an excellent device

Fiann says:

930 isn't coming to the US. Even if I had $600 to plunk down up front, as far as I know I'd be limited to HSPA data speeds on it and that's a deal breaker at this point.

OMG55 says:

Nokia was involved in this process and I'm sure they didn't include mirror cast a ability in this phone. Microsoft just took control of Nokia devices/services two months ago.

guyjkh says:

I don't think it's a hardware issue! If my old N9 can do miracast, the L920 should also do it! I think it's more like a marketing strategy for us to upgrade...

nizzon says:

Who the hell will buy a new phone to get miracast? Seriously how often would you project your screen? I have never felt the need. For music I just use bluetooth.

Its probably processors/gpus & ram that aren't good enough to handle it as far as creating a consistent experience to the quality that ms wants people to see

mdram says:

But I just got my 920.....:(

Yakko Warner says:

Welcome to my world.

-810

aschettler says:

The problem lies with the display driver for the Snapdragon S4 chipset on Windows Phone. It's up to Qualcomm to make those drivers compatible with all of the features of the updated Windows Display Driver Model in WP8.1. It's a similar situation with people who have laptops with the 2nd Gen Intel Core processors (Sandy Bridge). These drivers, though they are still being updated, don't support all the features of WDDM 1.3 in Windows 8.1, so I don't have Miracast support on my laptop even though it supports Intel WiDi.

Fiann says:

That makes a little more sense at least.

salmanahmad says:

Shouldn't the Lumia 820(and above) also support Miracast as the hardware used on those devices, despite being old, is still more powerful than Lumia 630.

Nik Rolls says:

It's not about how powerful it is, it's about dedicated hardware support for Miracast.

link68759 says:

Which the 820 and above actually have.

For one, it's not about speed but rather the chipset. Number two, you'd be surprised at what a Snapdragon quad-core can do, even at 1.2 GHz, for benchmarks ;)

willboyce says:

Can 1020 support this

What does the end of the article say? Hmmm...

TuanLVT says:

i guess not :( i have 1020 too :/

well that's a shame! I thought of my 1020 as a kind of newish model! doh! I can't convince myself to upgrade to anything with less than 41 mega pixels, even if it gives me Miracast.

Newish model but an olderish chipset :/

theefman says:

Nokia themselves confirmed the S4 chipset supports Miracast http://conversations.nokia.com/2012/12/11/how-qualcomm-cooks-up-the-nokia-lumia-920s-processor-chip/. Not going to argue as I know Microsoft wont support it but the chipset definitely supports Miracast.

Oh I'm sure it does, but there's probably some reason that MS didn't enable this on older devices, including performance issues and writing the drivers for it. As cool as Miracast is, especially for developers who want to show off their work, I don't know a single person who uses it. In other words, I think stuff like Cortana and the Notification Center are of higher priority for backwards development. Just guesses on my part.

I could see that theres a licensing cost to it that the oems pay to Qualcomm like they do for fm radio.
Well if they dont yet natively support it on x86 RT why should they bother with wp aside from supplementing lack of mhl. I couldn't justify the price to use it on my WiDi laptop the receivers are to expensive

Reebs Reebs says:

I used it! Many people use it too. The Netgear PTV3000 is selling a lot. People with Android phones and newer PCs (like the Surface) all support it. I bought the Netgear as a replacement to Chromescast because my 925 didn't work with it but my Surface does. I had expectations that the phone will work as well since it has a comparable hardware to Galaxy S3. I really hope they change that decision especially that close to 95% of thr user base now have phones that don't support it.

link68759 says:

That's all well and good until you consider that the 820 and other devices have a WiFi direct module with no use whatsoever.

The hardware inside these phones will go unused because wp8 doesn't have any other function involving WiFi direct, and I'm willing to bet it's all about marketing the newer phones.

'Older' devices? My L1020 is not even 12 months old!

TuanLVT says:

Hope MSFT change their mind and support 1020

ricsip says:

They wont. Period.

If you manage to get some 50-100.000 votes on usersvoice forum from angry consumers, AND if you have some good connections in the media so the news picks up this topic in order to spread negative marketing of WP so it hurts MS in the guts, they may re-think that. Otherwise start accepting the inevitable: no miracast for outdated prehistoric -not-even-1,5yrs-old-phones.

Ps: if didnt realize, the majority of the post was fueled by sarcasm.

