How to connect your Android smartphone or tablet to your TV

Are you tired of watching shows on your smartphone? You do not want / can not hold your tablet for an hour and a half to watch a movie?

To display the screen of your Android on your TV and make the most of all your programs (Canal Play, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube videos) then follow this tutorial! We explain how to connect your Android to your TV.

Connect your Android to your TV with an HDMI cable

An HDMI cable (which stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface in French) makes it possible to connect just about any video source to a television screen. If your TV is under 10, then it has an HDMI port.

HDMI cables have the advantage of transmitting HD video and sound. So you do not have to worry about losing video quality or having to use speakers since the sound will come out directly from your TV.

Unlike Apple products, many Android has an HDMI output (or one of its miniature versions).

Three HDMI jack sizes are commonly used.

Type A (left) is the standard. It is often present on large devices, such as televisions, computers, or game consoles.

The type C (in the middle), also nicknamed Mini HDMI, and the type D (right) generally qualified Micro HDMI, are found almost exclusively on tablets and smartphones.

Whatever your type of outlet, no need to break your piggy bank since you can find HDMI cables around 10 €.

If you do not have an HDMI output on your phone or tablet, there are other ways to connect them to your TV.
