    P

    Answered By Priya Patel | 2 years ago

    Viewing your favourite videos on your mobile is sometimes very irritating. Small screen, less volume and sometimes bad quality due to your screen. You can simply use a Chrome cast or Amazon Firestick to cast your mobile on a non-WiFi TV. Make sure your Chrome cast or Fire Stick and your mobile is on the same network. Simply follow these steps:

    1. Open the Google Home app Google Home app and go to the Account tab .
    2. Scroll down, look for your Chromecast/Firestick name and tap on it.
    3. Tap on the CAST SCREEN/AUDIO button.

    For a WiFi enabled TV, you simply need to connect your phone on WiFi where your TV is connected and simply search the device to cast.

  • How to enable VOLTE on Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro ?

    T

    Answered By Thirugnanam Sehgal | 2 years ago

    VoLTE is enabled and you need not enable it on your new Android smartphone generally. You just need to insert the Jio (VoLTE enabled) SIM in any slot (preferably, the VoLTE supported slot). By default, VoLTE will be active. If it is not, you can change the network preferences from Network option in settings.


    1. Go to Settings > Call Settings (Sim and Network)
    2. Tap Cellular networks > Enable Voice over LTE On/ Off.

    Alternatively, you can follow a much easier way:


    1. You can simply dial *#*#4636#*#* 
    2. Choose Phone information.
    3. Click " Phone Information" and Toggle VoLTE Provisioned.
    4. Restart the phone and you are done. It is as simple as that.

  • How to set custom ringtone on Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro ?

    D

    Answered By Deepabali Arun | 2 years ago
    At some time, you will get bored with the default brand tune on your phone and would like to have a trending or your favorite song as a ringtone. I got you. 
    You have the option to set the ringtone for all contacts and even for a selected contact.
    To do it:
    1. Go to Settings >> Sound >> Phone Ringtone.
    2. Click on Add/Select from phone option to get the music list.
    Note: If your phone doesn't show up music files, you need to keep the fine in media folder from where it will automatically access and show on the list.
