No, Google has not removed the support miracast in Nexus to sell more Chromecasts

Nexus 1

For some time Android is compatible with miracast , shared by other device manufacturers standard hug and strategic alliances as the WiFi Alliance. A universal protocol that allows us to send content from one device to another easily. A few years ago it sounded like the great hope to bring order to the connection between mobile, tablet or computer and television. Still there on multiple devices and platforms, but the reality is not quite jell at all.

If you have a new Nexus (5X or 6P) ye probably noticed that display the option to send it through miracast Removed . This feature has not disappeared from Android since in Marshmallow still present in AOSP. The point is that Google has not decided to incorporate these two devices and that has caused some users to wonder why Google has decided to take this decision


conspiracy theories unsubstantiated

The screen sharing feature miracast is gone in the new Nexus. It is true, and we can not make it through this protocol but through Chromecast is a proprietary technology that Google, as we have seen in our analysis , works great for sending video or see the mobile screen directly on television or on a monitor. In fact, so little worth ( 39 euros is the official price ) is a highly recommended purchase.

The problem with Chromecast as the protocol is that it is closed: o have a device of this type and we have to endure. Leave offside standard as miracast is a task both because of lower functions as removed from the equation a solution that works without need for internet connection. Chromecast there needs to be a connected out so we can send content WiFi network.

Chromecast 2

Why What Google doing this? Internet complaints about this decision are multiple, incluso in official support forums but never the Mountain View have given an official response. This lack of communication has led some to think evil and believe that there are dark intentions on the part of this company. For what purpose? Chromecast to sell more, of course.

The conspiracy theories of some afirman that removing the Nexus Chromecast means a way to sell more HDMI accessories made by Google and thus get boost sales. The problem with this argument is that it does not stand by itself for several reasons. The most obvious is the lack of evidence, is there a relationship showing that Google does this to sell Chromecast? Eliminate the option of the Nexus is not sufficient reason to believe. Erasing have AOSP and prevent other Android manufacturers do, yes

Make no mistake either. Nexus smartphones are brand new but neither is a bestseller . If Google really wants to leave aside miracast should try it another way, not with some phones that are popular but do not add much to the volume of sales of Android devices. For a while the Nexus has sold a Chromecast gift, not only in the official Google store but through retail chains such as MediaMarkt.

Last but not least important Google is entitled to do what he pleases with its Nexus . We may think that they have some responsibility to the platform itself, but make no mistake: the Nexus Android devices are not pure. Android is understood by Google. The more experience “ Nature ” is AOSP, the foundation on which any manufacturers of smartphones or tablets works to make the corresponding ROM.

There solution anyway … do root

If you give arguments do not convince you, do not worry. You can still use your new Nexus miracast. All you have to do is rootearlo and then edit the build.prop and add the line persist.debug.wfd.enable = 1 “. As we have explained, miracast option is still present , Google has just passed activate these devices
