    Follow the steps to successfully cast your screen-

    Before you begin casting

    1. Connect your phone to a Wi-Fi network.

    2. The mobile device, tablet or computer you are using to cast must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast.

    3. You must be running the latest version of the Chromecast-enabled app. You can always double check that you are on the latest version by visiting the Google Play Store.




    Cast from Chromecast-enabled apps to your TV

    1. Make sure that the phone you are using to cast is on the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast or TV with Chromecast built-in. 

    Open a Chromecast-enabled app.

    2. Tap the Cast button Inactive cast extension. Note: The Cast button isn't located in the same place on all Chromecast-enabled apps.

    3. Tap the device you'd like to cast to.



    4. When you're connected, the Cast button will turn color, letting you know you're connected.

    5. Select the app like Youtube, Browser, Google Music etc and look for the Cast icon as shown in the image below.

  • How to use Led Flash for notifications on Nokia 8.1 ?

    R

    Answered By Rohan Sengupta | 10 months ago

    Flash Notifications are used to give Flash Alerts when you get a Call / SMS. 


    This feature is already there is most phones by going to:

    1. Settings > Accessibility > Hearing > Flash Alerts
    2. Toggle there to turn it ON/OFF. 

    This is really beneficial in alerting without making any sound.


    • Don't get dishearted if your phone does not have this feature. There are a number of apps available on Play Store.
    • I'll personally recommend you to use the app named Flash Notification available in play store. It is really easy to use and you can enable it for particular apps and for different sound profiles(Ring/Vibrate/DND).
