If you have chromecast you can cast from the device and if you have a wifi enabled screen you can use the Huawei wireless projection.

With the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series, Huawei brought Easy Projection to consumers, enabling them to conveniently connect their devices with an external display for increase productivity. For EMUI 9.0, Huawei evolved the feature with a wireless upgrade. Users running EMUI 9.0 now have access to One-Click Projection, and Highlight and Capture on Big Screen, which let users to easily add highlights to and capture content projected on larger screens such as a TV.

In addition to Wireless Easy Projection, EMUI 9.0 supports a wide breadth of productivity features, including:

HUAWEI Share: In addition to transferring files between Huawei mobile and Huawei PC, users can now use HUAWEI Share to send files to a Bluetooth-enabled printer4;
Backup: EMUI 9.0 supports new ways for users to backup their important files. Besides HUAWEI Cloud, users may now store their backup on a SD Card, USB drive or a NAS (Network Attached Storage)5;
WPS with HiAI: The WPS productivity suite leverages HiAI capabilities to enhance its features. EMUI 9.0 automatically adjusts the alignment of documents, and can convert images and hardcopies into editable digital copies.

The wireless projection doesn't work with Chromecast unfortunately. When watching a video through the chrome browser the cast button should be there though, unless the specific site has disabled Chromecast abilities.

Mate 20 Pro is very bad with chromecast! Photos are bad to cast (pixelated and blurry on a 4k TV), no mirroring with chromecast. I have the Chromecast Ultra and I am very disappointed with the Mate. My daughter with a P Smart and Android 8.0 cast good Photos.

I have the same issue. This is very frustrating.

Yes I've had some success with third party ,Allcast in my case. As I've mentioned in another similar thread though if you've got a Samsung Tv the Samsung smartview app seems to work best. In both cases just remember you can only cast files that your TV actually supports.

Hi guys,

First of all i am a proud owner of the beast mate 20 X.

I want to share some information with you.

For screen mirroring no need to use thirdparty app with Chromecast, you can cast via Google Home app (official app) it is working fine.

For easy projection with Chromecast it is not supported, i want to have a technical explanation regarding this to understand if it can be implemented in the future upgrades/updates.

Have a good day.

Thanks SeyfTN

I've checked this mirroring again in google home and it's better quality now. Maybe issues were fixed in the last few updates of home.

It would be nice to have a cast from gallery, as was on my previous sony xperia phone which could send to dnla device like my smart tv, chromecast also like can be done within the google photos app

Hi thankfully my device was replaced by sbe with a new boxed 2019 manufactured boe screen device & I've seen very happy since although it was a few weeks to wait without a proper device.

I've used desktop mode on a recent smart TV, I think it needs screen mirroring support to get the phone on desktop mode.

Mirroring the screen onto the chrome cast is probably better than desktop mode as the processing on the phone is more snappy than on the TV I used with desktop mode.

Technicalities are usually mostly software support as you can usually find a 3rd party software to do most things.

All the best with the device
