Hello ColorOS SuperFans!

INTRODUCTION


Have you wondered how to mirror your Oppo mobile phone to your PC?


There are some primary use cases for wanting to cast your android screen:
1. For live streaming or recording game walkthroughs,
2. When you want to show photos/videos to friends/family without uploading to PC so that they can all watch simultaneously,
3. Watch movies/videos from the phone on the bigger screen of laptop,
4. Present your PowerPoint presentation quickly to others on your PC.


There are actually a few different ways to do this and each way does have its advantages and disadvantages.


One method is to install screen mirroring software like Reflector or AirServer on your PC. I have tried almost al of them Reflector, AirServer, Vysor, MirrorGo, ApowerMirror, LetsView etc.


Problems with them are that:
1. They are not free. Most have subscription based pricing. Trial versions have limited functions.
2. They need to be installed to PC. Download setup is about 30-60 MB in size. And they install background services for receiving screencast. Thus I don't like them.
3. They require to create account with your email.
4. Most of them didn't work for me. Some don't support Windoes 7/8. And some require latest Windows 10 version with Miracast support.
5. Only ApowerMirror worked on my PC but that too without audio streaming.
6. To control phone with mouse & keyboard, USB debugging need to be turned on.
7. Ads popup.


In the end, I came upon an app called AirMore (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.airmore&hl=en_IN) which is the best of all of them.


ADVANTAGES


• It is an android app. Tiny in size 8.6 MB. It is to be installed on the phone.
• Works Wirelessly.
• Works offline.
• No need to install any software on PC. It works in any browser, whether on Windows, macOS or iOS or other android device.
• No need to create account.
• Totally free with no ads.
• Apart from screen mirroring, it has many powerful features for managing your phone.


So if you are looking for screen mirroring app, AirMore is one of the best choices. Here's a short tutorial of it.


HOW TO CONNECT WITH PC?


If your phone & PC on a same wireless network, AirMore can be connected without internet and without creating account. Even if you don't have wireless router, it can create wifi hotspot to which you can connect your PC. Only if you want to connect your phone remotely, via internet, you'll need to create account.


Just open AirMore app and you'll be surprised — a straightforward, uncomplicated screen to connect with PC.

You can connect by 3 methods:
1. Open web.airmore.com on any browser on PC. There you'll get a QR code which you can scan on mobile.

2. Or click on Radar, your mobile will show up on Radar as nearby device. click it to connect.

3. Pressing 3 vertical dots shows IP address. In the browser, directly enter this address to connect.

All the installed apps are listed here. You can uninstall them. You can even download and share installed apps as apk files! Also if you have an apk file, you can install directly.

The Reflector is a screen mirroring feature. After giving permission on the phone, it shows your screen as you are using it. You can make it fullscreen and it changes orientation according to your mobile. You can take screenshots and screen recording and can save them directly to PC. Sadly, mirroring phone screen has no audio and you can't control phone with laptop keyboard.

With Clipboard function, you can edit clipboard of your mobile. For example, you can share website address on clipboard.

It even shows new notifications.

ALTERNATIVE


There is another similar app called "AirDroid". It is even more feature rich than AirMore. But I have not included it here because, it's app is large (38.7 MB) in size, shows ads and some features are limited in free version. If you wish, you can try it from: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sand.airdroid&hl=en_IN

CONCLUSION


AirMore makes it easy to manage your phone Wirelessly. For example, you want some video from your friend's laptop into your phone and you don't have data cable, you can transfer easily. The ability to transfer files between PC and mobile, AirMore offers amazing file management features in a familiar desktop like interface. You can stream audio and video files to PC without downloading them. So if you seek a phone management tool that works on a local network, I would suggest you to try AirMore.
