Screen mirroring software allows you to project (mirror) what you can see on your smartphone, tablet or computer and show it on your TV screen, projector, or external monitor without the use of a cable. The TV or projector will present you with the exact replica of your computer or mobile device in real time, reproducing any movement.

Unlike our home mirrors, screen mirroring will not flip the image horizontally. An easier way to understand mirroring is by thinking of copying.

This is a great feature for sharing and viewing local content like pictures, documents or videos and for professional and educational presentations.

When you turn on screen sharing, any user that has the link (and optional access code) can easily view your screen directly from their internet browser without the need to install any additional software. This makes ScreenStream one of the easiest options to set up and use.

To stop sharing your screen, you can easily open ScreenStream and click the turn-off button.
