Miracast is a wireless technology that allows Windows 10 users to project their PC screen to TVs, projectors, and streaming media players that are Miracast-compatible. This tool is very useful especially when you present a slide show, or you want to play games on a larger screen.

Up until recently, Miracast wasn’t available on recent Windows 10 builds, but the good news is that Microsoft managed to fix this issue. Build 15014 brings many bug fixes, including one that addresses Miracast issues.

Latest Windows 10 build fixes Miracast connection issues

More specifically, Insiders couldn’t connect Miracast-enabled devices although the respective devices detected each another.

I am also having problems connecting my Laptop to my Miracast enabled Sanyo TV. Both devices do show each other, but won’t connect for some reason. […] Anyway, I even tried connecting another Laptop, I got one to connect once, but it was making a bunch of noise like a feedback noise, so I disconnected it, and now even that laptop won’t connect. It does the same thing as my laptop. I even tried to connect a desktop I have, and again, both TV and desktop see each other, but won’t contact.

Fortunately, this problem should now be history as Microsoft confirms its engineers fixed it.

We fixed an issue where Miracast wasn’t working on recent builds.

The Redmond giant also fixed another Miracast issue affecting Windows 10 Mobile this time. More specifically, Miracast devices would appear connected, although users had disconnected them.

We fixed an issue on the new Bluetooth & other devices Settings page where Miracast devices would always show as connected, even if they had been disconnected.
