Screen mirroring is displaying the contents of your phone's screen on a larger display like HDTV. This can be achieved either by using the built in mirroring function of the android phone. The HDTV should have Wi-Fi connectivity otherwise it won't work. The second option is to use chromecast, but not all apps support Google cast and finally is to a MHL cable.
MHL functionality is also not available on all phones it is found mostly in high end android phones. So we have learnt that to use android screen mirror to PC or HDTV we should have at least mirroring function in our phones or should have the MHL function.
