We are living in an era where mobile phones have taken supremacy over everything. Although most of us enjoy watching videos, playing games, and reading on a tiny screen, there are times when you need a bigger screen.
You might want to play a game with a friend or maybe watch a movie with the family on a bigger screen. Now that is possible using your mobile device.
Yes, you heard it right, Anycast dongle devices are special streaming devices that allow you to enjoy the small mobile screen on a bigger screen. Anycast supports Miracast and AirMirror for Android and Windows and AirPlay for Apple devices.
