How to play Android phone games on your TV with Chromecast

Chromecast is a device that takes to the TV any content displayed on the screen of the Android phone, including games. Even if a Google Play game does not offer compatibility with Google's dongle, it's possible to resort to mirroring your smartphone. It is worth remembering that by mirroring the screen to play, the user can perceive delays between their interaction and what is displayed on the television.

However, the function follows as the only alternative if you do not have more advanced equipment with Android TV. See the tutorial on how to play any game on your phone on Chromecast.