Um, 1020 isn't even 1yr old yet...sad...

guyjkh says:

+920 ... My old N9 with it's TI OMAP 3630 chipset and 1 GHz Cortex A8 CPU supports Miracast so yeah, no doupt about the S4 chipset supporting it too

FBirraque says:

I still waiting Miracast on Lumia 920 and 1020.

Ed Boland says:

The Project My Screen in settings works on my 1020 with the cable (USB), so I would assume it would work over WiFi once we get Cyan firmware and the drivers for it? Am I wrong?

Ordeith says:

It would be a good time to roll out that promised Miracast support in the Xbox one. July update, perhaps?

Craig Howe says:

Such a shame the 1020 doesn't support.

Ed Boland says:

Well, I've had the "Project my Screen" function in settings on my 1020 work fine with the USB cable, so I was assuming once we get the Cyan firmware, and the drivers, it would work over WiFi?

Isn't "Project my Screen" and "Miracast" the same thing?

False. Miracast is a peer to peer connection formed over Wi-Fi, not wired. What I wrote in the article is the truth, as of now no Miracsat for the 1020.

KrSatyam04 says:

But Please tell us that is it possible somehow or just impossible?
Bcoz, I am thinking about this equation-
"Project My Screen" + "Play To" = "MiraCast"
(fingers crossed)

KrSatyam04 says:

nasellok says:

we are slowly but surely getting there - another feature we have longed for - cheers to MS WP8.1 team

Hmm this for Xbox One? Ps how do i delete songs of my phone? Whatever I do. The songs just wont delete. (Cortana is being annoying)

Jf.Vigor says:

Try files app

Yeah, I tried that. Song gets duplicated when hit delete. And that's amazingly Weird to me. Getting a new SD card and swap the whole damn thing. But thanks anyways.

KrSatyam04 says:

Is it possible to get the support by buying some hardware from outside?
Wish so...(finger crossed)

msirapian says:

We'd better hope Microsoft (or Nokia) adds MHL support. My Nokia N8 or 808 had a hdmi out (and a tv out btw). Besides, a wired link would be more universal (when I go to hotels, TV are always HDMI)

I know @ least for WiDi receivers they have hdmi unlike mhl which you'd still need a way to convert to hdmi

darais99 says:

Miracast works now with my 1020 with the new update, mine now will search for one when before the update it would not

Seems faster too :P

Really? the article says only the latest models will support it!

reda igbaria says:

It works with a usb cable i think

Ed Boland says:

My 1020 works with the USB cable

But that's not Miracast, which is what this article is concerned with.

TuanLVT says:

Yeah it says searching but it means searching the USB connect

BonzeUK says:

My 920 says the same - connect by usb, and "searching"

Jf.Vigor says:

I intend to get the dongle and use this from my surface 3 to 70 inch. Getting rid of cable and only using online tv. Not sure how many uses id find using my 1520 and miracast but its a nice-to-have

JerqFase says:

Can we please stop using the word dongle? They're called adapters.

aitt says:

No

Posted via Windows Phone Central App

TuanLVT says:

I've never heard a word of dongle until today but adapters I've heard of

The reason I called it a dongle, is that is what it's name is ;)

'Asus Miracast Wireless Display Dongle (90XB01F0-BEX000)'

Look in the video, you can even see it on the TV screen before I connect to it. I'm not a fan of the word either, but in this case, I'm just being true to the product's name.

iosub says:

Hi there are several models 90XB01F0-BEX030, 90XB01F0-BEX040 .. Anyone knows the differences?

CJ Thunder says:

I've been saying dongle for 8 years and will continue to until I die.

Hoekie says:

Great hands-on. My Netgear PTV3000 is waiting.

zeke009 says:

Just make sure you have the latest firmware on it. I had some lag when using it with my Dell Venue 11 Pro and the latest update pretty much eliminated it.

Hoekie says:

Thx. I have. The combo Surface 2 and PTV3000 allready working great. And yes it needed the latest firmware (back then) to work great.

Will this work for Netflix in HD?

RaRa85 says:

The 630 has a better chipset than my 920. Oh...

freddywayne says:

Xbox One has Miracast already but, it's limited to Xbox Video when connecting through my Dell Venue 11 Pro. But, it works smoothly when it connects. Similar to Google's Chromecast device.

CokeZero98 says:

That's called DLNA you can also use it with apps like MetroTube for YouTube on the big screen. This was also supported by the Xbox 360.

Ceicob says:

Does 8X have it?

