Android Phones Projecting Images and Videos to Laptop and Computer Screens by Wireless and no Bluetooth


I consider the title of this post kilometric. But i have no choice just to give you the idea of what this post is all about in a glance. YES! I really mean it. Viewing images and videos from any Android phones to bigger screens like PC, laptop, and even to projector screens is possible.

And believe it or not. It can be done wireless and without using bluetooth. You only need to connect your Android phone and your big screen to the same WiFi network. Using a small app (1.5M in size) called vscreens, downloadable free from Android market, images and videos from your phone can be viewed using a browser at the vscreens official web site.

The current version of the app is v1.5 and it requires Android 2.1 (Eclair) & up (Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice cream sandwich) to operate. The app is still at beta stage but reviews of it are already favorable due to its awesome result.

Here are the steps and screen shots of vscreens:

1- DOWNLOAD the vscreens app from Android market and follow the on-screen instructions.

1- DOWNLOAD the vscreens app from Android market and follow the on-screen instructions.

2- First on-screen instruction on your phone is to go to http://vscreens.com site where you shall be greeted with the QR Code which you need to scan using your phone camera.

3- Hold the viewfinder of your phone to the QR Code in the vscreen page and your phone shall automatically connect to the site.

4- Once scanning is done, the phone displays connection message with an instruction to choose the file to project to vscreens.

5- Selected file is displayed on the phone display.

Here are the screen shots from my laptop after connecting my Xperia Ray to vscreens:

On my laptop, reads my Xperia Ray is already connected to vscreens.

The image from Xperia Ray is simultaneously projected to the laptop.

The next time you’ll project your phone’s images to a big screen, open the vscreens app in your phone and follow the steps above.

Though vscreens is still on beta stage but it’s worth a try. Rest assured no harm in trying this app.

    • It’s not actually “transferring” but projecting the image (also video) from Android phones to the laptop or PC that are connected to a Wifi network where the phone is also connected.I have explained the process in my post above.
