Screen mirroring

On my brandnew Nokia 8 (Oreo 8.0.0) the screen mirroring does not work with both my Samsung and Panasonics smart-tv's. Both tv's have built in support for mirroring/Miracast and have worked fine with a number of smartphones (Samsung, Jiayu, LG, HTC). The tv's are simply not recognized as available casting-devices. Does someone have a fix for this?

  • **** seen in other threads Google closes miracast in Android by default. Manufacturer need to enable this in to Work . And Nokia didn do that . They run close to stock Android.
  • That's too bad, I've used it quite often... Any solution for this, like using a specific app (haven't found any working app yet)? I know that I can buy a Chromecast, but I really don't want to reward Google for dropping Miracast...

     Same here, did not find the TV Device. Please bring a patch to enable it.

     I'm quite annoyed by this. Miracast was functionality I wanted in my new Nokia 8 so I looked it up to confirm it had Miracast and as far as this certification is concerned it suggests it does (bottom of page)... so what is gooing on? How and why is the Nokia 8 apparently certified for Miracast when the functionality is not available. Is the certification is a worthless lie or have HMD done a VW and gained the certification on the back of a specially altered device?

     Hopefully they did foreget to enable it on TA-1012 with Oreo.


    After some inspectig i think Miracast is working on TA-1004 devices, Mine was a TA-1012.

    I returned this Device and will get a TA-1004 in some Days, so then i can tell more.

  • I just bought the Nokia 8 (TA-1004 Android Oreo 8.1) and it's NOT working with Miracast. Please give me a download link to an app so I can cast my mobil screen. I don't want to bring with me the chromecast every time I visit someone I am unsure on not having a chromecast device. Google is acting just like the big company in Disneys movie Robots ® from 2005. (Let's suck out every nickel from mrs and mr knuckelhead) On a side note My "old" Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and my wifes Samsung Galaxy S7 (Both using Android Oreo 8.0) can use Miracast with no problem!!!

    Miracast is no longer included with Android and was removed by Google, it isn't the fault of HMD or Nokia and your phone isn't faulty, it is a side effect of having a stock phone with no added bloat.

    Miracast worked on my Sony Xperia Z2. Please enable this for the Nokia 8, or offer an alternate solution like an app we can download from the play store. I want to mirror my phones screen not just cast videos and pictures which I use my TV app to do.

    Que porquería, no puedo creer que se laven las manos diciendo que como tiene Android puro no trae miracast una decepción total y lo peor que adquirí un equipo tan caro como lo es el Nokia 8 que pena y mal gasto de dinero a la espera de poder cambiar de dispositivo
  • Try Nero Screening Player, this addfree app does it very well using DLNA as protokol.
    Find it here:

    Agreed! On my TA-1004 with beta Pie, Miracast works

    But the catch is that it works only if both are connected to the same wi-fi network. it's not exactly screen mirroring.

    Great news! Is this confirmed to be working on the release version of Android 9, or were these tests you did only in beta labs?


    Let's hope that HMD don't remove this feature again with a future "update". If they do then the Wifi Alliance certification should be revoked.

    Nokia 8 supports miracast only if both the tv and phone are on same wifi network dude.

    I thought that Miracast was based on Wifi-Direct? Maybe this method which has been found in Android 9 is not Miracast but something else...

    Hi @user236, check out this page:
    https://nokiapoweruser.com/video-cast-screen-on-nokia-8-7-plus-8-1-8-sirocco-without-chromecast/

    There's a video showing how it works.

    Update: I personally did not try it because I'm using Chromecast.
  • After Android Pie upgrade the Screen Mirror works like a charm ... 😀 ... Good job Nokia!

    The thing is, if they're not on the same wi-fi, the screen mirroring is not working. this is not quite miracast oh god i miss that from my Note 4.
  • Brilliant, just another small effort and unlock fm radio  :)

    Yes it works now with my LG TV, but there is lack of synchronization between the video and audio. 
    Can anyone test and confirm? 

    P.s. tested with Motorola X Play, the problem is the same. So maybe my TV is ****. It time to go to LG forum and to ask for firmware update... :) Hahaha
