If you have a rooted device, you can connect your tablet to your TV using Miracast. Miracast won’t work with your Google Pixel C unless it’s rooted.

What is Miracast? It’s a form of wireless HDMI. It lets a device display its screen on a TV or monitor wirelessly. The difference between Miracast and Chromecast is that Miracast doesn’t need an internet connection to work. It forms a direct connection between the two devices.

If your TV does not support Miracast, you may need to get an Amazon Fire TV box, Roku, or a Miracast Video Adapter.

You also have to enable Miracast on your tablet. To do so, you edit the build.prop file. Here’s how to do that.

Step 1: Install the Build.Prop editor.

Step 2: Go to the upper right corner and tap Add>New.

Step 3: Set your property name to “persist.debug.wfd.enable” and set the value to “1”.

Step 4: Reboot your Google Pixel C.

Step 5: Enable Miracast by doing the following – Go to Settings>Display>Cast>Menu>Enable Wireless Display.

USB-C to HDMI Not an Option

The Google Pixel C tablet do not support VESA Display Port Alternate Mode, which means it will not work with USB Type-C to HDMI adapters.

The USB Type-C to HDMI adapter features a male USB Type-C connector on one end and a female HDMI port on the other. It mirrors devices’ screens onto larger screens or TVs. Google created such a dongle to be used with the Pixel C tablet and Chromebook Pixel, but it doesn’t work with the Google Pixel C tablet.

That means you’ll have to try one of the other solutions above to mirror your tablet’s screen onto your TV.

You can also cast your whole screen in the Casts app by opening the side menu and selecting Cast Screen / Audio.
