  • How to cast my Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro screen on TV ?

    P

    Answered By Priya Patel | 1 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.

    Answered By Thirugnanam Sehgal | 1 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.

    Answered By Sarah Venkatesan | 1 years ago
    Well, sometimes you watch some movie and you want its tune as your ringtone. Happens right? It happened with me last when I watched Sherlock. Remember that violin tune.? Yes, so I got the tone and copied it to my phone by simply mailing and downloading it to the email ID configured on my phone.
    1. Once there, navigate to Settings
    2. Open the sound section
    3. Find Phone Ringtone option and open it
    4. Select local ringtone and select the ringtone which was copied
    Well, you are done. Each time your phone rings, you listen to your favorite tune.
