Cast content from a mobile device to a Microsoft Teams Room

Cast content from a mobile device to a Microsoft Teams Room

When there's content on your mobile device that you want to share with colleagues on a larger screen, just head over to a Teams Room. You'll be able to project the content directly from your device to the overhead screen, without setting up a meeting.

Caution: If the content you want to share is a PowerPoint presentation, see Cast a PowerPoint presentation from a mobile device to a Microsoft Teams Room.

Before you begin

  • The Teams mobile app must be installed on the mobile device, and Bluetooth must be turned on.

  • Both the mobile device and the Teams Rooms device must be connected to the internet.

  • The mobile device must be within 10 meters (32.8 feet) of the room device.