Wow! The video demo was really faster refresh rate than the Nokia PlayTo. I wish they could add it to 1020s model too

ScubaDog says:

I'm still trying to figure out the value of this over the Play To capability I already have on the Lumia 1020.  I can send music, videos and pictures just fine now.  I'd be silly to play on a big screen a game formatted for my phone...plus I'd rather play it on my full-blown computer anyway.  I don't even use my Xbox One for games because they suck so badly compared to my PC.  So...is there another use-case for Miracast capability that would be awesome?

not sure about your experience of Nokia PlayTo with videos... mine seems to suffer from a low cache transfer and have to wait for good 5-10 seconds for each 5-10 seconds of playback. that is with a more than decent wifi. for photos, it seems to be just fine, but videos, no. Miracast has (or is) becoming a globaly accepted medium for device image sharing. that is why MS Surface and newer Android tablets have them. so if you were to do any presentation that needed screen sharing at work, lets say powerpoint etc, then it is ideal. or if you were to use a big monitor with a surface tablet wirelessly, then you can extend/mirror or fully project onto the external monitor.

Actually practically any centrino N adapter paired with the correct intel cpu can do it in windows 7 & above

ScubaDog says:

I think DLNA has been around longer and is also "globally accepted".  It's been in every home theater device I've purchased so far.  And, as I said, I've had zero issues with it on either my Lumia 920 or my 1020.  It's been very convenient when I've taken video of our theater performances (LOVE the camera shell for the Lumia 1020 on a tripod!!!!) to simply throw them to our TV when friends are over.

sonus says:

Play To only streams local videos for which an app has interoperability.  So no DRM streaming of HBOGo, Hulu, no ability to use Play To with certain media players like GOM or VLC, etc. - just lots of limitations overal.

Mircacast shares your entire screen.  There are no limits on what you can stream to your TV.

ThePKReddy says:

Use it with third party apps for YouTube

AccentAE86 says:

cool, but bummed it won't work with my 1020.

 

Still way too much lag to play an action game with.  But I wouldn't use this for games, TBH. 

BataBole says:

Hey Dan, does that Lumia 630 runs on official/final release of 8.1?

There really is no "final" release of 8.1. There's feature-locked and then everything else. For instance, the Preview version you got today is newer than the version on the 630. And there's like 5 versions of the 'Update 3' release. It's more about the proper firmware than OS version, as OS versions at this stage are device/carrier specific changes and minor fixes.

BataBole says:

Thanks for the info.

nitsuk says:

Rumor has it that Microsoft may be announcing their own Miracast dongle: http://wmpoweruser.com/tag/surface/

Reebs Reebs says:

Mostly for newer PCs and Android users.

mslogjr says:

Ah the 810...

weatheryoko says:

Daniel,

Thanks for the great article & demonstration. Can you post which Asus Miracast dongle you were using? Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Justin

Sure: Asus Miracast Wireless Display Dongle (90XB01F0-BEX000)

weatheryoko says:

Great! Thanks! That was the one I've been eyeballing at Amazon.

Guys , can anyone tell me how to project my Lumia 820 to the screen ?? , what do I need for this ?? , is my USB cable enough???

mados123 says:

Sounds like for the 820, Miracast (wireless projection) won't work for you, even if you had the Miracast dongle/adapter/capable receiver.  For wired with USB, I believe you need 8.1 Dev preview installed and a PC with the app also installed.  Then you should be able to project your screen to the PC.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42536

I had to follow these troubleshooting instructions to get it working on my 1020 and 928.

http://www.monkeyslaps.com/projecting-your-windows-phone-screen-to-a-pc

 

geral77 says:

Grrr No support for the 925?? thats unfair!!!

when will the cyan update releases in India please reply.

TuanLVT says:

No one knows, but soon it will be released world wide

ricsip says:

The word "Soon" can literally mean anything between 3 and 6 months in the windows phone universe.

I nominate the word "soon" as the official curse word of the windows phone ecosystem.

Daniel, how does it perform when playing video? Is the video and audio perfectly matched/synced?

ilgulamc says:

We want miracast for wp7.8!

willboyce says:

Thanks for getting back to me folks. All I can say is Microsoft should really support all the windows 8 products with everything they can throw at it.
Lets face windows has a long way to go still

psychotron says:

Nice job listing the chipset compatible caveat there at the end. Hopefully it will head off all the "But you said......" whining when Cyan comes down and some people don't have that functionality. Then again, knowing how well people (don't) read around here it's still gonna happen to some degree, regardless.

Antony Chan says:

Lol, can't agreed more. Good luck Dan!

