With smartphones becoming the focal point of entertainment in our lives, the humble TV has taken the backseat. However, with TV’s becoming smart, it’s time that we combine the best of both worlds i.e. TV and smartphones and come up with the most ideal solution — screen mirroring.

Whether it’s via Chromecast or HDMI cables — the options to mirror your phone’s screen to the TV are numerous.

However, if you happen to own an iPhone and an Android TV, the situation gets a bit tricky because of the obvious reason — clash of the tech titans.

Worry not, help is on the way in the form of AirPlay. Despite the several features of AirPlay, it alone can’t pull off such stunts. That’s when a third-party Android app comes in handy.

The app of the hour is AirScreen – AirPlay & Chromecast & DLNA. This app creates a server of its own and, with the aid of Wi-Fi, mirrors the phone’s screen to the Android TV in a matter of seconds.

Sounds interesting? Let’s jump straight in and see how this setup of Apple’s AirPlay and the Android app works.NOTE: The Android TV and the iPhone need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Next, start the server on your Android TV. Open the app and navigate to the Start Server option and click the Start icon.
