How To Turn On Screen Mirroring On Huawei P9
Huawei phones are gaining in worldwide popularity, and for a good reason. Thin, fast, powerful, and with Leica camera lenses, many are trading in their iPhones and Pixel Ones for these inexpensive alternatives. They can even handle some of the more advanced functionality, such as mirroring to a large display for business presentations, or just sharing vacation photos with friends. In this article, we’ll discuss how to mirror the ever-popular Huawei P9. There are two basic methods: Hard-wired, and wireless. They’re both simple and easy to set up.
Connect Huawei P9 To TV: Hard-Wired Connection
You will need an MHL to HDMI adapter. These are fairly inexpensive, and can be found at NewEgg.com, Amazon.com, bhphotovideo.com, or anywhere computer and smartphone accessories are sold. Some adaptors come with a power source that will allow you to charge the Huawei P9 while its connected to a screen. This is useful, as mirroring can drain the battery quickly. Once you have the adaptor, plug it into a standard HDMI cable connected to the HDMI port on your television or display. Then it’s just a matter of setting the television or display to receive video from the port you’re using. This will vary depending on the manufacturer, so if you’re not sure how to set the correct input source, you should consult the user guide.
Now your Huawei P9 will be mirrored.
(NOTE: If you have an older analogue TV, purchase an HDMI to a composite adapter.)
Connect Huawei P9 To TV: Wireless Connection
It’s possible to mirror your Huawei P9 wirelessly, but it requires a screen sharing device, such as the Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini2 Wireless Display Receiver. This is a dongle that plugs into the HDMI port on your television or display, and receives video wirelessly. Once you plug the dongle into your television or display, you need to configure both the dongle and your Huawei P9 to connect to the same WiFi network. Then you’ll need to enter your Huawei P9 settings and turn on Screen Mirroring.
Now your Huawei P9 is all set to be mirrored to your television or display.
(NOTE: Some smart TVs may not require a screen sharing device. Check the user guide to see if its compatible with wireless screen sharing.)