Davestrada says:

I want at least to be able to share my screen thru an HDMI cable on my NL920 but I know Microsoft it's not listening to me. :(

Ma Rio says:

Will you do a Lumia Cyan review since you have the L630? What features do we get?

SwimSwim says:

This better be made available for the 92X and 1020 series, their chipsets are more than capable of supporting Miracast. All comes down to whether Nokia will enable it or not.

So is the Lumia 1020 now a brick for new features such as miracast? I live this phone but miracast is a must have feature for me

Ed Boland says:

Is "Miracast" the same thing as "Project my Screen"? If yes, I've had Miracast working on my 1020 with the USB cable no problem.

Xpider_MX says:

Miracast is wireless.

Winphonelover, as of now the plan is for no Miracast support with older chipsets, sorry.

Guys , can anyone tell me how to project my Lumia 820 to the screen ?? , what do I need for this ?? , is my USB cable enough??

MadSci2 says:

A working version of an audio player should have been atop that list

m231 says:

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4(MSM 8227[L520, 525, 620, 720], MSM 8930[L625], MSM 8960[L820, 920, 925, 928, 1020]) not support miracast but i guess using this devices for project screen via micro USB MHL adapter after Lumia Cyan or future updates.

Newer SoC like Snapdragon 400, 600 and 800 series have Miracast.

andy21andy says:

iOS 8 looks awesome

stinkfish says:

Unfortunately it does, then we get dropped the bomb miracast is not going to work on my 925. Not sure how much more of this I can take. If they don't release an airplay equivalent in the final 8.1 release then I think I'm switching back

shreyas989 says:

PlayTo does the amazing job what airplay do. except playing online videos

explosive0 says:

You clearly have no idea how AirPlay works.

Hoekie says:

Looks are in the eyes of the beholder. WP8.1 looks more awesome to me. Each to their own.

isnoozu says:

Teachers in classrooms & educators in town halls will certainly benefit from this update. Will the adreno chip in my Lumia 920 after the cyan update be capable of this? Will the Surface 3?

Hoekie says:

The Surface 2 allready does.

Will it works on my Nokia Lumia 525.

ali27677 says:

Despite of all the things does anyone knows when cyan will arrive

HomeBound12 says:

Considering Carrier "testing" time I'm optimistically hoping to see it come towards the end of 2016.

Of course this is asming that Carrier(s) don't flat out drop the support for 520/920/1020 by then making us SOL (s.it out of luck)...

<grin>

I am using 8.1 preview for developers, can I update my phone with official wp 8.1?

Hoekie says:

Of course. Same as with the previous DP.

Will cortona be available to other countries in this firmware update?

shreyas989 says:

it'll be 2015 when it reaches india. UK and China are the next folks to recieve cortana(officially)

Thants a nice video. I'm glad you made that video. Yeah I will be using miracast to allow others to view pictures, I hate it when I have to pass the phone around so everyone can see what I want to show them. HANDS OFF MY PHONE! Skype, I dont know if I'm going to use that especially since the audio does not sync with Miracast. But If Skype audio does sync with Miracast I would use it in a heart beat.

shreyas989 says:

Why people are complaing that L920 don't support miracast? Yet not one from Nokia or MSFT said it wouldn't? 920 uses MSM soc which supports miracast.

Fiann says:

Because they specifically listed which devices would support Miracast. 920, 1020, et al are not on the list, only the new ones like the Icon/930, 1520 and 630.

KrSatyam04 says:

Isn't it possible somehow or just impossible?
Bcoz, I am thinking about this equation-
"Project My Screen" + "Play To" = "MiraCast"
(fingers crossed)

nsg1000 says:

I think this is gonna make me upgrade from my faultless and loved 820.

Sin Ogaris says:

I'm looking forward to playing asphalt 8 on my big screen tv, provided the lag is minimal enough.

Guys , can anyone tell me how to project my Lumia 820 to the screen ?? , what do I need for this ?? , is my USB cable enough?

Wevenhuis says:

so how does miracast work. If I have a large screen monitor of projector, but not a smarttv, will it also work on that. If so, how?

Ouch, a bit too much lag for my liking...

 

Videos will be fine.  However, I wanted to use miracast with RDC (remote desktop client).  Basically, use my phone as a Trackpad & Keyboard , keep my eyes on any HDTV , and work with my work or home server .

Wish he had shown if it works with netflix. Works with my Surface, but with the phone itd be pretty cool!
