Believe it or not, there are people who have both Android devices and Apple devices. It is true that it is somewhat rarer to have an Android smartphone and a Apple tv, but it is still more surprising that it is possible to do with Apple TV something that is still impossible with Chromecast. But, the truth is that it is so, we can send our screen to the television screen with Apple TV.
Sending the screen of our Android to the television screen through the Apple tv it is possible thanks to an application for Android. This app has been created by one of the CyanogenMod developers, Koushik Dutta. At the moment, of course, the application is in beta, and the developer invites users to inform him of any error that they find in the app so that he can solve it, so we can hope that the application has some other error.
The most surprising thing is that to use this application it is not necessary to have any Custom ROM installed, nor CyanogenMod itself. Of course, the only thing that is necessary is to have the terminal rooted and have Android 4.4.2 KitKat, something that the vast majority of users do not have at this time, although it is a matter of time before most end up reaching this version . The application is available on Google Play but in order to use it it is necessary to be registered in the CyanogenMod Google+ community. Registration in this program does not involve any type of expense, so we can install the app on the smartphone without having to pay anything. As we have said, the biggest problem right now is having a smartphone that has this version of the operating system. Also, the kind of people who own such a modern Nexus aren’t exactly the ones who buy the Apple tv. However, it is possible that in the future this application could be very useful for a large number of users. At the very least, that would allow users to get the same Chromecast and Apple TV features.
