  • Android Projectors: What does this mean? How do they work?

    What is an Android projector?

    An Android projector is a projector that runs Android software to power its operating system. Think of Android as a computer inside your projector allowing you to run programmes and interface as you would when using a PC.

    All projectors will have a form of operating system allowing you to alter various settings and set up the initial connection with your media outlet. Android projectors function in a similar way but have the added bonus of being able to run various applications, essentially turning your projector into its own media outlet.

    How does it work?

    The Android projector itself works in a similar way to your phone, once you have connected the device to the internet via Wi-Fi you can download various apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

    The ability to be able to use applications via the projector means that you don't have to connect it to your PC or other device in order to stream content. This also allows you total freedom with your projector and is why the Android OS is used in a lot of the portable projectors that are currently on the market.

    Common misconceptions

    There are a couple of common misconceptions that come with the use of Android software being used in a projector and we will answer them here:

    1. If you own an Android phone yourself it doesn't need to be on the same version as the projector in order to work with it. Most projectors will use older versions of Android as they don't need to be constantly updated unlike mobile phones.
    2. If you own an iPhone it will still be able to work with the projector, this is normally done via screen mirroring over Wi-Fi. The operating systems not being the same doesn't have a bearing on the connectivity.

    Where can I get one?
